Khabib Nurmagomedov and Cain Velasquez have been training together for more than a decade. Back when Khabib first joined the American Kickboxing Academy, Cain was the top fighter in the gym being the heavyweight champion in the UFC. Since then the man has been known to be a beast inside the octagon and an angel outside it.
While talking to TMZ, Khabib openly expressed his views on the entire fiasco that Cain is caught up in. To put it shortly, Cain found out that the son of the woman who ran the daycare where Cain’s child went to, Harry Eugene Goularte aged 43 had allegedly repeatedly sexually-abused family member of Cain’s . The former UFC Heavyweight Champ then went on a rampage chasing down a car that carried the alleged abuser along with his step-father and mother.
The chase went on for about 10 miles at which point Cain allegedly rammed into the target’s car, after which he shot at the alleged abuser through the window, missed, and hit the stepfather instead. Though the injuries caused to him were non-life-threatening, it was enough to rack up an attempted first-degree murder charge against Cain in California.

Despite the public support for Cain being high, with many saying it was the justifiable thing to do as a father, he has been denied bail twice. Khabib while talking to TMZ, revealed that he wants to meet his training partner who is currently incarcerated and is unclear about the law in the US. Khabib stated that any man who respects himself and loves his family would have gone down the same path as Cain saying, “Nobody’s gonna think about law or anything when it comes to protecting family. If animals protect their family of course humans will protect their family”
Nurmagomedov then mentioned how he felt the entire ordeal was unfair, alluding to the fact that Cain being in prison while the alleged abuser runs free is not justice. He said, “It always has to be fair, this is not fair, He(Cain) sits in jail and the other guy is outside” asking for the abuser to be imprisoned too the former champion continued, “He is more dangerous for people than Cain Velasquez.
Khabib then attested to the character of Cain saying in the ten years he’s known him and his family, the heavyweight has been nothing but a gentleman in his social interactions. He ended by saying, “Cain is dangerous to only one guy, the other guy can be a threat to anybody”
