One of the things that has been said about Nurmagomedov before is his weigh-in controversy. During one of his fights, an official asked him to step down from the scale even though the bar was still rising upwards.
Although Kultmed said that he would provide four reasons, he went on to list five points instead. Among these was the caliber of opponents ‘The Eagle’ faced in his title fights. He noted that two of Numagomedov’s four title wins were against opponents who hadn’t fought in quite a while.
Many people have strong feelings about the suggestion that Khabib Nurmagomedov should be stripped of his belt
Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from the sport with an unblemished 29-0 record in October 2020. While Nurmagomedov’s dominant reign atop the lightweight division is arguably unmatched, ‘The Eagle’ has been accused of being an inactive champion. In his defense, it can be argued that he was one of the most avoided fighters.
A lot of fans agreed with the aforementioned Twitter thread suggesting that Nurmagomedov should have been stripped of his title. @Boulders3030 commented on the post:
