Islam Makhachev claims Khabib Nurmagomedov could “easily” come back and defeat current UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland.
Islam Makhachev: “Today I was asked: ‘Can Khabib come back and beat Sean Strickland in a championship fight?’. I can confidently answer that he can easily do it. It’s been three years since Khabib retired, but he never misses a training session. I can say without doubt, if he wants to, it’ll be no effort to him.”
Do you agree with this assessment from Islam Makhachev?
