Not in Hall of Fame

Last night, at UFC 272, the UFC announced that Khabib Nurmagomedov will be inducted this July into their Hall of Fame.

From Dagestan, Russia, Nurmagomedov made his Mixed Martial Arts debut in 2008, and retired last year, having never lost in 29 contests.  Considered one of the best pound-for-pound fighters ever, Nurmagomedov made his first appearance in 2012, finally winning the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 223 by defeating Al Iaquinta for the vacant title.

Nurmagomedov then defended his title against Conor McGregor, in one of the most anticipated fights of all-time.  The champion defended his tile with a fourth round submission, with the pay-per-view drawing a record 2.4 million buys.  

Following his win over McGregor, Nurmagomedov successfully defended the title against interim champion, Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.  His last match was another title defense beating Justin Gaethje.

We here at would like to congratulate Khabib Nurmagomedov for his impending induction
