I only know one thing I expect from the UFC, said Habib Nurmagomedov minutes after his victory over Justin Getje in UFC 254. You should bet me a pound a pound because I deserve it.

Yeah, that’s it.

And although the undefeated lightweight champion wins on the 24th immediately after his second lap. October to Ostrov Boyev announced his resignation, the UFC held the Nurmagomedova rating and raised it to first place at his request.

ESPN’s men’s rating, on the other hand, was ahead by £/lb. Dagestani, 32, has been number one for months. That gives you a 29-0 record full of dominant victories.

Yet Nurmagomedov ended up in the ESPN Top 10: It is now the unanimous choice of our four voters.

The next time the quote is updated, there will probably be a tremor at the top of the mountain, since Nurmagomedov does not seem to be the kind of person who announces his resignation just to negotiate. Less than four months after the death of his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov he quit the sport and promised his mother that the fight in Getha would be his last. And if I give my word, Nurmagomedov said, I must keep it.

It’s real, his old friend and training partner Daniel Cormier said. Habib doesn’t lie. Habib’s not playing, I’m gone and I’m coming back.

Consider it a unanimous farewell to Habib Nurmagomedov, who has taken the top position in the ESPN rankings.

The biggest change in these ratings? He’s the one with the punch: He made his debut in Francis Ngannu’s ten-man heavyweight package, the last four gusts of which were eliminated in 45 seconds (Curtis Blades), 26 seconds (Cain Velasquez), 71 seconds (Junior Dos Santos) and 20 seconds (Giirzinho Rosenstruik). His next fight should be the challenge of the champion Stip Miocic.

In the women’s classification Jessica Andrade, who finished 17th in the race, is on the rise. In October, TKO fighter Kathleen Chukagian made her debut in the first round, up the career ladder.
