Эссе про хабиба нурмагомедова

Мой любимый спортсмен Хабиб Нурмагомедов. Ниже попробую объяснить, почему считаю именно его лучшим.
    В детстве мальчишек интересовал вопрос, кто сильнее: Брюс Ли, Мухаммед Али или Чак Норрис, также не утихали споры о том какой вид спорта «круче»: бокс, борьба, дзюдо, каратэ, ушу и т.п. В конце прошлого века начали появляться турниры, где представители различных школ единоборств соревновались между собой. Это были бои без правил, весовых категорий и ограничений во времени. За несколько десятилетий ММА набрали большую популярность у зрителей, но появились правила и ограничения, весовые категории и лимит времени. Сегодня можно увидеть множество лиг, промоушнов и чемпионатов по смешанным видам единоборств. Лучшим и самим престижным из них является ЮФС (UFC – ultimate fighting championship). Долгое время Российские спортсмены в ЮФС не выступали, или не добивались успехов, хотя именно советское Самбо, больше остальных единоборств соответствовало духу ММА. Одним из первых от России в ЮФС начал выступать Хабиб Нурмагомедов.
      Хабиб родился в горном селе Республики Дагестан в семье тренера Абдулманапа Нурмагомедова и с юных лет тренировался под наставничеством отца. Нурмагомедов — старший разработал уникальную методику подготовки спортсменов и воспитал целую плеяду чемпионов мира боевых единоборств. По этому показателю Абдулманап Магомедович вошел в книгу рекордов Гиннеса, как подготовивший самое большое количество чемпионов по боевым единоборствам. Дисциплина важнее таланта – вот главный девиз системы воспитания Абдулманапа Нурмагомедова. Она базируется на 5 принципах подготовки бойцов: убеждение, личный пример, поощрение, требование, принуждение – именно в таком порядке. Еще Абдулманап Магомедович требовал от воспитанников хорошо учиться. «Двоечникам нет места на моих тренировках»- говорил тренер ученикам и лично следил за успеваемостью подопечных. Хабиб этому аспекту уделяет не меньше внимания и в каждом интервью делает акцент на этом и, став чемпионом построил школу в своем родном селе.
    Дисциплина, усердие, талант, богатырская сила умноженные на интеллект под чутким руководством отца возымели результат. Хабиб сильнейший боец ММА и первая строчка Р4Р (паунд – фо – паунд) принадлежит Нурмагомедову по праву. Это звание дается лучшим вне зависимости от весовой категории и эксперты единодушно отдают нашему бойцу 1 место, ведь за время выступления в ЮФС Хабиб не только не проиграл ни разу, но только один раунд отдал сопернику. В жизни дружелюбный и приветливый Хабиб преображается, когда выходит в октагон. Доминируя над соперником каждое мгновение схватки, не оставляет оппонентам ни единого шанса. Желание побеждать и быть первым — основа характера чемпиона. «Не люблю проигрывать ни в чем, даже если это будут соревнования по плевкам в длину»- шутит Хабиб.
       Нурмагомедов первый Чемпион ЮФС из России, и его можно назвать первопроходцем этой организации, за ним потянулась плеяда талантливых бойцов из нашей страны, и в этом состоит заслуга Нурмагомедовых: отца – тренера и сына – бойца.
 Во всех аспектах жизни Хабиб является примером для подражания. Грозный на арене, в жизни Хабиб скромный и простой. Миллионы детей мечтают стать такими как Нурмагомедов. Пример «Орла» будет вдохновлять еще не одно поколение детей, а система воспитания чемпионов, разработанная Абдулманапом Магомедовичем подготовит много чемпионов мира.

БИОГРАФИЯ ХАБИБА НУРМАГОМЕДОВА

Хабиб Абдулманапович Нурмагомедов – боец смешанных единоборств родом из Дагестана, получивший среди спортсменов прозвище «Орел». Он выступает в UFC в легком весе.

