Khabib Nurmagomedov, 30, says he doesn't 'have a lot of fights left'

Khabib Nurmagomedov, 30, says he doesn't 'have a lot of fights left'”

"The Eagle", however, is refusing to overlook his interim counterpart, saying: "When I watch Dustin Poirier, I think it's going to be my toughest challenge, but I always think like this". I think this is can improve your legacy.

"I think that's more of an individual thing", Poirier said on the UFC 242 conference call last week (via MMA News).

Since January 2019, ESPN+ has held the exclusive rights to show every single UFC event in the United States - and of course that includes UFC 242. I am focused, and we are nearly there, [the] fight is around the corner and I'm very focused on Dustin Poirier. I don't want to make [a] mistake, I don't want to underestimate this guy. "Who knows. Nobody knows".

Looking at the likes of Jon Jones, GSP, and José Aldo - a dominant run as champion has often been enough to see one's status as a legend solidified, and in the case of Nurmagomedov, he believes that lightweight is his one and only home.

"I think if you want to improve your legacy, changing weight classes, I don't think this is a help for you", Nurmagomedov added.

"If you lose couple times and you win one title, second title, you lose again, and then you win third title, this does not make you great", Nurmagomedov said. This is my opinion. On YouTube, those four fights have had 35 million views on the global UFC channel as of Tuesday evening PT, while they've gotten 49 million views at the same point on Facebook and 13.8 million views on Instagram. It doesn't matter what they want.

"When you go to the cage and again, again, again, you win, win, win, win, that helps to talk about "this guy is tough".

"I don't focus on welterweight or featherweight".

Nurmagomedov insists the former two division title holder is now not deserving of a title match and made it clear that he will put his title on the line if McGregor makes a return and goes on a 10-fight winning streak. He sits on an impressive 12 fight winning streak, the longest in UFC lightweight history. "I want to focus on my weight division".
