The president of UFC Dana White said her meeting with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will only take five minutes.
Nurmagomedov comes from seeing action in UFC 254, when he increased his undefeated to 29-0 after submitting to Justin gaethje in the second round. In the interview with Jon Anik, surprised the world by announcing his retirement from MMA.
“This is my last fight”, said an excited Nurmagomedov. “This is my last fight in the UFC.”.
Despite the announcement of Nurmagomedov, White has been looking for the Russian to change his mind and seek to get the 30-0.
“Obviously I will meet him because I think he should fight again.”, said White a ESPN. Look what he did to Justin Gaethje. Look at what he’s done to all the opponents he’s faced. I think he should fight again and I’m going to push him as hard as I can for one more time. “
White will meet with Nurmagomedov within the next few days in Abu Dhabi. Despite the champion’s stance, the president of UFC do not expect to spend a few minutes the conversation, as he says, it is a situation that will have two results.
“When I left Abu Dhabi last time, he and I were texting each other, we talked about why I think he should keep fighting.”, said White. “I was very excited to get out of that fight. Now he has had time to rest, to think about that, about all the other things. This will be a five minute conversation. I think he will fight, but we’ll see. It won’t be a long discussion or conversation. It’s going to be a yes or a no ”. said White a MMA Junkie.