ДЕТСТВО И ЮНОШЕСКИЕ ГОДЫ Хабиб родился 20 сентября 1988 года в традиционной аварской семье из небольшого дагестанского горного селения Сильди. Практически все местные мужчины были потомственными борцами, не стали исключением и родственники Хабиба. Его отец Абдулманап Нурмагомедов – мастер спорта по вольной борьбе, брат отца – чемпион мира по самбо 1992 года, дядя по материнской линии – титулованный борец-вольник.

Их первым тренером стал отец, который чуть ли не с пеленок готовил из сыновей профессиональных бойцов. С трех лет Хабиб начал осваивать элементарные борцовские элементы, а в пять уже вышел на ковер.

Там у отца появилась возможность набрать собственную группу из молодых талантливых спортсменов, в число которых вошел и Хабиб. До пятнадцати лет он особо не отличался от других мальчишек: ходил в школу, регулярно посещал тренировки, часто дрался с дворовыми ребятами. В какой-то момент Хабиб хотел устроиться охранником, чтобы зарабатывать деньги, но вся семья выступила против. Спорт, говорил его отец, это тоже работа, причем тяжелая, и профессиональный спортсмен не должен думать, как заработать на пропитание, иначе он никогда не дойдет до вершины. Становясь взрослее и сильнее, парень стал выделяться из общей массы, и отец-тренер понял, что его старший сын – уникальный самородок, которому под силу заставить заговорить о себе весь мир. Если до этого Абдулманап Нурмагомедов больше делал ставку на дзюдо и видел сына в будущем чемпионом татами, то тогда он осознал, что Хабиб – потенциальный лидер в смешанных единоборствах, тем более парень и сам больше тяготел к боевому самбо.

СПОРТИВНЫЕ ДОСТИЖЕНИЯ И БОИ В 23 года Нурмагомедов стал самым молодым российским борцом в истории UFC. Американцы сразу же оценили мастерство Хабиба и пригласили перспективного спортсмена в организацию. С этого момента достойный сын аварского народа по прозвищу «Орел» провел на ведущих рингах мира множество боев, закончившихся его безусловной победой. Символом бойца стала чабанская шапка – так он выражает гордость за свой народ и преданность его традициям.

habib nurmagomedov

Биография Нурмагомедова

Хабиб Абдулманапович Нурмагомедов родился 20 сентября 1988 года в дагестанском селе Сильди. По национальности он является аварцем – представителем одного из коренных народов Кавказа. Будущий чемпион с ранних лет увлекался единоборствами, как и множество его близких родственников.

Изначально Хабиба тренировал его отец, Абдулманап Нурмагомедов, который в свое время становился чемпионом Украины по самбо и дзюдо. Стоит отметить, что дядя Хабиба, Нурмагомед Нурмагомедов, в прошлом был чемпионом мира по спортивному самбо.

Также у Нурмагомедова есть немало и других родственников, которые являются довольно известными борцами. Таким образом, все детство мальчика проходило в окружении опытных спортсменов.

Детство и юность

Хабиб приступил к тренировкам в 5-летнем возрасте. Вместе с ним занимался, и его младший брат Абубакар, который в будущем также станет профессиональным спортсменом.

Когда Нурмагомедову было 12 лет, все семейство переехало в Махачкалу. Там его отец продолжил тренировать молодежь. Со временем ему удалось образовать спортивный лагерь, в котором занимались самые талантливые ученики.

В данный период биографии тренером Хабиба стал Магомедов Саидахмед, обучавший его и других подростков вольной борьбе. Помимо борьбы, юноша также овладел основами самбо и дзюдо.

Спорт и профессиональная карьера

На профессиональный ринг Хабиб Нурмагомедов вышел в 20-летнем возрасте. За три года соревнований он показал высокое мастерство, которое помогло ему удостоиться 15 побед и стать чемпионом Российской Федерации, Европы и мира. В ту пору парень выступал в легком весе (до 70 кг).

Демонстрируя прекрасную подготовку и завоевывая все новые и новые титулы, Нурмагомедов обратил на себя внимание американской организации «UFC», которая пригласила его в свои ряды. Благодаря этому имя дагестанца обрело мировую известность.

