Khabib Nurmagomedov stretched his undefeated record to 29-0 this past Saturday when he submitted Justin Gaethje to retain the lightweight championship at UFC 254. Afterward, Nurmagomedov, who’s been heavily affected by the death of his father earlier this year, made a surprising retirement announcement, one that feels definitive as compared to other MMA retirements.

With that in mind, the latest edition of Triple Take asks one question: Where does Khabib rank on the all-time list of greatest fighters? MMA Junkie’s Farah Hannoun, Simon Head and Simon Samano weigh in.
