Nurmagomedov’s recent tweets have been jibes at Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor. However, Khabib’s latest Instagram post and other some social media posts have been in solidarity and support of a billionaire friend who has recently been arrested.
The indomitable Dagestani is still undefeated in his MMA career with a record of 25-0. He is also currently on a nine fight winning streak inside the octagon. He is a black belt in Judo and is also a two time world Combat Sport champion and a highly phenomenal freestyle wrestler. His undefeated streak of twenty five wins, is currently one of the longest undefeated streaks in MMA.
UFC 219 saw Khabib Nurmagomedov, manhandle and maul top lightweight contender and sensational striker, Edson Barboza. Such was the Russian’s dominance that he quite literally took away Barboza’s soul and left him in a pool of his own blood. He is now scheduled to fight the UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in his upcoming bout at UFC 223. They both will be competing for the undisputed UFC lightweight title and it is widely believed that the current UFC lightweight champion, Conor “The Notorious” McGregor will soon be stripped of the title due to a lack of title defences and activity.
It was reported by kommersant.ru, co-owner of the Suma group Ziyavudin Magomedov and several other members have been detained for 48 hours. The individuals were detained under the article “fraud committed by an organised group or in a particularly large amount or resulting in the deprivation of the citizen’s right to a dwelling.” Magomedov has often been pictured alongside the undefeated Russian fighter and is considered to be his close friend.
Magomedov, who has been arrested for having alleged connections to organised crime, is a Russian billionaire. However, he has now received support from his friend Nurmagomedov. “The Eagle” posted Magomedov’s picture on his Instagram account and asked him to have patience.
