Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from MMA with a perfect record of 29-0 to his name. The former UFC Champion is all set to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame for his iconic career and while the Hall of Fame induction is just around the corner, there is one fighter who would probably not agree about the undefeated record of Khabib: Nate Diaz.
Sometime back, Nate Diaz had Tweeted out saying that Khabib is 29-1 and not 29-0. The tweet was in light of an incident that happened back in 2015 during World Series of Fighting (WSOF) event where Nate Diaz was supporting his teammate Jake Shields and Khabib was supporting Abubakar Nurmagomedov.
“Khabib I already slapped him in his face, I already told you guys. I don’t need to fight him anyways because I already got a victory over him, so it’s like he’s going to hide out and play champ and act like a good guy, mister humble fuck**g Khabib. I’m not buying that shit. I don’t need to sit around here and chase nobody. Anybody need to do any chasing, they need to come this way. I already slapped the guy on the street and that mother*****r didn’t do shit. And then he tried to roll up with his boys and I slapped all the mother*****s too. Pus***s,” Diaz said during one of his interviews with ESPN recalling the incident.
Interestingly, Dana White had noted that that he tried to book a fight between Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov only to see Nate refuse it.
Nate currently holds a record of 20-13 to his name and last fought against Leon Edwards back in 2021 where he suffered a unanimous decision loss. Prior to this, he had also suffered a loss to Jorge Masvidal due to Doctor’s Stoppage.
