The champion of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) in a lightweight, Khabib Nurmagomedov, remained the leader in the ranking of athletes of the promotion, regardless of the weight category. This is reported on the website of the organization.
The Russian remained at the head of the list, despite the announcement of the end of his sports career. In second place is the American John Jones. The third position is occupied by his compatriot Kamaru Usman.
Nurmagomedov announced his decision to leave MMA immediately after defeating American Justin Gaethje in the fall of 2020. He once again defended the UFC lightweight belt and took his 29th career win.
