Khabib wins big at UFC 242
Last Saturday night saw the 30-year-old Dagestani retain his lightweight title after defeating Dustin Poirier via submission in the third round at The Arena, Yas Island. He was full of praises for Dustin Poirier post-fight and wore his T-shirt claiming he will sell it and all the proceedings will go to the Louisiana-born fighter’s charity.
“UFC is all about respect and I appreciated all the respect that I got from Dustin in the build-up to this fight. I really appreciate it.”Khabib Nurmagomedov

“I want to come back here, maybe next year. Why not? Because UFC has already made an exclusive contract with Abu Dhabi and next year they’re going to make another show here too. We’ll see.”Khabib Nurmagomedov
