'Khabib Is One Of The Most Boring Fighters In The World'
Major League Baseball star Josh Donaldson believes Khabib Nurmagomedov is "one of the most boring fighters in the world."
UFC fan Donaldson, 34, launched a scathing attack on Nurmagomedov as he slammed his fighting style.
The Minnesota Twins player, who's friends with UFC welterweight Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson, appreciates Nurmagomedov's dominance yet believes he's boring on the eye.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani, he compared him to Jon Jones, saying: "If Jon Jones wanted to be a boring fighter, he would go and wrestle guys down and take them down and submit them if he wanted to."

He continued: "I think Khabib is one of the most boring fighters in the world.
"I'm on record as saying right now he's one of the most boring fighters.
"Because this is why - he is dominant on the ground. You win. I'm agreeing with you. He is the most dominant on-the-ground fighter in the world.
"But Khabib, although he's touching Gaethje, he never hurt Gaethje on his feet.
"And when you're talking about Gaethje and you're talking about Ferguson, Tony Ferguson took a lot of punishment but they were on the feet. None of them were trying to threaten to the ground."

Nurmagomedov, 32, racked up plenty of grinding decision wins earlier in his UFC career, but the 29-0 fighter has finished his last three opponents in Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.
