Khabib Nurmagomedov is a Russian professional mixed martial artist.
Nurmagomedov remains undefeated as a professional.
The last fight of Khabib Nurmagomedov took place on September 7, 2019 against
Nurmagomedov won by submission (rear naked choke).
Khabib is the second of three children, he has an older brother and a younger sister.
Nurmagomedov began wrestling from an early age: he started at the age of eight under the tutelage of his father, a senior coach for the combat sambo, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.
Khabib's training as a child included wrestling a bear.
In the USA he trains in the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) under the tutelage of Javier Mendez.
During promotions and after fights he wears a papakha hat.
Nurmagomedov is very popular in his homeland. His fight with Conor McGregor was broadcast in the capital of Dagestan in the cinema "October".
He is a fan of Anzhi Makhachkala (Russia) and Real Madrid (Spain) football clubs.
In 2016, he co-founded his own team, "Eagles MMA Team".

I'm here to ruin Ali's day, I'm here to ruin Dana White's day, I'm here to ruin Daniel Cormier's day, I'm here to ruin Javier Mendes' day, I'm here to ruin Khabib Nurmagomedov's day. F--- all those guys. They have already got [a plan]. I don't know what their plan is, but they said they have a plan ahead and I'm going to f--- it up.
Justin «The Highlight» Gaethje
Justin Gaethje is a American professional mixed martial artist.
The last fight of Justin Gaethje took place on May 9, 2020 against
Gaethje won by technical knockout (TKO).
Before the fight, everybody says "now it will be a good challenge", what are they going to say after I smashed him.
Nurmagomedov and Gaethje are worthy opponents.
It is difficult to predict which of the fighters will win.
Nevertheless, I think that Khabib Nurmagomedov will win by submission.
