Dana White shouldn't press Khabib Nurmagomedov to return to UFC 2

UFC president Dana White has plans to meet with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov this week in Abu Dhabi and the topic of conversation will be persuading Nurmagomedov to return to the UFC once more.

Order UFC 284

Alexander Volkanovski and Islam Makhachev, the top two pound-for-pound fighters in the UFC, will clash at UFC 284 on Feb. 11. Order the PPV now to watch the champion vs. champion fight live on Saturday.

In October, Nurmagomedov announced his immediate retirement from mixed martial arts after defeating Justin Gaethje via second-round submission.

“I’m obviously meeting with him because I think that he should fight again,” White told ESPN. “Look at what he did to Justin Gaethje. Look at what he’s done to every opponent he has faced. … I think he should fight again and I’m going to press him as hard as I can for one more.”

When Nurmagomedov announced his retirement, he also revealed that he made a promise to his mother that he wouldn’t compete again.

“She didn’t want me to fight without father, but I promised her it was going to be my last fight, and if I give my word, I have to follow this. It was my last fight here,” Nurmagomedov said following his victory.

But Dana White and the UFC still plan to pressure Nurmagomedov into returning to the UFC for one more fight.

In this video, Patrick Auger, Matthew Wells, and Drake Riggs share their thoughts on Dana White’s recent comments.

Do you think Khabib Nurmagomedov will return to the UFC? Or do you think the UFC should just let the undefeated lightweight retire in peace?

The greedy Trump loving bald headed ba$tard should leave Khabib alone. Khabib is a man of integrity and his word is a total part of that integrity. White on the other hand has no integrity. He doesn’t pay his fighters well and has nothing to do with their “independent contractor” healthcare. White is a total POS.
