Khabib Nurmagomedov Says He’s Starting To Hate Combat Sports

UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to defend the gold against UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 242.

Another tragedy recently struck the combat sports world when professional boxer Maxim Dadashev died due to injuries suffered in a bout that took place last Friday.

Nurmagomedov, reflecting on the passing of Dadashev, revealed on Instagram that he is starting to hate combat sports:


Этот случай нам ещё раз доказывает, что спорт это не самое главное, есть вещи куда важнее. Каждый раз когда я вижу или слышу такие новости я начинаю ненавидеть этот спорт, в котором мы друг друга бьем. Все временно, слава, деньги, титулы, и вся наша жизнь, мы все уйдём с этого мира, никто не останется. Стоит задуматься. Терпения всем родным и близким Максима. Творите добро и пусть Всевышний вознаградит нас за наши дела и поступки в следующей жизни, и простит нам наши грехи.

Here is a translation of what Nurmagomedov wrote, provided by Google Translate:

“This case proves once again that sport is not the most important thing, there are things that are much more important. Every time I see or hear such news, I begin to hate this sport in which we beat each other. Everything is temporary, fame, money, titles, and our whole life, we all leave this world, no one will remain. It is worth thinking. Patience to all relatives and friends of Maxim. Do good and may the Most High reward us for our deeds and deeds in the next life, and forgive us our sins.”

UFC 242 takes place on Saturday, September 7 from the Du Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
