UFC President Dana White Makes Announcement On Khabib's Retirement

UFC President Dana White Makes Announcement On Khabib's Retirement

Dana White says Khabib Nurmagomedov will return to the UFC if any of the lightweight stars at UFC 257 do something spectacular.

Nurmagomedov walked away from the promotion after defending his UFC lightweight title against Justin Gaethje last year.

He announced his shock retirement in the Octagon with the undefeated fighter holding talks with UFC boss White last night.

And the 51-year-old has revealed that 'The Eagle' will reverse his retirement decision if any of the UFC 257 contenders do something spectacular and make him want to come back.

"He's accomplished everything he set out to accomplish," he said during the broadcast of Max Holloway vs. Calvin Kattar.

"He thought that Oliveira looked really good in his fight against Tony Ferguson. Next Saturday, we have the McGregor-Poirier fight and Chandler and Hooker on there.

"His words to me were, 'I'm gonna watch this fight.' He said, 'I would never tie up the division, hold the belt, keep the belt away from anybody else.
