We are all still under the impression of the end of the fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje and the decision on retirement that Khabib made after it. No one expected this to happen, that is, everyone believed that they would try to go to a 30-0 ratio and thus end their careers.
That is exactly why everyone was shocked, because he did not announce it to anyone. Something about how he felt and how he reacted afterwards, UFC President Dana White said in an interview with journalist Zach Gelb. Most people who watched the fight certainly reacted the same way: With sadness Khabib’s statement shocked many but one should accept such a decision as well because he did a lot for the UFC "The fight was great and then everything was full of emotion.
When Khabib spoke after the fight, everyone stood up and no one said a word. Everyone absorbed every word he said," White said, adding something about his reaction. : "No one was aware of what he was going to do, not even his coach.
I stayed seated after the fight and wondered what was going on."
White had a talk with Khabib
Then he discovered something that could cheer up the fans, and if that were to happen many would be happy "Khabib and I talked after the fight, I haven't told anyone yet.
I have to tell you he was overwhelmed with emotion. I have a feeling he could come back and go for 30-0. His father wanted him to get to 30-0, and I think he would like to make his wish come true, ”White expressed his impression."
This opinion has already been shared by some MMA analysts and it will be interesting to see how Khabib will behave in the future. He decided to accept the advice of his mother, who does not want to watch him in fights without a father.
But there is also an opinion that she could change her mind if she notices how much Khabib misses everything and how much he wants to get to those 30-0. Time will tell us the answer. Sure, everyone would love and look forward to Khabib coming back but it is questionable how realistic it is for something like this to happen.
Khabib has already shown that he is one of the greatest fighters and the question is whether he will have a motive to come back and hold another fight, especially if we know the background of the whole story
