UFC Welterweight prospect, Adlan Amagov, was set to fight Jason High next month at UFC Fight Night 35. Unfortunately, Amagov was injured in training, and forced to withdraw from the bout. Earlier this week rumors were circulating that Amagov was contemplating retirement due to his religious beliefs. Earlier today, Amagov’s team, the Red Fury Fight Team, posted this on their Instagram:
Here is the translation via Google Translate:
With great regret to inform you that should Adlan Amagov retired fighter, any decision must be respected, Praise be to Allah that we have a brother who put in the first place religion, everyone should take a cue from him to each of us was such Iman !
The translation makes it sound like this is not a done deal as of yet, but it certainly seems like a real possibility. If Amagov would retire, he would leave behind a 13-2-1 record, including two wins inside the Octagon. Although unfortunate, if Amagov decides to retire due to his beliefs, it is ultimately his decision and should be respected.
We will keep you updated if any further information comes out, or if this information is confirmed by the UFC.
