It wasn’t secret heading into UFC on 254 that there used to be no animosity between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje. Despite every little thing, the 2 men half the identical manager and know each different on a fairly private stage.
Successfully, it appears Nurmagomedov took this into legend all the intention by intention of his second-round submission decide over Gaethje on this past Saturday’s necessary match.
On Monday, Khabib’s teammate and buddy, Daniel Cormier, shared a heck of a legend on his “DC and Helwani” prove. In accordance to DC, Khabib used to be correctly conscious about two issues: Gaethje stated all week that he wouldn’t faucet and that Gaethje’s fogeys would be sitting cageside for his or her son’s huge second.
So with that in thoughts, hear to this (by job of Twitter):
“He goes, ‘I didn’t desire to damage him in front of his fogeys, so I stated I’m going to head and attach him in a triangle. And if he goes to sleep, he goes to sleep, you wake up, you’re bright.’ Here’s precisely what he told me. That’s crazy, suitable? He did now not desire to damage Justin in front of his fogeys. To be chuffed ample to imagine this within the second, that’s crazy. He didn’t desire to shatter his arm. For that reason of if Justin’s now not going to faucet, or now not it is a must to shatter it. And he did now not desire to attain that to Justin in front of his mom and pa.”
How wonderful is that?
