Khabib Nurmagomedov celebrates

Last month when Khabib Nurmagomedov injured his rib and was forced out of his TUF 22 finale fight against Tony Ferguson, ‘The Eagle’ also revealed that he may never return to the Octagon.

He made a post on Instagram that included “I’m not sure if I will ever come back.”

On Wednesday’s UFC Tonight it was revealed by Ariel Helwani that Nurmagomedov hasn’t made a decision as to whether or not he will return to MMA.

His management team revealed that the rib injury occurred during a light grappling session, and wasn’t the result of “anything strenuous.”

Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
