Fedor Drops Khabib Retirement Bombshell

Khabib is arguably the best at what he does as he is called the greatest of all time by many. Khabib is so known and respected that even some founders of what we call today’s MMA have spoken on him. Now, we have words from one of the father’s of today’s sport on Khabib…Amanda Nunes Video With Wife ‘Angers’ UFC Fans.



MMA Pioneer Fedor Emelianenko is the man we are talking about.

Fedor thinks fans should respect Khabib Nurmagomedov’s decision to retire because everyone has the right to make that choice. I have to agree on that one, Fedor.

Khabib Nurmagomedov called it a day directly after the death of his father as Khabib went out on top in doing so.
Personal loss and lack of competitive interest were at the core of Khabib’s factors when it came to deciding what he wanted to do next.

‘The Eagle’ is still only in his early 30s, so there’s really plenty of time if he wanted to get back into the octagon.

While speaking to Nolan King of MMA Junkie about Khabib’s retirement, Fedor Emelianenko stated: “Every fighter has a right of choice. It’s not up to the fans, it’s up to the fighter. Khabib had his own way. He wanted to leave undefeated with his legacy. Again, it’s up to the fighter. You can’t really judge him. What you have to do is respect their opinion on what they want to do in their career.”
