When Khabib Nurmagomedov pulled out of his TUF 22 finale bout against Tony Ferguson due to a rib injury ‘The Eagle’ revealed that he may never return to the Octagon.

It has been 3 injuries in a row for Nurmagomedov, who hasn’t fought since he defeated Rafael Dos Anjos back in April of 2014.

On UFC Tonight Ariel Helwani revealed that Nurmagomedov had spoken with his father, who is also his trainer, and decided against retiring.
