Khabib Nurmagomedov open to playing football

Khabib (29-0) announced his retirement from MMA last year in October. The Dagestani mauler defended his title against the interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.

Since then, fans have held onto hope that he would return someday for the action and it seems Khabib is interested in a return but only this time; he is interested in another sport and it’s not MMA, it’s football. ‘The Eagle’ has repeatedly iterated his feelings on the sport.

Khabib recently opened up on where he would like to play if he gets a chance. “If I were to play, it’d probably be in the premier league. Not the Russian one, in England. I’m almost 33, I don’t think I have a future in professional football.”

Well, at this point it does not matter through which sports he will make his return to action. For his fans, it’s only about glimpsing the man who has excelled in everything he has touched.

What did you make of the news of Khabib launching products?
