Khabib Nurmagomedov has never bled inside the octagon
Khabib has never bled inside the octagon, and stated that he doesn’t remember the last time he faced adversity inside the octagon.
“I train hard, I do everything I can to ensure that my fighting style causes maximum damage to my opponents, meaning that by inflicting pain, I can save myself.” Khabib continued, “I won’t be the first person to ever bleed. I try not to react on everything my opponent say. The most important thing is to be ready when the cage closes. We can arrange it if he wants, but I don’t want to bleed.” Khabib said.
Earlier, Justin Gaethje had said that he knows Khabib will bleed inside the octagon come UFC 254. “I have really really good belief that he’s gonna have a really hard time putting me on the fence. I know I am gonna see his blood. I want him to see his blood and see his reaction.” Gaethje continued, “I don’t think he is as crazy as me. I think he is crazy, he likes competition. His style of fighting is not something where you are looking for blood. I guess that’s never been a factor for him.” Gaethje said.
