Now that the dust is settled and Khabib Nurmagomedov is officially retired from MMA, what could possibly be next for “The Eagle?” Will he continue his legacy in the sport by training fighters and continuing to corner them? Or, will he silently walk away from the limelight? One thing is for sure, Khabib is already making great use of his time by giving advice to fans. Even “fans” who claim that Jorge Masvidal slept with their girlfriend.
On official scorecards, Justin Gaethje won the first round of the fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov according to two out of three judges at UFC 254. Both men pushed the pace and respected each other. Gaethje was able to land a few hard leg kicks. Furthermore, he was able to stay alert during the fight as “The Eagle” pressed on.