Нурмагомедов в UFC

Впервые в истории «UFC» на ринг вышел самый молодой боец, которому тогда едва исполнилось 23 года. На удивление всех Хабиб «клал на лопатки» всех своих противников, не проигрывая ни одного поединка. Он одержал верх над такими именитыми соперниками, как Тибау, Таварес и Хили.

За короткий срок, рейтинг непобежденного аварца стремительно вырос. Он оказался в числе ТОП-5 сильнейших бойцов «UFC».

В 2016 г. состоялся нашумевший бой между Нурмагомедовым и Джонсоном. О нем писала вся мировая пресса, выделяя достоинства как одного, так и второго участника. В ходе поединка Хабибу удалось провести болевой прием, который заставил соперника сдаться, признав свое поражение.

Стоит заметить, что накануне данного боя, после взвешивания, россиянин встретился с Конором Макгрегором – лидером «UFC», которого Нурмагомедов попытался спровоцировать. Дошло до того, что между бойцами чуть не завязалась драка. С того времени всем стало ясно, что Хабиб мечтает сразиться с Конором.

В 2018 г. Нурмагомедов встретился на ринге с американцем Элом Яквинтой. Обоюдным решением судей дагестанцу удалось одержать очередную важную победу. Интересен факт, что Хабиб является первым россиянином, ставшим чемпионом «UFC». Когда он возвратился на родину, соотечественники встречали его, как национального героя.

Бой Нурмагомедов vs Макгрегор

Осенью того же года, был организован бой между Макгрегором и Нурмагомедовым, который ждали во всем мире. Посмотреть поединок приехало множество людей с разных стран.

В ходе четвертого раунда, Хабиб сумел провести успешный болевой прием на челюсть, который вынудил Конора сдаться.

Такая реакция Нурмагомедова была вызвана многочисленными оскорблениями его самого, его семьи и веры, которые Конор Макгрегор отпускал задолго до боя.

Однако, несмотря на эти доводы, за недостойное поведение Хабибу Нурмагомедову не стали торжественно вручать чемпионский пояс.

Победа над Макгрегором помогла Хабибу подняться с восьмого на второе место в рейтинге наилучших бойцов «UFC».

Личная жизнь

О личной жизни Хабиба почти ничего не известно, поскольку он предпочитает не выносить ее на всеобщее обозрение. Достоверно известно о том, что он состоит в браке, в котором родились дочь Фатима и сын Магомед.

Осенью 2019 г. в прессе появилась информация о том, что семейство Нурмагомедовых якобы ожидает третьего ребенка, однако насколько правдивой она является сказать сложно.

В жизни Нурмагомедова религия занимает одно из главных мест. Он придерживается всех мусульманских обычаев, вследствие чего не употребляет спиртных напитков, не курит и серьезно относится к законам нравственности. Вместе с братом он совершил хадж в священный для всех мусульман город Мекку.

Нурмагомедов vs Дастин Пуарье

После окончания дисквалификации дагестанец вышел на ринг против американца Дастина Пуарье. В третьем раунде Нурмагомедов осуществил удушающий прием сзади, который привел его к 28 победе в профессиональной карьере.

Интересен факт, что после окончания боя оба противника выказали взаимное уважение. Нурмагомедов даже надел на себя футболку Дастина, чтобы затем выставить ее на аукционе, а все деньги перечислить на благотворительность.

Последняя победа сделала Хабиба самым популярным блогером Рунета. На его страничку в «Инстаграм» подписано около 17 млн человек! Кроме этого, победа послужила поводом для массового веселья в Дагестане. Местные жители выходили на улицы, танцевали и пели песни.

Пока Нурмагомедов не раскрывает имени своего следующего противника. Согласно одним источникам им может стать лучший боец ММА Жорж Сен-Пьер либо Тони Фергюсон, встреча с которым срывалась уже не один раз. Также возможен повторный поединок с Конором Макгрегором.

