Does Nur Mammadov back on his retirement decision?


Last update: 3 – Dec – 2020 5:24 pm

During a press conference held by the Russian champion Habib Nur Mammadov, he answered journalists’ questions about the possibility of his return to the battlefield.

Habib said: “Questions about returning from retirement will haunt me for the rest of my life. I have no plans to return now. I want to focus on more important things. I am no longer happy to win. ”

He added, “People will always have different opinions, and someone will think that it is necessary to continue fighting, and another will disagree, but my opinion is: If you end your career, end it.”

In response to a question in the event that UFC President Dana White made a huge financial offer for Habib’s return in order to fight a new match, would he accept or not.

The 32-year-old Habib replied: “White will, but it is hard to surprise me with the opponent. Who will introduce me? Both McGregor and Borier were strangled in front of me, so what would I find out if we were to confront us again? There is no sporting interest to me, they both surrender to me ”.

He continued: “The horse does not run before the donkey achieves a victory. If they offer me money, about 100 million, then this is really a problem, but again, I don’t see any sports interest there.”

Habib abruptly retired after defeating American Justin Gaitji in the match that brought them together on the 24th of last October, in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, as part of the “UFC 254” tournament, achieving his 29th victory in his professional career, without suffering any defeat.
