The most awaited and biggest fight in the UFC history was announced earlier this week. It will take place at UFC 229 T-Mobile Arena on October 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Octagon is set for the lightweight championship bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. Perhaps this would be the biggest bout on the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s calendar for 2018.
This will be one of the biggest money fights in the sport’s history. The fight is only two months away and Khabib just jeopardized himself over a video he uploaded on his Instagram story.
He Might Lose Some Fans over This Video
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. Now, Khabib puts himself in a hot water after posting a video of his cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov, paying homeless people to do push-ups in public while laughing.
In the video below, it started with a homeless man finishing up a set of push-ups on the street. Khabib can be heard laughing in the background as the old man completes the task and gets back to his feet.
Khabib tagged his cousin, Abubakar, in his Instagram story. As Khabib continued recording and laughing endlessly, Abubakar offered some cash to the homeless man.
After handing the cash to the homeless man, he bowed to Abubakar, who extended his arm for a handshake just as the clip ends.
Not Just One Homeless Man but Two
In the second clip, it showed another homeless man doing push-ups while Abubakar watched over. Khabib couldn’t help himself but laugh as he records the video.
Although the videos are no longer on his Instagram story, you can see them in the tweet embedded below:
