Dana White is the President of the UFC and is certainly a controversial figure in the world of MMA. Dana White was also previously accused of an ‘illegal crime’ in Las Vegas.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is undoubtedly one of the best MMA fighters in the history of the MMA world and finally ended his career while still being undefeated and at the top. Since his retirement, Khabib has been enjoying life in other ways. Nurmagomedov’s last professional MMA fight took place back in October 2020. He earned a second-round submission victory over Justin Gaethje to successfully retain the UFC Lightweight Title. After the bout, an emotional Nurmagomedov told Jon Anik that his fighting career is over. He mentioned a promise he made to his mother of never fighting again after the death of his father Abdulmanap. Khabib also revealed why he really tired from the MMA world.
When Khabib sent several texts to White demanding his teammate Islam Makhachev get the next 155 pound title shot, he got no answer.Nurmagomedov told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto:
“Honestly, this is first time since we started talking to each other that he don’t respond to me. I send him message saying ‘No way someone else can fight for the title. Islam has to be there.’ He don’t respond. I think he busy, maybe. It’s OK. Everybody make mistake.”
“So what he’s saying is I read the message and didn’t respond to it? Well, it was nothing personal. I got him and Ali [Abdelaziz, Makhachev’s manager] all over me about Islam [Makhachev]. There’s no answer, no. I wanted to do that fight with him and Beneil Dariush.”
