Dana White spoke about a number of things he wants to see at UFC 272’s post-fight press conference Khabib Nurmagomedov bad mood even though he’s in the ‘hall of fame‘ tonight.

Khabib had a tough road to the top, but also still holds the record for the UFC’s longest-reigning lightweight champion. Despite his health issues in the early days of his career, he worked his way through the division and stayed at the top. Khabib won the vacant championship by defeat Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 and went on to record three dominant title defenses against Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s teammate Tagir Ulanbekov was punched Tim Eliot in the 272 preliminary rounds which was not only the loss of Tagir but also the first loss Khabib faced as a coach. Dana White suggests this may have been the reason behind Khabib’s excitement.

The judges of the fight gave it a little different than expected, with fans saying UFC clearly needs better judges. Coach Khabib secured a win in the Main Event of the Early Prelims as Umar Nurmagomedov defeated Brian Kelleher in a dominant first round win. That didn’t help much as Khabib was still pissed, probably because of his poor judgment.

Khabib has always been a man of legacy who wanted to be the best of the best and be crowned as the pound-for-pound fighter in the world. That dream came true as he retired as the division’s longest-reigning champion, defending his belt against the best. Khabib’s father would have been proud of him to see him leave the legacy he (his father) dreamed of.

“I get along very well with Dana. All my life when I was a fighter. I know a lot of fighters have a problem with him and it’s all because of the money. When I say in an interview or to my friends I’m here to fight, not for money. I’m here to fight for my legacy. A lot of people don’t understand me. you misunderstand me Now I understand why I have a good relationship with Dana because I don’t fight for money. For this reason. I’ve never asked Dana or UFC about money-related things. My manager took care of them.”

Khabib speaks about never having any issues with the UFC president as he never cared about the money he made, says the manager took care of it while he focused on the next opponent. All in all, the Dagestani was and is undoubtedly one of the greatest of all time.
