Nurmagomedov became world lightweight champion (up to 70 kilos) in 2018 at the UFC fighting association. He is best known for his much-discussed fight that same year with Irishman Conor McGregor, in which he successfully defended his title. When McGregor was caught in the Russian’s neck clip in the fourth round and gave up, the fire hit the pan. Nurmagomedov climbed out of the cage and several people clashed.
“Today, I want to announce that this was my last fight,” said Nurmagomedov after also slamming Gaethje. The 32-year-old cage fighter from Dagestan indicated that he would stop because his father died this year from the consequences of the corona virus and he does not want to continue without him as a coach. On Instagram, Nurmagomedov shared a photo of himself and his father.
Khabib now has an impressive track record. The fight with Gaethje was his 29th consecutive victory in mixed martial arts (MMA).
On Twitter, McGregor expressed his respect for Nurmagomedov. “A great performance”, wrote the Irishman who has already announced several times to stop, but kept coming back to it.
