Khabib Nurmagomedov Predicts His Perfect MMA Record Will Come To An End

Khabib Nurmagomedov Predicts His Perfect MMA Record Will Come To An End

Khabib Nurmagomedov believes his unbeaten record in MMA will come to an end at some point.

The UFC lightweight champion boasts an impressive 28-0 record in MMA overall, including twelve consecutive victories inside the Octagon following his debut in 2012.

His innate grappling ability has meant nobody has ever come close to beating him but speaking ahead of his unification bout with interim champion, Justin Gaethje at UFC 254, Khabib says it's normal for skill-sets to wane as time goes on.

He also stated that a fight with Tony Ferguson will never happen after the scheduled bout was nixed for a fifth time earlier this year, allowing Gaethje to beat 'El Cucuy' in the main event of UFC 249 and earn a title shot.

"Nobody can be the same for long time," Khabib told ESPN, as per Metro.

"Nobody. Not Tony Ferguson. Not Khabib. One day, somebody beat you.

"God doesn't give nobody power, speed, reaction, and mental everything in one level always. One day it's going to go down, and his day (Tony Ferguson) has come in May. Tony Ferguson is finished.

Conor McGregor’s Latest Theory On His Loss To Khabib Nurmagomedov Has Caused A Stir

"Now he's going to come back and somebody's going to beat him again. When you take damage like this, you're never going to be the same, never ever, even if you're Tony Ferguson, he took too much damage.

"I like Tony Ferguson but he's stupid guy, this is what I think. He keep talking about me. Why are you talking about me? Justin Gaethje just smashed your face, smash you everywhere. Why are you talking about me?"

Gaethje, who helped Khabib cut weight for his fight with Darrell Horcher many years back, has been touted as an opponent who could cause Khabib plenty of problems given he's an aggressive striker who can also go to ground.
