‘For Khabib 30-0 is enough, he wants his last fight in Moscow’ – Nurmagomedov Sr.
UFC lightweight ruler Khabib Nurmagomedov is targeting a 30-0 record before calling time on his career and wants his final title defense to be in Moscow, the fighter’s father and trainer has indicated, RT reports.
Nurmagomedov, 30, returned to the octagon to defeat interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier in a dominant performance at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi at the weekend, extending his unbeaten record to 28-0.
And now the fighter’s father and trainer, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, says that his son would be content to retire with an unblemished 30-0 slate, ideally holding his final title defense in Moscow.
“For Khabib, 30-0 is enough,” Abdulmanap told Russian news agency TASS.
"Regarding his last fight, then of course, we would like his final title defense to be in Moscow,” he added.
