UFC President – Dana White said he would make good arrangements to persuade “Eagle” Khabib Nurmagomedov to return to the UFC ring one day.
Khabib’s farewell career after the victory over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 made martial arts fans regret it. The Russian fighter has turned down many offers to expect him to return to the title defenders, as he thinks his goals have been achieved, and there is nothing left for him to conquer in the UFC.
The Russian puncher will take the time to take care of his mother, compensate for her feelings after a long time playing. The death of Khabib’s father, Mr. Abdulmanap, also caused psychological stress. “The Eagle,” said he swore in front of his father’s grave that he would hang up his gloves, and only return if his mother allowed it.
However, Khabib also revealed, his father’s dream is to see his son reach 30 wins. So this may be the reason the Russian puncher thinks again about going back to the octagon
Khabib repeatedly insisted he will not return
During the UFC 256 post-match press conference, Dana White told The Schmo that he would meet the Russian boxer next month to convince him to return.
The meeting was awaited by martial arts fans to learn more about the upcoming major battles. Who will step onto the platform to challenge the lightweight championship belt?
Khabib’s return will be decided in his next meeting with Dana White
Accordingly, Conor McGregor is about to compete with Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 on January 24 to Vietnam time. And Michael Chandler will soon have his next match at UFC. His opponent could be Justin Gaethje who lost to Khabib at UFC 254. Meanwhile, Charles Oliveira was seen as the top contender after an overwhelming victory over Tony Ferguson.
Currently, Conor McGregor is looking for a chance to revenge on Khabib Nurmagomedov since the painful defeat before. If true, this match is the biggest rematch in UFC history. But, first of all, McGregor had to beat Poirier at UFC 257 which took place in January. Besides, the most important issue depends on whether Khabib Nurmagomedov wants to return or not.
