Khabib recently signed a new and profitable deal with the UFC, and in regards to that deal, Khabib would on the 7th of September be returning to contend with the UFC interim champion, Dustin Poirier.
Khabib while speaking on his YouTube official channel, revealed his already commenced trainings in preparation for this very fight. In addition, he spoke about having “lots of fights” he is yet to perform, and that the incidence that involved his victory over McGregor on the October 6th match, isn’t over.
“About a month in the mountains, then two months in AKA, and about 15 days in Abu Dhabi to acclimate,” Khabib began, outlining his UFC 242 training camp. “94 days, I think that is enough to bring myself in optimal shape.”
“We have not finished yet what was on October 6. We still have a lot of fights, so we plan to write more history and show that we are here. Being high in the mountains, we can reach certain heights and successes.”
Nurmagomedov also spoke about his recent deal with UFC. Ali Abdelaziz, Khabib’s manager recently spoke about the deal as the richest deal ever in the UFC, but Khabib didn’t want to take the deal to such extreme.
“Frankly speaking, I would not like to disclose the terms of the contract,” Khabib said. “They are very good and most importantly, the brothers were extended, one was signed, the deadline was removed, we made some concessions, they went to some and came to some common denominator that is beneficial to all.
“If I say it is one of the best, it will somehow be wrong. I guess you can put it in the top three, some of the best conditions, contracts and agreements that have ever been concluded with the UFC.”
