“Legend” Khabib Nurmagomedov Applauded For Horseriding Ahead Of UFC 294
Right before UFC 294, Khabib posted an Image in his Instagram handle, that showed him mounted on a horse.
For Makhachev vs. Oliviera 2, Khabib Nurmagomedov is more than prepared. Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, trained both Islam Makhachev and Khabib Nurmagomedov when they were little. The 34-year-old is no longer competing, therefore Makhachev needs to establish a solid foundation in the lightweight division.
Nobody has been more supportive of Islam than his close friend, who gave up sports after the death of his father. Charles Oliveira was eventually defeated by the 31-year-old by forcing him to tap out after only five minutes. Back in October at UFC 280, Makhachev inadvertently declared himself the champion. Now that a rematch is planned, it seems like Khabib is just as prepared as the champion himself.
