Khabib Nurmagomedov On UFC 249: ‘No Comment’
Reigning UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov issued a short and sweet message after the conclusion of the UFC 249 main event.
UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov watched as Justin Gaethje claimed the interim title to his crown at UFC 249 Saturday night.
Gaethje dominated Tony Ferguson – the person Nurmagomedov was scheduled to meet – to win the belt in Jacksonville, Florida.
And just like the rest of the world, Nurmagomedov was watching.
Shortly after the bout ended, he posted on Twitter a simple message.
“No comment,” Nurmagomedov wrote.
