The current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is an extremely dominant fighter and has plenty of admirers of his skill set not just in fans but also in his peers, i.e. the fellow UFC fighters. One such fan of the Russian is the UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker.
Whittaker recently spoke on his own podcast Grange TV that he is a big fan of Nurmagomeov. He also went on to say that he believes the Daegestani’s skill set and endurance is amazing. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m a huge fan of Khabib, I think he’s phenomenal, honestly. I think what he does is crazy. I think his skill set is amazing. I think his cardio and his endurance is ridiculous. I think he’s amazing, I’m a huge fan. What I like about him more than anything is, for one, he’s a straight character, I really admire and respect that. And two, everybody knows what he’s going to do—every single person—and no one can stop him. I think that’s phenomenal.
