Khabib : ‘People can’t understand it, but what can you do?’


‘The Eagle’ is adamant that he will not be returning to the UFC.

“This fight was like no other,” Khabib told Acting Head of Dagestan Sergei Melikov upon his arrival back home (h/t RT Sport). “The emotions in this fight were completely different. Everything was completely different without my father. I was offered the fight right after everything happened. I had the decision to accept it or turn it down, nobody knew about this, or retire, or I could come back, fight and then retire. Now I tell the people close to me that aren’t happy with me retiring that even if I fought 10 more times, I’d still have to face that decision. This decision could come up when I’m 32, 34, 35. It’s a hard decision because I’ve been fighting all my life. I’ve been on the mats for as long as I remember. It’s difficult to leave and do something else. People can’t understand it, but what can you do?”