Положением на 2019 г. Хабиб учится на третьем курсе Российского экономического университета им. Г. В. Плеханова.

Хабиб Нурмагомедов: биография, карьера и личная жизнь бойца

Хабиб Нурмагомедов – один из сильнейших бойцов в истории смешанных единоборств. За свою карьеру Хабиб одержал 28 побед и не потерпел ни одного поражения. Нурмагомедов был поклонником Фёдора Емельяненко, стал первым чемпионом UFC из России, а его бой с Тони Фергюсоном срывался пять раз.

В детстве Нурмагомедова тренировал отец

Хабиб Нурмагомедов родился 20 сентября 1988 года в Дагестане.

Родовое село Хабиба – Сильди. В Сильди живет около 220 человек. В селе есть только мечеть и школа. Родной дом Хабиба – такой же, как и у остальных жителей Сильди, из его окон открывается вид на горы.

Все мужчины в семье были связаны с единоборствами. Отец Хабиба Абдулманап Нурмагомедов – в прошлом самбист, занимался вольной борьбой. Абдулманап – бывший чемпион Украины по самбо и дзюдо, тренировавший 18 чемпионов мира. После окончания карьеры он стал тренером. Дядя Хабиба по отцовской линии был чемпионом мира по спортивному самбо, дядя по материнской линии – мастером спорта по вольной борьбе.

Абдулманап рассказывал, что сын сделал первые шаги на борцовских матах. Когда Хабибу исполнилось 2 года, отец начал его тренировать: учил делать кувырки и бегать. В 5 лет Хабиб начал изучать базовые борцовские приемы.

В детстве Хабиб и его двоюродный брат Абубакар боролись с медвежонком. Такую тренировку детям устроил Абдулманап, который следил за происходящим.

В 2001 году семья Нурмагомедовых переехала в Махачкалу. Абдулманап оборудовал спортзал, в котором стал тренировать сына и местных детей.

Подростком Хабиб был фанатом Фёдора Емельяненко

Однажды друзья Хабиба показали ему запись боя без правил. Нурмагомедову понравились смешанные единоборства (ММА), и он захотел попробовать себя в этом виде спорта. Любимым бойцом Хабиба был россиянин Фёдор Емельяненко, который в 2000-х находился на пике карьеры. Хабиб много раз говорил в интервью, что считает Емельяненко лучшим бойцом в истории смешанных единоборств.

Фёдор Емельяненко – российский боец ММА, четырехкратный чемпион мира по смешанным единоборствам по версии Pride.

Нурмагомедов попросил отца отдать его в секцию единоборств, связанных с ударной техникой, а не только с борьбой. Абдулманап видел потенциал сына и считал, что Хабиб должен быть всесторонне развитым бойцом. Сначала Нурмагомедов стал заниматься дзюдо, а затем – боевым самбо.

c3a9955a1b2e2b9e7ea06dfdcedb0e0dАбдулманап Нурмагомедов рассказывал, что Хабиб стал проявлять большой потенциал и талант, когда ему было 16–17 лет. Фото: sportmedia.news

В 22 года Нурмагомедов стал двукратным чемпионом мира по боевому самбо

У Нурмагомедова была успешная любительская карьера. Он выступал в разных видах единоборств и добивался высоких результатов. Хабиб становился чемпионом России по рукопашному бою, чемпионом Европы по панкратиону и чемпионом мира по грэпплингу.

После нескольких травм Нурмагомедов чуть не закончил спортивную карьеру. Хабиб хотел устроиться охранником, чтобы начать зарабатывать деньги и помогать семье. Отец отговорил Нурмагомедова.

Наибольших успехов Хабиб добился в боевом самбо. В 2010 году прошло сразу два чемпионата мира по этому виду спорта – в апреле в Киеве и в декабре в Москве. Нурмагомедов выиграл на обоих турнирах. В Киеве он соревновался в весовой категории до 74 кг, в Москве – до 82 кг.

