Khabib Nurmagomedov Chokes Out Justin Gaethje, Retires After UFC 254

Khabib Nurmagomedov just RETIRED FROM MMA — after choking out Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.

Wow.

Khabib essentially said he doesn’t want to continue in the sport without his father, who passed away earlier this year after a bout with COVID-19

Gaethje proved dangerous — throwing bombs at the lightweight champ — but ultimately, Khabib’s ground game proved too strong … and he caught Justin in a triangle choke in the 2nd round.

Afterward, Khabib broke down in the octagon sobbing … overcome with emotion in his first fight since the passing of his father.

Justin and Khabib embraced after the fight — nothing but respect between these two.

“God give me everything,” Khabib said in the post fight interview … “This is my last fight. Ain’t no way I come here without my father.”

Khabib ends his career 29-0 — defeating superstars like Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Gaethje and more.
