Khabib Nurmagomedov will forever be considered as one of the best UFC fighters to have competed in the MMA world. He ended his MMA career for good back in March and since then has been enjoying his life in retirement. Khabib also admitted he could never be on Mike Tyson’s level. It seems Khabib responded to Jake Paul’s condition as well.
There was a lot of speculation regarding him returning to the UFC as he was still undefeated, with many believing he would come back to make his record an impressive 30-0. However, Dana White had confirmed back in March that the Russian fighter has retired for good.
Khabib previously took to Twitter and revealed that Jake Paul is more than welcome to compete in his Eagle FC MMA promotion. Jake Paul previously revealed that he would only be open to fighting Khabib inside the Octagon if he is offered at least $25 million.
While speaking on the Full Send podcast, Khabib responded to Jake Paul wanting a lot of money to fight Khabib in the Eagle FC promotion. Khabib made it clear he won’t fight Jake Paul. He added that his offer still stands if Paul is serious about transitioning from boxing to MMA.
“Come on, Jake Paul. I don’t think so. In MMA, [I’ll win in] like couple minutes.
If you wanna in MMA – because he never fight in MMA – he don’t have experience. We can give him chance. We can sign him.”
We will have to wait and see whether Jake Paul will eventually make his way to Khabib’s MMA promotion as it is highly unlikely Khabib will ever come out of retirement to fight Jake Paul.