Чемпионаты мира, на которых побеждал Нурмагомедов, не считаются официальными в России. Их организовывала Всемирная федерация боевого самбо (WCSF). Официальные чемпионаты проводит Международная федерация самбо (FIAS). Хабиб не участвовал в турнирах под эгидой FIAS.

Нурмагомедов дебютировал в UFC в 2012 году

Параллельно с любительской карьерой Нурмагомедов выступал в смешанных единоборствах. Первый бой по правилам ММА Хабиб провел 13 сентября 2008 года на турнире CSFU: Champions League. Нурмагомедов победил азербайджанца Вусала Байрамова удушающим приемом в первом раунде.

В 2011 году Хабиб окончательно перешел в ММА и перестал соревноваться в других дисциплинах. Всего в 2011-м Нурмагомедов провел 7 боев по правилам смешанных единоборств. Во всех поединках Хабиб одержал досрочные победы: по три раза техническим нокаутом и удушающим приемом, один раз – болевым приемом.

В 2012 году Нурмагомедов подписал контракт с крупнейшей в мире организацией, проводящей бои по правилам смешанных единоборств, – Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

20 января 2012 года Нурмагомедов дебютировал в промоушене на турнире UFC on FX: Guillard vs Miller. Хабиб победил иранца Камала Шалоруса удушающим приемом в третьем раунде.

В 2018 году Нурмагомедов стал чемпионом UFC и победил Конора Макгрегора

К 2018 году Нурмагомедов провел в UFC 9 поединков. Хабиб победил во всех боях: 4 раза досрочно, 5 – единогласным решением судей. Руководство UFC допустило Нурмагомедова до титульного боя. 7 апреля 2018 года Хабиб победил американца Эла Яквинту единогласным решением судей и стал чемпионом UFC в легком весе.

В том же году Нурмагомедов провел еще один бой. 6 октября его соперником стал ирландец Конор Макгрегор.

Конор Макгрегор – один из самых известных бойцов смешанных единоборств. За карьеру он провел 26 боев, в которых добился 22 побед. Макгрегор – единственный боец в истории UFC, который был чемпионом в двух весовых категориях одновременно – легкой и полусредней.

Хабиб доминировал на протяжении всего боя и победил болевым приемом на челюсть в четвертом раунде. После боя Нурмагомедов выпрыгнул за пределы октагона и чуть не устроил массовую драку с командой Макгрегора.

Потасовка после боя связана с давним конфликтом между Нурмагомедовым и Макгрегором. Начиная с 2016 года, бойцы нелицеприятно отзывались друг о друге в интервью. В апреле 2018-го Хабиб ударил спарринг-партнера Макгрегора Артёма Лобова в холле отеля в Нью-Йорке. Через два дня Макгрегор разбил окно микроавтобуса, в котором ехал Хабиб, бросив в машину стул.

Хабиб победил во всех 28 профессиональных поединках

Хабиб выиграл в 16 поединках по правилам смешанных единоборств до вступления в UFC. Победная серия Нурмагомедова в UFC составляет 12 боев – это шестой результат в истории промоушена.

Макс Холлоуэй 13

Хабиб Нурмагомедов 12
Тони Фергюсон 12

25 мая 2013 года в бою против американца Абеля Трухильо Хабиб 21 раз перевел соперника в партер. Это рекорд промоушена по количеству тейкдаунов в одном бою.

Базовый стиль Нурмагомедова в UFC – борьба

Первые годы тренировок сформировали бойцовский стиль Хабиба. Нурмагомедов начинал спортивную карьеру как вольный борец, затем занимался дзюдо. Поэтому он старается переводить соперников в партер и редко дерется в стойке. У Хабиба есть недочеты в ударной технике, потому что он никогда не занимался боксом. Удары Нурмагомедова недостаточно мощные. Он редко завершает бои нокаутами – всего 2 победы в UFC.

