Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from the sport of MMA with an unblemished record of 29-0. Though the Eagle battled the injuries in his early career, he became the most dominating force in the company’s history. Nurmagomedov barely lost any rounds during his reign at LW. With 3 title defenses and 12 wins, it tied him for the most title defenses and consecutive victories at LW. Thus, making him the GOAT of the LW division.
