Khabib Nurmagomedov says he had his last UFC fight
He defeated Justin Gaethje of the United States on Saturday and retained his lightweight title for the third time

MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. Reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov of Russia has said he just had his last UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fight.

"It was my last fight here," Nurmagomedov said after he defeated Justin Gaethje of the United States on Saturday submitting him early in the second round, and retained his lightweight title for the third time. "When UFC called me about Justin I talked with my mother. She doesn’t know how I fight without father, but I promised it’s going to be my last fight, and if I give my word, I have to follow it," he added.

The fight was the first for Nurmagomedov after the death of his father and lifelong coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov who passed away on July 3 due to COVID-19-related complications.

"I know only one thing what I want from UFC on Tuesday - you have to put me on number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world because I deserve it," the Russian fighter said.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, hailing from Russia’s North Caucasus Region of Dagestan, was the first Russian to win the UFC champion title during the fight against his US opponent Al Iaquinta in the spring of 2018. At the UFC 229 tournament in Las Vegas in October 2018, Nurmagomedov defended his champion’s title in the fight against Conor McGregor, a renowned Irish professional mixed martial arts fighter and boxer. In early September last year, Nurmagomedov defended his UFC champion’s belt for the second time in a title unification bout against Dustin Poirier of the United States.

The 32-year-old Russian fighter, nicknamed ‘The Eagle,’ currently holds an unblemished record of 29 wins in all of his mixed martial arts fights.

'I will miss you, father': Khabib breaks silence following the death of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov
UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, whose father Abdulmanap passed away in early July due to complications stemming from a Covid-19 infection, has taken to social media for the first time since the tragic news.

Khabib, who has been off social media ever since his father's passing, broke the silence on Wednesday night. He posted a picture of himself hugging his father at UFC 242, which became the only fight which his father could corner him in his UFC career.

The picture was accompanied by a quote from the Quran in English, Arabic and Russian:

"And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], 'uff,' and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word. And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, 'My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.'"

Following the quote, Khabib also added a message in Russian.

"I will miss you Father, you were a Father, a friend, brother and coach in one person. You tough me almost everything I know, I hope that you were happy with me. The contentment of parents is the contentment of Allah," read the final part.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, a world-renowned mixed martial arts coach, died in a Moscow hospital following a heart attack on July 3, after having been being diagnosed with the deadly coronavirus. The heart attack required emergency bypass surgery, after which he was twice placed into a medically-induced coma.

The elder Nurmagomedov was buried in his home village of Kirovaul, in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan.
