Den tidigare UFC-fightern Reza Madadi har skrivit ett svar till Khabib Nurmgaomedov. Anledningen bakom detta är kommentaren som Nurmagomedov fällde angående Khamzat ”Borz” Chimaevs viktmiss i samband med UFC 279.
Reza Madadi: Det viktigaste är att ditt team bryr sig om dig
Den ursprungliga tanken var att Chimaev skulle ställas mot Nate Diaz i samband med UFC 279. ”Borz” missade vikten ordentligt och fick istället möta Kevin Holland. I mitten av september uttalade sig den tidigare lättviktsmästaren om Chimaevs viktmiss. Enligt Nurmagomedov behöver Allstarsfightern fler muslimer kring sig för att för att problemet inte ska upprepas. Via Bloody Elbow.
If you are a Muslim, you should have good people around you – Muslims who can say: ‘Hey, don’t do this. I recently watched the weigh-in of Khamzat Chimaev. I followed what was happening with his weight and looked at his team. There are no Muslims around him and this is very bad. Because if you are a Muslim, you need good, strong people around you. [They] will say.
Den numera pensionerade Nurmagomedov vägde själv in för tungt vid flera tillfällen under sin tid som aktiv utövare.
Nu har Allstars Madadi gett sin syn på saken. Via sitt Instagram-konto riktade den tidigare UFC-fightern ett meddelande till Nurmagomedov. Enligt Madadi – som själv är muslim – finns det betydligt viktigare faktorer än religion när det kommer till vilka människor man bör ha runt omkring sig.
Dear @khabib_nurmagomedov , my muslim brother ❤️🙏🏼
Firstly I would like say I have a huge respect for you as an athlete and for all your achievements in our beloved sport of MMA. I am also very proud of how you represent our religion, belief and God in all your interviews and appearances.
But, I would like to give my point on your opinion on Khamzat not having a muslim team around him and that was supposed to be the reason of him missing the weight. I have to disagree with you on this part.
Not only have Khamzat had muslim friends and teammates such as me around him from day 1, but also from many other religions and backgrounds, The have been people that have been with him from the start, giving him love, sharing blood, sweat and joy and done everything to bring him to where he is now.
Being a muslim doesn’t mean we are perfect and flawless, trust me, I have done many mistakes in my life as many people know, With all due respect, so have you. So mentioning having muslim team will make you perfect, I have to disagree, having a team that cares about you. in good times and bad times, no matter what belief or religion they have is far more important. And that is something Khamzat has.
There are several issues that made Khamzat miss the weight but those reasons stay in the team. But he is still young and he will learn from his mistakes. If a big Champion like you, did learn from your mistake when you missed weight, I have no doubt that our brother Khamzat will do as well. #مهساامينى
