Khabib’s cousin’s threat to Ilia Topuria

After watching Ilia Topuria snatch the championship belt from Volkanovski with a masterful knockout, many suggested taking on El Matador. The last of them was Usman Nurmagomedov, who posted a story on his Instagram about a bullfighter who was caught by a bull.

In addition to the photo, a text stood out that read: “For every matador there is a bull. Umar doesn’t need to gain weight, he has a brother who will break your ass.. A message that was undoubtedly addressed to Ilia Topuria and also referred to his brother Umar Nurmagomedov, ranked thirteenth in the bantamweight division.

El Matador is clear about his plans

Despite the threat received, which Ilia Topuria will certainly have heard, Fighting Khabib’s cousin is not part of El Matador’s plans. Firstly, because although he has a great track record in MMA, he is not UFC ranked. Therefore, you would have absolutely nothing to gain.

So everything points to that Ilia Topuria’s next rival will be Max Holloway. Something that seems clearer every time Volkanovski has confessed that he will take a break to prepare for his next fight. A fight that will last for many months because he wants to distance himself in order to come back stronger. And his return is for the revenge he deserves for the belt.
