Megasoup Posted January 7, 2022 Report Share Posted January 7, 2022 Khabib Nurmagomedov might be retired, but the debates about his fighting career are still going on. The latest take about Khabib’s career came from former UFC Interim champion Colby Covington who said that Khabib never fought a high-level wrestler. Colby went on to add that Khabib even had a tough time against Gleison Tibau. "Khabib Nurmagomedov never really fought a high-level wrestler that could challenge him or that was good, you know, in both areas of striking and wrestling and submissions and defensive wrestling. So, you know there's always been those doubts about Khabib's legacy... Even, a lot of people thought that he lost to a guy he used to train with all the time, Tibau. Gleison Tibau. He won a split decision over him but a lot of people thought he lost that fight so I definitely think that puts a damper on Khabib's legacy,” Colby had noted in his recent interview with Submission Radio. Recently, Dana White had also talked about how Khabib cannot be considered as the UFC G.O.A.T due to his early retirement. The Russian ended his MMA career back in October 2020 with an unblemished record of 29-0 which saw him pick up wins against names like Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor, Edson Barboza, and Justin Gaethje. Since his retirement, Khabib has shifted focus to his business endeavors and is now enjoying his time as a promoter for Eagle Fighting Championship. https://lockerroom.in/blog/view/Khabib-Nurmagomedov-Colby-Covington?fbclid=IwAR2qSzRV6SuxyO2EDl_WHMKbhZzl-XQqH64Jpy1CYC_fHjW4HluRX2V7N2c Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
