Having completed his professional career two years ago, former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov does not plan to weigh more than 93 kilograms in the next ten years.
“It is very important to control yourself,” Nurmagomedov said. “When I step on the scale and see that I have gained more than a kilogram, I tell myself – it’s time to lose weight. I am in control, I am at 93 kilos, and I want to be at that weight for the next ten years. This is my goal – not to be heavier than 93 kilograms in the next ten years.
“Keeping less is very difficult. 88-89 kilos are constant diets, no sugar, fast carbs, and I need this because I meet a lot of people, I train a lot, and I need to replenish energy quickly. When there are a lot of people around, they take energy from you, so a little sugar and soda won’t hurt. Keeping a strict diet with such a lifestyle is a lot of stress. ”
Last year, 34-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov became one of the most successful coaches in mixed martial arts, winning the UFC and Bellator lightweight titles with Islam Makhachev and Usman Nurmagomedov.
