UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has called Dana White out and demanded the promotion’s president book Barcelona’s 100,000 seater Nou Camp stadium for a potential comeback fight.
Nurmagomedov, 32, shocked fans at the back-end of last year after he announced he was retiring from professional mixed martial arts.
Following yet another title defence against fellow lightweight Justin Gaethje, the 32-year-old wrestler called time on his career and has not been in action since.
Despite circulating rumours the Dagestan great could make a comeback later this year, there has been no official announcement regarding a finalised bout.
Whilst seemingly enjoying retirement, ‘The Eagle’ was a special guest at Barcelona’s famous Nou Camp stadium during Tuesday night’s Champions League tie against Paris-Saint Germain.
Following the match which ended 4-1 to Mauricio Pochettino’s men, thanks to a brilliant Kylian Mbappe hat-trick, Nurmagomedov was lucky enough to bag the Frenchman’s signed shirt.
Whilst showing off the star’s worn jersey on Instagram after the match, Nurmagomedov also took the time to call White out over a potential comeback.
During a live streamed video outside of the Nou Camp, the 32-year-old champ revealed how he’d love to book a fight in Catalonia.
The pound-for-pound great, as quoted by Daily Mail, said: “Hey Dana you here? Let’s make fight here 100,000 people, let’s go!”
