Anthony Pettis isnt sure that Khabib Nurmagomedov may be the lightweight GOAT as much have a tendency to think.

Following Nurmagomedovs submission make an impression on Justin Gaethje to guard his belt for the 3rd time, he announced his retirement from MMA. He retired at 29-0 and was inducted in to the Hall of Fame this season but Pettis doesnt think The Eagle may be the 155lbs GOAT as much think.

You understand, I believe I moved right down to 45, I fought at 70 I fought everywhere, Pettis thought to LowKick MMA. Its hard to state Khabib (Nurmagomedov) because he didnt fight everybody. He won the planet title fighting Al Iaquinta.

Al Iaquinta wasnt even ranked at that time, so, you understand, Pettis continued. And he fought the right guys from then on and he retired, so its hard to state hes the GOAT. Hes one of the greatest. But like, guys like B.J. Penn, you understand like thats a man for me personally that, you understand, if he wouldnt have returned and lost a few fights, most of us would be discussing B.J. because the GOAT, you understand, among the first.

Anthony Pettis can be not the initial lightweight to possess similar comments as much have already been critical of who Nurmagomedov fought early in his UFC tenure. However, the Dagestani fighter did retire undefeated which few fighters can say.

For Pettis, hes also a former UFC lightweight champion and happens to be competing in the PFL lightweight division. Hes set to handle Stevie Ray in the semifinals after losing by submission to Ray in the next fight of the standard season.

Should he see through Ray and in addition win the PFL lightweight finals, it could help cement his legacy as he’d be considered a UFC and PFL champion.

What can you label of Anthony Pettis thinking Khabib Nurmagomedov isnt the GOAT?
