Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Justin Gaethje in a second-round submission during UFC 254, Saturday. Following the fight, the unbeaten champion announced his retirement citing the loss of his father.

“This is my last fight, there’s no way I’m going to be back without my father,” he told the audience. Nurmagomedov’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, passed away earlier this year after a battle with COVID-19.
While Gaethje proved a respectable opponent, firing off powerful leg kicks and staying aggressive throughout, it was Nurmagomedov who locked the challenger in a triangle choke in the 2nd round, rendering Gaethje unconscious, to secure the victory.
Nurmagomedov, head in his hands, collapsed in the center of the octagon following the fight.
“I promised her, this was gonna be my last fight,” Nurmagomedov said, recalling a conversation with his mother earlier this year. “If I give my word, I have to follow this.”
Gaethje regained consciousness quickly, afterward. “I know he made his father so proud,” he said. Gaethje began the day on a four-fight winning streak.
Nurmagomedov is now tied with BJ Penn and Benson Henderson with the most title defenses in UFC lightweight history. If this truly is his last fight, he will end his career 29-0.

Biodegradable Urns for a Sustainable Farewell Which Honors Nature’s Cycle
The world is increasingly becoming more conscious of environmental impact over time. And from the metal straws of our drinks to the paper tote bags we carry, almost all essentials of daily life are moving towards sustainability. Now, even our final farewells are evolving. Biodegradable urns, offered by Premium Urns, an Australian-owned and operated company with over 12 years of experience, are designed to provide a more eco-friendly and meaningful way to say goodbye to our loved ones.
Biodegradable Urns for Various Purposes
Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:
- Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
- Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
- Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.
Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns
Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:
- Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
- Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
- Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
- Specialized Water Urns: If you plan a sea burial, be sure to select from the ‘Water’ cremation urns specifically designed for this purpose. These urns are engineered to sink slowly, allowing for a dignified and eco-conscious release.
