UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will meet with UFC President Dana White for a second time to discuss his fighting future.
MMA Plus's Bruno Massami shared a tweet showing a video clip with Nurmagomedov on Match TV, speaking in Russian where he revealed the planned meeting with White at the end of the month and how he believes Dustin Poirier deserves to be champion of the 155-pound division.

Nurmagomedov who last competed at UFC 254 where he submitted Justin Gaethje in the second round with a triangle choke, has made his intentions pretty clear about wanting to retire and honor his mother's wishes. Even with rumors spreading of a potential super fight with former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre, the lightweight king of the Octagon as of now at least seems content with calling it a career at 29-0.
