Justin Gaethje addresses UFC 254 decline to Khabib: ‘He just created his father so proud’
There was minimal negativity between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje in the lead-up to Saturday’s UFC 254 on Battle Island. There was none pursuing the fight possibly.
Right after Khabib submitted Gaethje in the 2nd spherical, he knelt down in the center of the Octagon and began sobbing, presumably about the reduction of his father about the summer.
When Gaethje awoke from remaining choked out, he joined Khabib in the middle of the Octagon, kneeled down, and gave him a hub.
In his submit-battle remarks with the UFC’s Megan Olive, Gaethje reported that he merely informed Khabib that his father would be so very pleased of him.
Listen in as Gaethje breaks down his reduction to Khabib and the rapport amongst them.

Was Dana White correct? Is Khabib now the best pound for pound fighter?
