The UFC lightweight champion further legitimized his reign and became the undisputed UFC lightweight champion by defeating and skillfully submitting the UFC interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier. However, even after being undefeated in over 28 professional MMA fights and more than 11 fights in the UFC, Nurmagomedov is unhappy by the fact that he is not ranked number 1 in the pound for pound rankings.

It should be noted that Nurmagomedov is currently ranked second in the pound for pound rankings list only behind the UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Nurmagomedov told the reporters during the UFC 242 post event press conference that he wants his due respect and wants to be ranked at the top of the UFC’s official pound for pound rankings list. Here’s what he had to say:

You know what’s interesting in this sport, even if you’re 28-0, 12-0 in the UFC, you’re one of the biggest stars, you smash everybody, people are going to talk about you ‘have to fight him, you have to fight with him, you have to fight with him’ — give me just respect, put me on No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter next week because I think I deserve this. Because I dominate with all my opponents. I’m undefeated. I think I deserve some respect.
