Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson MISSES UFC 254 and Khabib historic win over Justin Gaethje… to go training at gym

DWAYNE 'The Rock' Johnson is so dedicated to his training regime he sacrificed watching Khabib Nurmagomedov's historic win.

The undefeated lightweight king called time on his UFC career last night after his submission win over Justin Gaethje.

Nurmagomedov forced Gaethje to submit following a triangle choke in the second round in a brutal display on Fight Island.

But WWE legend Johnson, 48, missed all the action in order to work on those pecks.

He tweeted: "Gotta crush this training session now but Ufc 254 just started. 2pm fights threw me off dammit

“Best of luck to all the fighters and put on a great show! Training comes first.. checking my phone for updates.”

And he missed a cracker as Khabib cemented his reputation as one of the world's best.

After the emotional win, the 29-0 superstar said: “Today, I want to say this is my last fight.

“When UFC called me about Justin, I spoke with my mother and I said I wouldn't fight without father.

“And if I give my word, then I must follow it. UFC must make me No1 pound for pound fighter in the world, because I deserve it.

“I want to say thank you to Lorenzo and Dana.

“All this UFC team, everybody, they made a great show.

“Thank you to Justin, thank you brother. I know how you take care of your people.

"One day something will happen for you, you never know what is going to happen tomorrow.

“Today is my last fight here in the UFC."

Johnson once revealed how he considered pursuing a career in the Octagon but decided against it to keep his 'jaw intact.'

He told the UFC Unfiltered podcast: "There was a time there where I thought, 'Man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do?'

"I was relatively still young; I think I was 34. I thought, 'Oh, well maybe UFC. Maybe I should do something like that.'"
