He decided to lay down his gloves in the middle of the Octagon as a tribute to his father who died earlier this year.

Khabib quit the sport with a perfect 29-0 record but there has already been rumours of a possible return.

When speaking about a possible return he named a figure of $100million (£75million) that would make him consider reaching that 30th win.

According to Marca, he said: “If you decide to finish, finish.

“But the most likely thing is that Dana offers me money.

“If, for example, it’s 100 million dollars, it would be hard to make a decision.

“We’ll see what he’s thinking. I think it’s something that will follow me until the end of my life.”

There have been calls for a rematch with Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier, both of whom he has beaten with ease.

When asked about a potential matchup with either of them, Khabib responded: “I’m not interested. I beat them both easily.”
