Khabib Nurmagomedov discusses Justin Gaethje vs Max Holloway BMF title bout at UFC 300: “It makes no sense”

Khabib Nurmagomedov, now retired, is one of the most well-known Russian MMA fighters of all time and is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes in the sport, showcasing dominance like we’ve never seen. He is also known as “the only guy to have not bled in a sport of blood.”

‘The Eagle’ decided to ride off into the sunset following his victory over Justin Gaethje in 2020 in Abu Dhabi, as a tribute to his late father and in keeping a promise to his mother of never fighting again. He may have retired early, but he still shares his take on recent UFC matchups, just as he did recently on the upcoming BMF title fight.

Khabib Nurmagomedov talks on Gaethje vs Holloway bout

The highly anticipated card of UFC 300 on April 14th is around the corner and it has been built up to be a stacked card from top to bottom. The co-main event will feature an unexpected clash between Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway for the B.M.F championship. Although this matchup will without a doubt deliver, with the unrelenting styles of both Gaethje and Holloway, fans are still curious about what the matchmakers thought before making this fight official.

Gaethje and Holloway are from separate weight classes and both of them have matters of their own to attend to in their divisions. Gaethje is in all likelihood in line to face Islam Makhachev next for the lightweight strap, and Holloway should have logically focused on his featherweight run, as he is too not far from a title shot with the new champion Ilia Topuria being crowned at featherweight.

Khabib Nurmagomedov recently commented on the reasoning behind making this fight and stated that “it makes no sense.” The Dagestani UFC icon is not wrong in his analysis because at UFC 300, if both Gaethje and Oliveira, who is fighting against Arman Tsarukyan, come out victorious, it would be tricky for the organization to select a title contender between the two. It would be interesting to see what the UFC has in their plans.

Details on Khabib Nurmagomedov’s fan tour

Taking a step back from UFC 300 and delving more into Khabib Nurmagomedov, it is undeniable that he is still and will always remain one of the most respected and beloved figures in MMA.

“The Eagle” is loved not only for his past masterclasses inside the octagon but also for his wisdom and his highly honored personality that we still get to see. Good news for his fans, Nurmagomedov is going on a visit to Canada for a much-anticipated fan tour.

It is perhaps the first time Nurmagomedov is going on an official fan tour, and it is only fair if he increases his visits to other countries as well, given how special he is to all of us.
