Khabib Retires From MMA With a 29-0 Record
Khabib Nurmagomedov, has recently announced his retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA). He made this announcement after successfully maintaining UFC lightweight title at UFC 254 against Justin Gaethje.
He still holds the record of 29-0 that is third successful title defense.
It is important to mention here that previously he has defended his title against Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
Nurmagomedov said, "Today I want to say this is my last fight. No way am I coming here without my father.
"When UFC called me about Justin I spoke with my mother for three days.
"She didn't want me to fight without father and I said this is my last fight - and I have given her my word.
UFC president Dana White revealed that Khabib had fought with a broken foot. However, this announcement was made after the fight.
He further added, " What this guy's been through, we're all lucky that we got to see him fight tonight.
"I'm hearing rumours of other things that I didn't know about that you guys will hear about when he comes out later, I'm sure.
"Apparently, he was in the hospital, he broke his foot three weeks ago. So he has two broken toes and a bone in his foot that's broken or something like that. That's what his corner was telling me.
"He is one of the toughest human beings on the planet. He is just the number one pound for pound fighter in the world. And seriously, I have to start putting him up there at G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time) status with whoever else you think is the G.O.A.T."
