For various reasons, a former UFC lightweight champion doesn’t think his rival Ferguson is the same fighter anymore. Once one of the most feared lightweights in the division, El Cuy has endured three consecutive unbalanced defeats after a series of impressive 12 wins in a row.
“He is 38 years old,” said Nurmagomedov. RT sports.. “Tell me how he can make a comeback. He was dominated in the last three games. Striker, Grappler … (Benil) Darish, (Charles) Oliveira, (Justin) Gaethje and many other styles made him I ruled. When you were 38, I believe you had to brake, and around him, “Hey, you’re old. You have to stop.”
Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have been on the clash course for years, but that is unlikely to happen after the abolition of five games and the recent retirement of “Eagle”.While Ferguson still holds I hope Nurmagomedov will come out of retirement Nurmagomedov believes that Ferguson has taken too much damage so that he can finally finalize his score.
Nurmagomedov referred to his teammate Shamil Zavurov. Shamil Zavlov is 37 years old, having had only one retreat in almost five years.
“We’ve been telling Shamil for the last year and a half,” Nurmagomedov said. “Shamil isn’t too young. We tried our best to convince him that this should be his farewell battle, but if we didn’t tell him that, he would be 45 years old. You would have been fighting until you were knocked out. It affects your health. He has more than 10 children – he has to raise them.
“You need to think not only about your MMA career, but about your future. You will be 40, 50, and 60 years old, but how do you live when you are over 50? You have to think about your future. not.”
