KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV has jokingly suggested he wants to become a footballer after retiring from the UFC.

The Russian, 32, announced he was hanging up his gloves after his 29th-straight MMA victory in October, which came via second-round stoppage against Justin Gaethje.

And now, after reinforcing his intention to retire when attending UFC 257, Khabib has taken to social media to offer his services as a footballer.

Speaking on Instagram, he said: “Preparing for my football debut.

“I’m free agent, and ready to accept offers.”

UFC 257 saw Conor McGregor beaten in stunning fashion by Dustin Poirier after being hit with a barrage of punches in the second round.

Khabib then added insult to injury by slamming the Irishman’s preparation.

He wrote: “This is what happens, when you change your team, leave the sparring partners who made you a champion and sparring with little kids, far away from reality.”

McGregor was then asked about his rival’s comments at his post-fight press conference.

And the two-weight world champion said: “My team has been the team since day one. I’ve not changed any team.

“It is what it is, respect the athlete – and that’s the character of the man behind the mask.

“Whatever. What does he want to do? Does he want to come back or not?”
