UFC’s legendary lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov might have retired from fighting but the Dagestani is still as competitive as ever outside the octagon.
Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team are known to get into friendly competitions. Ali Abdelaziz, the manager of Khabib can never seem to get tired of challenging his champion fighter in challenges. Be it wrestling or a 100-meter dash, Ali wants all the smoke from the former lightweight champion.
A recent upload on the fighter’s Instagram shows the two friends challenging each other in a foot race. Khabib captioned the video, “Be ready boy, I’m coming.” In the video, Ali seems to challenge Khabib to a sprint when he gets called, “chicken legs” by the Dagestani. Javier Mendez, the coach of AKA is notorious for taking out his phone and recording videos of his gym members getting into a hassle.
Unfortunately for the president of Dominance MMA, his devastating defeat to Khabib was completely filmed by Javier Mendez. Watch the entire video on Khabib’s Instagram:
