Nurmagomedov (27-0) is now serving a nine-month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his actions in a post-fight brawl following his UFC 229 victory last October over Conor McGregor, which set a new MMA record for pay-per-view buys at a reported 2.4 million.

"It takes a lot of discipline to become and stay champion. Only a few people have done it and I always said I wanted to retire on my own and not be told to retire". In combat sports, you should retire on top.

"Georges has cemented his legacy as one of the pound-for-pound greatest fighters ever", UFC President Dana White said. "I intend to keep training and practising martial arts for as long as I live and I look forward to watching the new generation of champions carry our sport into the future". At that particular moment I knew that's exactly what I wanted to do. It's weird, it's like I had a vision.

"The career of an athlete is not a straight line". "Everything starts with a dream". After he concluded his opening remarks, the floor was opened up to media, who began by asking about his potential fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The legendary fighter retires after establishing himself as one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. I don't have that same motivation. I don't have the same anger - the same hunger - anymore. "I'm happy I have the discipline to do it". "The UFC has other plans for Khabib, and I wish him the best of luck". Following up, he was asked about his reaction when he received a message from Nurmagomedov asking to wait until November for one final fight.

"I also want to thank each of my opponents".

Tony Romo To Play In 2019 AT&T Byron Nelson Golf Tournament
Tony Romo is a legendary competitor, a member of Trinity Forest, and long-time friend of AT&T and the Salesmanship Club of Dallas. Romo played his first PGA Tour event at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in March 2018, where he finished last.

'We were talking to the UFC and tried to organise the fight with Khabib. His combined reign of 2,237 days as champion [2,204 welterweight, 33 middleweight] is second only to Anderson Silva's 2,457 days as middleweight champion. "It shows I had the guts to come back from an obstacle and I was able to overcome it".

St-Pierre, known as GSP, had previously said that he was frequently bullied throughout his childhood and used that conflict as fuel to dedicate himself to martial arts. "If it would not be for martial arts, I don't know where I would have been ... it saved me".

St-Pierre began his professional career in 2002.

"All of them are incredible athletes who brought out the best in me", he said. St-Pierre on Thursday officially announced his retirement, so there is no way the bout is going to happen.

"I announce my retirement". St-Pierre, a two-division champion, leaves with a record of 26-2-0 and a 13-fight winning streak. You should retire on top. He debuted with the UFC in 2004 and remained in the organization the rest of his career.
