Khabib wishes team captain DC best of luck for UFC 230

The bromance between UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and UFC Double champion Daniel Cormier is no secret. The AKA products have always been open about the same. The latest chapter in the saga came last day in the form of Nurmagomedov’s wish for Cormier.

Khabib Nurmagomedov had some warm words for Daniel Cormier

As you would probably know by now, Daniel Cormier will defend his Heavyweight championship against Derrick Lewis this weekend at UFC 230. This will be the first title defence for Cormier after winning the title from Stipe Miocic a few months back.

Nurmagomedov wished Cormier by posting a picture on Instagram. He also noted that Cormier is the ‘real captain’ of AKA. You can see the post from Nurmagomedov below.

“Let’s go @dc_mma. I know you for a long time, you are the real captain of our #akateam. You the #CHAMP inside the cage and outside the cage. #andstill #ufc230 #ufcNY”

The fight between Cormier and Lewis will be the main event of UFC 230. The event is set to take place tomorrow at Madison Square Garden in New York and will also feature names like Chris Weidman, Ronaldo Souza, Jared Cannonier, David Branch, Derek Brunson and Israel Adesanya among others.