Нурмагомедов – один из сильнейших борцов среди представителей ММА. Большой опыт соревнований в дзюдо и самбо помогает Хабибу эффективно проводить тейкдауны. За карьеру в UFC Нурмагомедов 59 раз перевел соперников в партер – 8-й результат в истории промоушена.

После тейкдаунов Нурмагомедов активно работает в партере и не дает соперникам возвращаться в стойку. 54,4% своих боев в UFC Хабиб контролировал соперников в борьбе – 9-й результат в истории промоушена. Нурмагомедов наносит много ударов в партере, постоянно пытается провести болевой или удушающий прием.

Поединок Нурмагомедова против Тони Фергюсона срывался 5 раз

Президент UFC Дэйна Уайт пять раз пытался организовать бой Нурмагомедова против одного из сильнейших бойцов в легком весе американца Тони Фергюсона. Каждый раз поединок срывался.

Первый раз Нурмагомедов и Фергюсон могли встретиться в 2015 году. Бой был запланирован на 31 декабря, но 5 июля Хабиб получил тяжелую травму колена и снялся. Новый бой между спортсменами назначили на 16 апреля 2016 года. На этот раз причиной отмены стало состояние Фергюсона. За 10 дней до боя у американца нашли жидкость и кровь в легких.

Затем бой запланировали на 4 марта 2017 года. Победитель поединка получил бы титул временного чемпиона UFC в легком весе. Бой отменили за шесть часов до начала турнира. Из-за интенсивной сгонки веса у Хабиба появились проблемы с печенью и почками. Нурмагомедова госпитализировали, а поединок отменили.

Бой вновь перенесли на 7 апреля 2018 года. За шесть дней до заявленной даты Фергюсон пришел на интервью в студию телеканала FOX. После эфира он споткнулся о телевизионный кабель, упал и травмировал колено.

После отмены четвертого боя между Нурмагомедовым и Фергюсоном президент UFC Дэйна Уайт пообещал, что никогда не будет организовывать поединок снова. Уайт нарушил слово и собирался устроить бой между бойцами 18 апреля 2020 года. На этот раз оба спортсмена были готовы к встрече, но турнир отменили из-за пандемии коронавируса COVID-19.

Нурмагомедов – один из самых высокооплачиваемых российских спортсменов

В 2019 году журнал Forbes опубликовал список самых высокооплачиваемых российских спортсменов. Рейтинг возглавил Нурмагомедов. По версии издания, Хабиб заработал 11,5 миллиона долларов за год.

Нурмагомедов зарабатывает и за счет рекламы. В 2019 году Хабиб был лицом автомобиля Toyota и энергетического напитка Gorilla.

Самым высокооплачиваемым боем для Нурмагомедова стал поединок против Макгрегора. За победу над ирландцем Хабиб получил 10 миллионов долларов.

В 2019 году Нурмагомедов дважды оказывался в центре скандалов

Сначала Хабиб раскритиковал спектакль «Охота на мужчин», который показали в Махачкале 23 февраля. Во время спектакля актеры находились на сцене полураздетыми. Нурмагомедов написал пост в инстаграме, в котором назвал «Охоту на мужчин» «порнографией» и потребовал у властей Дагестана отреагировать на показ спектакля. После этого актеры, задействованные в спектакле, стали получать угрозы в соцсетях.

3ddc3461f70e81ff76135e2790ca4d00Хабиб потребовал, чтобы власти Дагестана наказали организаторов постановки, и призвал последних извиниться. После высказываний Хабиба один из актеров спектакля извинился перед народом Дагестана. Фото: mskcc.ru

В августе Нурмагомедов выложил в инстаграме ролик с фрагментом концерта рэп-дуэта HammAli & Navai, который прошел в Махачкале в июне. Спортсмен раскритиковал творчество артистов. В сентябре в Махачкале отменили выступление певцов Егора Крида и MC Doni из лейбла Black Star. Основатель Black Star рэпер Тимати связал отмену концертов с высказываниями Нурмагомедова. Затем Тимати и Хабиб обменялись нелицеприятными постами в инстаграме. Конфликт урегулировал глава Чеченской Республики Рамзан Кадыров. Он обратился к Тимати и Нурмагомедову через соцсети и попросил прекратить выяснение отношений.

