Mendez: Khabib didn't reach his full potential
Javier Mendez, the head coach of AKA gym, noted that the former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov did not reveal his full fighting potential. According to Mendez, if Khabib had not ended his career, he would have shown more and more interesting things in his next battles.
“Khabib did not reach his full potential. Not even close. He is capable of much more. In his last fight, he was already effectively hitting kicks, which shows his progress. If Khabib had not retired, in his next battles we would have seen even more new things from him."
