Khabib Nurmagomedov Has No Competitive Interest: "I Tend To My Farm"

Khabib Nurmagomedov is too busy tending to farm animals to go beast mode in the Octagon.

UFC President Dana White appears keen on squeezing one more fight out of Nurmagomedov; however, "The Eagle" seems intent on retiring.

"You can fight until you're 40 but there should be a goal," Nurmagomedov told a group of young people, via TACC (h/t RT Sport). "I had a goal to reach the summit and I got there. Further, I have no competitive interest. Next year I will graduate. I'd like to [build on] my thesis, do a masters course, dedicate more time to studying. I've bought sheep, I tend to my farm. I'd like to develop in this field a little. I have the bull calves out to feed, I have cows."

Nurmagomedov (29-0) announced his retirement from mixed martial arts after beating Justin Gaethje via second-round triangle choke at UFC 254.