Хабиб женился в 2013 году

Хабиб женился на девушке Патимат. Молодые люди познакомились в родном селе Хабиба Сильди, когда учились в школе. На свадьбу Хабиба и Патимат пришло больше 1200 человек. Лицо девушки было скрыто под покрывалом. Нурмагомедов придерживается строгих мусульманских традиций, согласно которым красота жены должна принадлежать только мужу.

Нурмагомедов никогда не берет Патимат с собой, когда готовится к боям. Хабиб говорит, что жена отвлекает его от тренировочного процесса.

У Хабиба и Патимат трое детей: дочь и двое сыновей. Нурмагомедов хочет, чтобы его сыновья занимались единоборствами, но пока не знает, будут ли они профессиональными спортсменами.

Биография, карьера, личная жизнь и скандалы с Хабибом Нурмагомедовым в формате интересных фактов.

Биография

1. Происхождение

Хабиб Абдулманапович Нурмагомедов родился 20 сентября 1988 года в селении Сильди Цумадинского района (Дагестан, Россия). Его отец Абдулманап Нурмагомедов является тренером по различным единоборства, поэтому с выбором профессии у Хабиба никакой сложности не было.

По национальности Нурмагомедов аварец.

Карьера

2. Кто его тренирует

С детства Хабиб тренировался под руководством своего отца, который является мастером спорта СССР по вольной борьбе и заслуженным тренером России. В США тренируется под руководством Хавьера Мендеса в зале АКА (American Kickboxing Academy).

3. Первый бой

Свой первый бой в смешанных единоборствах Хабиб провел 13 сентября 2008 года на турнире CSFU: Champions League против азербайджанца Вусала Байрамова. Противник был повержен за 2 минуты 20 секунд с помощью удушающего приема.

4. Pankration Atrium Cup

11 октября 2008 выиграл Кубок России, проведя за один день три боя и выиграв каждый из них в двух раундах единогласным решением судей.

5. Развитие карьеры

С 2009 по 2012 года провел 12 боев, все из которых выиграл. Значительная часть боев проходила под эгидой M-1 и ProFC, в соперниках в основном были бойцы из бывших советских республик.

6. Дебют в UFC

Первый бой под эгидой UFC состоялся на турнире UFC on FX 20 января 2012 года против иранца Камала Шалоруса. Хабиб закончил бой в середине третьего раунда, проведя удушающий прием.

Затем последовала серия из 8 побед в UFC. Среди поверженных соперников были такие именитые бойцы, как Рафаэл дус Анжус, Даррелл Хорчер, Майкл Джонсон, Эдсон Барбоза.

7. Травмы

5 июля 2014 года боец получил травму колена (разрыв крестообразных связок), из-за чего выбыл на один год перед боем против Тони Фергюсона. А уже в 2015 году Хабиб сломал ребро, вследствие чего не смог провести следующий назначенный бой.

8. Титул чемпиона UFC в лёгком весе

7 апреля 2018 победил в пяти раундах Эла Яквинту и завоевал титул чемпиона UFC в лёгком весе. Победа Хабибу была присуждена единогласным решением судей.

9. Хабиб Нурмагомедов vs Конор Макгрегор

Еще до начала боя все признали, что это будет если не боем века, то уж года точно. Спортсмены постоянно нагнетали обстановку до боя, используя социальные сети, личные встречи и своих членов команд.

Предположительно, начал все сам Хабиб. В интервью после победного боя с Майклом Джонсоном, он назвал Макгрегора «цыпленком» и потребовал от того выйти с ним на бой. Отметим, что у самого Нурмагомедов прозвище «Орел», поэтому аналогии тут весьма прямые. Сам же Хабиб отметил, что фамилия Макгрегор очень похожа на макчикен, поэтому он так назвал своего будущего соперника.

