"In general it's unrealistic [to imagine a fight in theory]. Khabib is a fighter, not a boxer. And in the rack he moves on full sole. In all his fights Nurmagomedov won by moving to the parterre and exhausting his opponent. And knockout victories in the rack, in my opinion, he doesn't even have any.

As Vladimir Vladimirovich said, if my grandmother had a male gender, she would be a grandfather. Khabib has made his point and said he's stopping performing and won't be coming back," Emelianenko quotes "AllProSport".

Recall, on September 18, Emelianenko defeated blogger Artem Tarasov on points. The meeting was held by the rules of fist fight in mixed martial arts gloves.
