Shamil Zavurov revealed the truth about Khabib Nurmagomedov's decision

Information about the departure of Khabib Nurmagomedov from the MMA industry is greatly exaggerated, claims a close friend of the former UFC lightweight champion, Shamil Zavurov.

According to the league president Eagle FC, the undefeated Russian fighter decided to limit his participation in the team’s activities in order to devote more time to his family.

“Khabib gathered the guys and explained to them that last year he was only at home for two or three months and wants to devote more time to his family, and so that no one is offended, he will no longer go to training camps and competitions,” Zavurov said in an interview with the channel “Ushatayka”. “We have a team, nothing has changed – we will help each other. It’s just that Khabib will stop riding with them and will not be around all the time. Where will he go? He has his own school here, a training base in the mountains has just opened, all his brothers and nephews perform. Of course, he won’t devote as much time as before, but it’s simply impossible for him to leave like that, I think so ”

At the same time, Nurmagomedov remains the head of the Eagle FC league and will continue to engage in promotional activities, albeit to a lesser extent.

“We will continue to move Eagle FC. We understand that if Khabib leaves, the organization will fall apart tomorrow. She relies on Khabib. But if Eagle FC takes his time, we’ll have to free him up a bit. For now, we have a plan. Eagle FC we will move”

Zavurov also answered the question of whether Nurmagomedov will attend the fight between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski, who will head the UFC 284 tournament in Perth on February 11.

“I don’t know yet, but I think that the guys will not be offended if Khabib has free time and he goes to support someone”
