Shocked MMA Fans Raise Concerns Over Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Physique After UFC 254 Weigh-In

MMA fans expressed their concerns over Khabib Nurmagomedov's physique after his weigh-in for the upcoming UFC 254 fight with Justin Gaethje.

And Khabib will now make his sensational return to the octagon on Saturday when he clashes with interim champ Gaethje on 'Fight Island.'

However, shocked fans took to social media and Reddit to share their thoughts on the 'brutal' weight cut the 'Eagle' undertook for the Gaethje fight.

"He looked so drained up there," one Reddit user commented.

A second said: "cutting weight is so brutal."

While one Twitter user tweeted: "Khabib looked mad worried on the scale. Thankfully he made it though. Bad weight cut maybe?"

While a fourth added: "Damn this looks like a rough weight cut... I dont [sic] remember khabib normally having issues?"

Khabib, who hasn't fought since his victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 last September, once again reiterated his desire to hit a 30-0 record before retiring from MMA.

When asked about his retirement, the 'Eagle' told Yahoo! Sports: "Honestly, I don't know.

"30-0 is going to be great. It's looking good, it sounds good. 30-0, okay. It's going to be a great record, this is like [Floyd] Mayweather in MMA. We'll see, I'm very close to it."
