UFC head to meet with Khabib Nurmagomedov in Abu Dhabi
UFC president Dana White still believes UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will make his much-awaited return soon to fight one last bout.
The Eagle retired from the sport after defeating Justin Gaethje in the main event of UFC 254 on Fight Island in October. Though the UFC lightweight champion claimed that he has no interest in fighting again, Dana White and others think that the undefeated Russian is not done yet.
The UFC supremo has let Nurmagomedov keep the lightweight belt wrapped around his waist as he takes some time off and decides what to do with his career. While talking about Nurmagomedov’s return at UFC Vegas 15's post-fight conference, White once again said that The Eagle will hopefully fly again. Earlier, the champ showed interest in meeting Dana White, to which the Boss added that he’s set to meet Khabib in Abu Dhabi very soon, the Republic World reported.
"I do (believe he fights again). I do. He hasn’t said that to me, but I do. We’re going to meet in Abu Dhabi. Sometime soon. I’ll let you know when you need to know," White said.
