The head of the UFC, Dana White, expressed his opinion on the decision of the lightweight champion of the Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov to end his career in mixed martial arts.
“I really like Khabib. I like him both as an athlete and as a person. I respect him. Khabib can say whatever he wants, but I am sure, convinced that if in other battles everything goes right and he has the right opponent, he will fight him. I believe that. Habib, I know you know that too. I saw it all in his face. The guy fought all his life and suddenly one day he said that the spirit of rivalry had died out in him and let it all go to hell? I can’t buy it, ”White said in an interview posted on YouTube channel ESPN MMA.
32-year-old Nurmagomedov announced his retirement on October 24, 2020 after defeating American Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. He has 29 wins and no losses.
Earlier it was reported that White does not intend to deprive Nurmagomedov of the UFC champion title.
