Next fight of Khabib Nurmagomedov is not determined yet.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, spoke about the possibility of holding a fight with former boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr by the rules of boxing.
UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will miss the meeting of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which will deal with a scuffle after the fight between Nurmagomedov and Conor MacGregor.
In Moscow, the first press conference of Khabib Nurmagomedov took place after a confident victory in the US over Conor MacGregor. But the battle was remembered not only by its pre-match prehistory - which is the attack of McGregor in April in New York on the bus with the MMA fighters and with Khabib and high intensity, but perhaps not least his scandalous aftertaste. After the fight Nurmagomedov didn’t hold back his emotions and, skipping the fence, started a fight with a representative of the opposing team who insulted him during the whole fight.
Former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson turned to the current holder of the division title Khabib Nurmagomedov: “You couldn’t box your way out of a paper bag. I see you and the team working on that footwork. Running from a much needed ass whooping. Keep swimming shrimp, the fans like me better. I’m the champ, chump.” Ferguson tweeted.
On October 7 at UFC 229 in Las Vegas UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov beat the former champion in two weight categories Conor MacGregor. After that, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin called Nurmagomedov. In addition to congratulations, Putin said words of support to the fighter. Zaur Kurbanov, co-author of an autobiographical book about Nurmagomedov told about this.
