Magomed Ismailov said that Khabib Nurmagomedov does not need to return to sports
Russian mixed martial artist (MMA) Magomed Ismailov speculated about the possible resumption of his career by Khabib Nurmagomedov. It is reported by “Match TV”.
The athlete gave a low rating to the expediency of such a decision. “I don’t think Khabib needs to come back. If you have already taken a big break, you don’t know how it can turn on you after returning, ”Ismailov said.
The Russian also expressed doubt that Nurmagomedov would decide to return to the sport. According to Ismailov, even the highest fee will not be able to convince him to do this.
On June 8, the head of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Dana White, wanted to fight Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson. “Hopefully they make each other so angry that I can get them to fight,” White said. The Russian ended his career after the third defense of the title of the champion of the organization in 2020.
