UFC Hall of Famer, BJ Penn, isn’t holding back any punches and his next victim is former UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. Khabib is regarded by many as the greatest lightweight in UFC history, but Penn and many others strongly disagree. Khabib went undefeated with a record of 29-0 in MMA (13-0 in the UFC).
Penn aired out his grievances via the following Instagram post:
Khabib has been on his high horse lately making comments about the greatest featherweight of all time, Jose Aldo, ring card girls, Conor McGregor, and Mike Tyson, so it doesn’t come as a complete shock that people are now going to come for Khabib.
Khabib referenced how Aldo lost to Petr Yan. MMAMania further expanded on Khabib’s comments,
“Khabib called Aldo and fighters like him, “businessmen” who “come out to make money.” “There’s no way Aldo is having a second peak,” Khabib declared. “You can try to prove it all you want, but I’ve been through this. I know better than you. You’re a journalist, and I’m a fighter.”
The greatest featherweight of all time who went undefeated for 11 years responded with his own set of harsh words.
Khabib has been drinking his own Kool-Aid lately. Sometimes, less is more. In other words, stop talking and ride off into the sunset if you’re not throwing fists anymore.
