Rizvan Magomedov, manager of the Russian ex-UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (29-0), spoke about the offers his client received after retirement.
Magomedov claims that Khabib was offered to speak not only according to the rules of MMA, but also according to the rules of boxing and kickbosing.
“Was Khabib offered to return? There were a lot of such proposals. Even if we are not talking about the UFC, there were a lot of other interested persons who wanted to see him in their country or on the continent. There were a lot of interesting proposals, but the point is the point. And so many proposals came. Starting from boxing, kickboxing and the like. It was before the fight with Justin Gaethje, and after “ – Rizvan Magomedov said “Sport 24“
Recall that Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement after defeating American Justin Gaethje by choke hold last October. Not so long ago, UFC President Dana White officially confirmed his resignation, and Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will compete for the vacant belt.
