• Conor McGregor Takes Parting Shot At Khabib Nurmagomedov After Official Retirement Announcement
After defeating Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 in October 2020, UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from MMA in the post-fight interview.
UFC President Dana White thought that Khabib made this decision in the heat of the moment, and tried to make Khabib think about it again and come back for at least one more fight, and try to take his perfect MMA record to 30-0.
However, Khabib’s decision is final and he has retired at 29-0.
Dana tweeted the following about it:
“29-0 it is.
He is 💯 officially retired. It was incredible to watch you work Khabib “the Eagle” Nurmagomedov thank you for EVERYTHING and enjoy whatever is next my friend.”
Khabib posted the following about it:
“I want to thank everyone, the UFC, Dana White, my father, my team and my fans
I hope you will accept my decision and understand me 🦅 “
Former UFC Double Champion Conor McGregor, who was defeated by Khabib at UFC 229 (the highest selling PPV in UFC history due to their rivalry), wrote the following after hearing about Khabib’s final decision:
“Happy retirement kid, smell ya later. Never forget who came in the game and made ye. Straight from my big Irish balls. Remember folks, if you hate cutting weight so much, all you have to do is move up a division.
The new UFC Lightweight Champion will now be crowned at UFC 262 on May 15, when Michael Chandler faces Charles Oliveira.
