The Legend of Khabib Nurmagomedov

Published

on

After defeating Justin Gaethje via triangle choke, Khabib Nurmagomedov made a shocking revelation – retirement.
The UFC undisputed lightweight champion was in tears after the victory, knowing that it will be his last fight but mostly dedicating his late father\’s victory.
Nurmagomedov remains unbeaten with 29-0. He still has a lot left for his career. However, the death of his father was a massive blow to him.
His father was there in his fights, supporting him.
Khabib was already emotional when he made the scale during the weigh-in.
“There’s no way I’m going to be back without my father,” he said after the fight.
His father died due to the coronavirus. He was weakened by the disease and was significantly affected because he just had heart surgery.
Adbulmanap Nurmagomedov was also Khabib’s trainer.
This scenario was similar to what happened to Michael Jordan in 1993. After winning the Chicago Bulls\’ third straight championship, Jordan was on the floor crying as he mourned his father, who was killed.
Hence, the similarities also opened a conversation where he stands in the greatest of all-time list in the UFC.
He is placed second all-time. Jon Jones still holds the top spot. But did his recent win made a difference?
It was the third successful title defense of Khabib.
Here is the other noticeable feat the Nurmagomedov made.
Most of her matches have the same faith in a takedown in a single fight match. In 2003, he made 21 successful takedowns against Abel Trujillo.
He had the most gate attendance fight. Khabib-McGregor. One of the most intense matches in UFC history. It shattered several records.
And of course, his clean record of 29 wins and no defeat.
Khabib is \’built differently.\’
On his last fight, UFC President Dana White revealed that the champ had a broken foot and a mump during their training but insisted on going on and fight
ing.

Khabib also amazed everyone with video footage of him wrestling a bear barehanded. Insane, right?
On his preparation against Gaethje, he was seen swimming in a river but against a strong current.
Khabib was built differently. His training is with nature. His dedication and

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

It has been made known that FLOYD MAYWEATHER is formally in discussions to face
Manny Pacquiao again in Las Vegas the following year with his record on the line.
After waiting for the two superstar adversaries to come to terms for half a decade, the
American defeated Pacquiao in 2015 over the course of 12 rounds.
But after eight years, the two boxing greats plan to resume their fight for a sequel to
their £500 million box office hit.
The negotiations between the two camps are being facilitated by Global Titans, who are
marketing Mayweather’s upcoming exhibition fight in Dubai.
We’re already working on Floyd and Manny Pacquaio, their CEO Uday Singh told
SunSport.
And a huge fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao might be announced
as early as December. A second match, not a demonstration.
After defeating former UFC champion Conor McGregor, 34, in 2017, Mayweather, 45,
decided to retire. Since then, he has fought four exhibition matches.
Additionally, he has never discussed going back to the ring to defend his pristine 50-0
record, especially versus Pacquiao, 43.
However, Mayweather’s perspective was altered after meeting Singh in Vegas prior to
his exhibition match with YouTuber Deji on November 13.
Since Manny Pacquiao was initially hesitant as well, Singh stated: “I’ve already had the
first meeting with Manny Pacquiao.
“It’s just egos, nothing else. But at the end of the day, Floyd’s a good guy, he’s a good
fighter.
“Once you’ve satisfied him with his purse, he’s happy to fight whoever. But it’s to his
interest as well, he said, ‘Why not? Let’s do it.’
“He hasn’t had a real proper fight since 2017, the last one was with Conor McGregor.”
Singh admitted he initially faced a fight to get Mayweather to agree to a pro bout
opposed to an exhibition, but won him over eventually.
He said: “Yeah, it was hard. But then again, at the end of the day he knows what people
want and he’s an entertainer.
