Rafael Dos Anjos Posts Rare Footage Of Khabib Nurmagomedov 'Snoring' After Choke In 2014 Fight

Rafael Dos Anjos Posts Rare Footage Of Khabib Nurmagomedov 'Snoring' After Choke In 2014 Fight

Rafael Dos Anjos has released rare footage of Khabib Nurmagomedov 'snoring' in the middle of a choke during their 2014 fight.

Having seen the 29-0 fighter state he has no intention of facing Dustin Poirier or Conor McGregor again after already forcing them both to tap, the 36-year-old has weighed in on Instagram.

The Brazilian-American fought Khabib in April 2014 on the Fabricio Werdum vs Travis Browne undercard at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

At the time, Dos Anjos was two places higher than Khabib in the lightweight rankings but lost via unanimous decision.

However, six years on and he's out there claiming nobody came closer to beating the undefeated Dagestani fighter than he did and only a "slipping rib" saved him from being put to sleep.

"He did not choke me. As a matter of fact I got him snoring until a slipping rib saved him from [sleep emoji].

"He beat me fair and square, but no one got closer to putting the Champ out. My plan was to beat his brother and go after that neck again. That plan felt [sic] apart for reasons beyond my control, but I will keep sharping [sic] my tools just in case he decides to come back and chooses me."

McGregor and Gaethje both won a round against 'The Eagle' but ended up tapping out to him in.

UFC president Dana White has been trying to get Khabib to do a u-turn and has expressed confidence in him returning for one more bout.

The latest statement from Khabib is that he will only make a comeback if he gets the blessing from his mother, who wanted him to stop fighting following the tragic death of his father and coach Abdulmanap.
