It is often said that you can play literally any sport in the world. However, you can never actually play combat sports. Combat sports such as Boxing, MMA, Muay Thai, etc are too dangerous to be played for fun and instead take years of practice and mastering, otherwise, even a slight mistake can prove to be deadly. Quite recently a talented young Boxer from Russia Maxim Dadashaev, there have also been some other deaths as well. The UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has now stated that this has led him to contemplate the nature of fighting itself.
Nurmagomedov in a recent Instagram post talked about such deaths in Boxing and other combat sports. He revealed that he has begun to hate the sport and the very nature of fighting. Here’s what he had to say:
This case proves once again that sport is not the most important thing. There are things that are much more important. Every time I see or hear such news, I begin to hate this sport in which we beat each other. Everything is temporary, fame, money, titles, and our whole life, we all leave this world, no one will remain. It is worth thinking. Patience to all relatives and friends of Maxim. Do good and may the Most High reward us for our deeds and deeds in the next life, and forgive us our sins.
Below is Nurmagomedov’s original post in Russian:

Этот случай нам ещё раз доказывает, что спорт это не самое главное, есть вещи куда важнее. Каждый раз когда я вижу или слышу такие новости я начинаю ненавидеть этот спорт, в котором мы друг друга бьем. Все временно, слава, деньги, титулы, и вся наша жизнь, мы все уйдём с этого мира, никто не останется. Стоит задуматься. Терпения всем родным и близким Максима. Творите добро и пусть Всевышний вознаградит нас за наши дела и поступки в следующей жизни, и простит нам наши грехи.
