One of the great dreams of every athlete, no matter what industry it is – is to retire at the peak. Few also succeed in fulfilling this, as the instinct for competitiveness often outweighs ambition and leads them to continue to play / fight / tackle even when the level is a little (or a lot) down. Habib Normgomedov, well, can teach a thing or two about meeting goals.
The UFC fighter wrote last night (Saturday) another glorious chapter in his legendary career – when he defeated Justin Geichi in just a round and a half, on his way to retaining the lightweight world title and an incredible balance of 29 wins versus 0 losses. At the end, without any prior preparation, he declared: “This is my last fight. I will not be able to continue without my father.” Is there a better way to retire? Not sure.
In any case, Habib’s retirement naturally created a tremendous echo in the “sporty street,” and especially of course in the martial arts genre. Many turned to the social network account to say goodbye to the legendary warrior, including even his arch-rival over the years, Conor McGregor, who wrote: “Good ability Habib, I will continue from here. Condolences on your father, you and your family.”
Justin Geichi, who reportedly lost to Habib, also provided a dose of ‘gentlemanliness’ and said while in the ring: “I felt alive, that’s why I came here (to the ring). The only reason I stayed after the fight is to praise this man. I I know he made his father proud tonight. “
The best farewell seems to have been borne by Dana White, the president of the UFC. “Habib is the toughest ‘son of a ***’ on this ball. The pressure he puts on his opponents is unbelievable. He just enters the arena and does what he wants. What happened to this guy … we were all lucky to see him. Tonight once again. “
White, one who has seen a fighter or two over the years, declared: “Habib is the best fighter in the world today, and it’s time to start talking about him seriously as one of the greatest of all time, no matter what the names are in this debate.” When asked if he really believes this is his last battle, the president replied “yes” and added: “He deserves freedom, he deserves to recover – not just physically, but emotionally recover after what he went through with his father’s death. We are all lucky to see what we saw. The night”.
