Khabib Wants To 'Tend To His Farm' As He Dismisses Dana White's UFC Comeback Talks

Khabib Wants To 'Tend To His Farm' As He Dismisses Dana White's UFC Comeback Talks

It appears Khabib Nurmagomedov has no interest in making a UFC comeback as he has business to deal with elsewhere including his farm project.

He walked away from the UFC with a perfect 29-0 record, having beaten the likes of Edson Barboza, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.

But UFC president Dana White is rather confident 'The Eagle' will return to the famed Octagon next year.

However, the unbeaten Russian superstar has dismissed White's notion and says he has other plans going forward - from studying to farming.

"You can fight until you're 40 but there should be a goal," the 32-year-old said via RT Sport.

"I had a goal to reach the summit and I got there. Further, I have no competitive interest. Next year I will graduate.

"I'd like to [build on] my thesis, do a masters course, dedicate more time to studying."

"No, Khabib's going to fight," he said when asked about the fighter's retirement.

"I believe he's going to. (McGregor-Poirier is) not for the title.

"I told you guys that I think he's going to go to 30 (wins)," White continued while referencing that Nurmagomedov is still in the USADA drug testing pool.

He added: "If he's still testing - why the hell would you want to test still if you're not going to fight?

"He hasn't committed, but I feel like he's going to, and I'm not really pushing him.

"We talked about it and he just fought. Let him take some time, spend some time with his family, spend the holidays. There's no rush."
