The President of the ultimate fighting championship (UFC) Dana white believes that the Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov may be the greatest fighter mixed martial (MMA) in the history of sports. It is reported by MMA Junkie.
“I think Habib in a pair of fights from the status of the greatest in history,” said white. He noted that the Russian showed an impressive series of victories in a difficult weight class.
At the press conference after UFC 242, where Nurmagomedov defended the title of champion of the organization in a light weight, white admitted that the following contender of Russians can become the Irishman Conor McGregor. Such a scenario is possible provided that the fight of Russians against the American Tony Ferguson will not be held.
