Khabib Nurmagomedov put an end to the rumours about his future in UFC by confirming this week that he is retired.
However, the Russian is already planning for his future at the top level of MMA as he could return as a coach.
This is according to Luke Rockhold, who spoke to TMZ about Khabib becoming his trainer.
“He’s assuming this coaching role now, he wants to be a big part of my comeback,” Rockhold said.
Khabib and Rockhold have been working together for years and could team up for the American’s return to the sport, having not fought officially since July of 2019.
