Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants Two More Fights Before Retiring, Says His Father

Khabib Nurmagomedov is set to call it quits after two more fights and wants his farewell bout to be in Moscow.

Khabib Nurmagomedov's father, Abdulmanap, has claimed his son will target 30-0 before walking away from the Octagon.

The 30-year-old defended his UFC lightweight title against Dustin Poirier in stunning style at UFC 242 last weekend.

He beat the gutsy challenger to record his 28th professional victory, and the Russian's father has indicated he'll have two more fights before retiring, including a title defence in Moscow.

"For Khabib, 30-0 is enough," his father and trainer said.

"Regarding his last fight, then of course, we would like his final title defense to be in Moscow," he added.

Abdulmanap cornered his son in Abu Dhabi as 'The Eagle' produced a near-flawless performance as he submitted Poirier in the third round.

He now has two title defences to his name and it appears Tony Ferguson is next in line after compiling an impressive 12-fight win streak.

As for a potential showdown in Moscow, Nurmagomedov's arch rival Conor McGregor proposed a rematch to take place there.

But Team Nurmagomedov aren't interested in a rematch. Instead, they're hoping for a mega fight against Georges St-Pierre.

"Nobody really cares about what Tony," his manager Ali Abdelaziz said.

"Nobody gives a sh*t really. As far as I know, GSP is next. That is what I want. Tony doesn't get what he wants. We get what Khabib wants, and if Khabib calls me and says he wants Georges St-Pierre, Georges St-Pierre will be next."

Who do you want to see Nurmagomedov face next? Let us know.
