Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov is locked in to face former two-division title-holder Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor. It is the most awaited biggest fight in the UFC history, and it was finally announced!
The massive super fight will take place at UFC 229 T-Mobile Arena on October 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be a live pay-per-view fight card.
Khabib’s Recent Controversy
The question ‘Why Khabib is losing some fans?’ has been circulating on the Internet in the wake of the video he posted on his Instagram story. Just a few months ago, a controversy rolled around the UFC world about McGregor’s attacking a bus where he threw a dolly at the fighters’ bus containing Nurmagomedov.
After posting a video of his cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov, paying homeless people to do push-ups in public while laughing, Khabib’s fans appeared that some are quite on the side of Conor McGregor.
The videos are no longer on his Instagram story, but you can see them in the tweet embedded here.
Despite the controversy, this fan made sure that his fingers were crossed so Khabib would accept his slap boxing challenge. Taking to Instagram, Khabib Nurmagomedov has now decided to share a video of him fulfilling his fan’s request.
Having the opportunity to meet and see the person you look up to in person is the definition of “fangirl/fanboy goals”, indeed. I wonder what did Javier felt during his slap boxing match with Khabib, though?
