“That’s a Lot of Little Khababies”: Fans React as Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Post Shows Real Reason for Retirement

Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from all aspects of MMA just a few days ago. He decided to call it quits after conquering the octagon with an undefeated career that helped him usher into the UFC Hall of Fame. Nurmagomedov returned to his native village and posted a photo on social media with his relatives. Fans have showered love on ‘The Eagle.’ Nurmagomedov hails from the Republic of Dagestan in Russia. He is the first Dagestani as well as the first Muslim fighter to win a UFC championship title. ‘The Eagle’ has dominated fighters like Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Justin Gaethje, and Rafael Dos Anjos just to name a few. After retirement, Nurmagomedov became a coach and a cornerman. He primarily trained fighters hailing from his homeland, including his cousins but life had different plans for him.

He decided to get away from MMA in late December 2022 to focus on other business ventures and his family. One of his many reasons to retire was the loss of his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who was also his coach. The Russian recently shared a photo with his family and fans acknowledged the same.
