He took to Instagram recently to announce massive giveaways for his subscribers on digitalkhabib.com. ‘The Eagle’ is providing all kinds of offs for his customers.

Nurmagomedov last competed at UFC 254 in October 2020. ‘The Eagle’ choked out Justin Gaethje to make the third successful defense of his title.

However, that was his last outing in the Octagon as the undefeated Dagestani decided to hang his gloves up for good. The Russian retires with a stellar record of 29-0 to his name.

The decision of his retirement was made official by the UFC later this year. Charles Oliveira captured the vacant lightweight title at UFC 262.

Nurmagomedov suffered a difficult 2020 as he lost his father and mentor, Abdulmanap due to coronavirus. That played a pivotal role in his decision to retire.

‘The Eagle’ feels he has done enough over the course of his career in the UFC to solidify his legacy. Nothing excites him anymore as he believes he has absolutely dismantled any challenge put in front of him.

It’s hard to argue that as well. He will certainly go down as the greatest lightweight in the history of the UFC.

However, he is currently acting as an online trainer for his followers. His followers on digitalkhabib.com will have an array of gold, platinum, and diamond cards to choose from to win prizes.

It’s hard for the fans to swallow the fact that they won’t be seeing Nurmagomedov fight inside the Octagon again. Many believed despite his relentless dominance, the best was yet to come from him.
