“It seems to me that the main motivation for Khabib to return may be elementary that he is bored.

This can happen.

I think that my mother would support any decision of her son.

Another thing is that he has not yet announced that he is returning, ”Sport24 quotes Hajiyev.

The 32-year-old Russian fighter announced his retirement on October 24, 2020 after defeating American Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. In total, Nurmagomedov has 29 victories and not a single defeat.

On January 16, UFC head Dana White announced that Nurmagomedov allowed his return if he liked how someone showed himself in the McGregor - Poirier or Dan Hooker - Michael Chandler fights at UFC 257, which will take place on the night of 23-24 January.

Earlier, White stated that Nurmagomedov is the best fighter in the world at the moment.
