US President Donald Trump said that he considers Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov the best fighter in the world.
The Russian fighter will hold his next fight with American Justin Gaethje on October 24 as part of the UFC 254 tournament.
“Gaethje will have a great fight against the number one fighter in the rankings regardless of weight categories. Justin has already said that he will knock out Nurmagomedov. This fight will take place right before the US presidential election, but we are going to watch it. I will watch it. I think it will be an incredible fight,” – Trump said.
Nurmagomedov takes the second place in the official rating of the Ultimate fighting championship (UFC) regardless of weight categories, behind the American John Jones.
Nurmagomedov won all of his 28 career fights in mixed martial arts.