Почему конфликт на тот момент был интересен Хабибу? Ирландец был более известным и раскрученным бойцом, бой с ним стал бы для россиянина удачным с коммерческой точки зрения независимо от исхода самого боя.

Ответ пришел не от самого Макгрегора, а от его друга россиянина Артема Лобова. Тот раскритиковал самого Нурмагомедов за отказ от боев по причине травм и назвал Хабиба трусливым.

Позже, когда о самом конфликте многие забыли, в сети появилось видео потасовки Нурмагомедова и Лобова 7 апреля на UFC 223. Встретив Артема, Хабиб решил получить ответ за слова о его трусливости. На прямой вопрос, Лобов ответил, что не помнит сказанных им слов. Конечно, после этого заявления прошел почти год, но скорее всего, сам Артем не захотел начинать бой в неравных условиях — команда Хабиба была в большинстве.

Ответить за наезд на друга, Макгрегор решил сам. Во всех СМИ показывали нападение ирландца на автобус Нурмагомедова. В меньшинстве оказались уже представители Хабиба, поэтому покидать автобус и вступать в потасовку никто не стал.

Конечно, уже после назначения даты боя, черный пиар был выгоден обоим бойцам. Есть предположение, что все было заранее продуманной пиар-акцией с целью раскрутки конкретного боя. UFC смогла выжать из боя максимум прибыли, возможно, шоу с дракой после боя — это также продуманная акция под матч-реванш.

Что сказать о самом бое? Он прошел 6 октября 2018 в Лас-Вегасе и был выигран Хабибом с помощью удушающего приема в четвертом раунде. Весь бой проходил под диктовку россиянина, особенно, когда ему удавалось проводить тейкдауны. Какие-то проблески в бою для Макгрегора можно было наблюдать только в третьем раунде, который практически полностью бойцы провели «на ногах». Но даже в стойках бойцы были как минимум равны.

На итогах боя сказался не только стиль бойцов: Хабиб силен в борьбе внизу, а Конор чистый «ударник», но и то, что у ирландца был двухгодичный перерыв после последнего боя. Все свои 4 поражения за карьеру он получил именно «внизу».

10. Скандал после боя

Весь бой против Макгрегора Хабибу приходилось не только слышать свист трибун, но оскорбления от команды ирландца. Именно поэтому уже после победы, он не сдержался и, перепрыгнув ограждение, полез в драку с Диланом Дэнисом.

После этого отдельные драки завязались как в зрительном зале, так и в октагоне. В тот день это привело к тому, что представитель UFC отказался вручать заслуженный пояс чемпиона Хабибу, так как боялся массовых беспорядков.

Расследование инцидента пока продолжается. По его итогам Нурмагомедова могут лишить гонорара за бой и даже титула.

Другие факты

11. Популярность в социальных сетях

Нурмагомедов и так был популярен в социальной сети Instagram, но после победы над Макгрегором, он получил еще несколько миллионов подписчиков. Сейчас их количество уже более 10 000 000 человек.

12. Стиль боя

В смешанных единоборствах большинство бойцов можно однозначно отнести к «ударникам», которые любят биться, оставаясь на ногах, и «борцов», предпочитающих добиваться победы в партере. Хабиб однозначно относится к борцам, сказываются тренировки отца, являющегося мастером спорта по вольной борьбе.

13. Скандал с Black Star

Этот скандал начинался совсем без участия Хабиба. 9 сентября 2018 года должен был состояться концерт известных исполнителей лейбла Black Star Егора Крида и MC Doni в Дагестане. Но Крид начал получать в социальных сетях слишком много угроз от обычных пользователей с намеками не приезжать в Махачкалу.

Исполнители приняли решение отменить концерт, о чем сообщили в социальных сетях. Вот на это и отреагировал Нурмагомедов, репостнув сообщение об отмене с подписью «не велика потеря».

В ответ на это, в социальных сетях на Хабиба ополчились многие пользователи. Часть критики боец получил от Крида и от владельца бренда Black Star Тимати. Надо отметить, что все высказали свое мнение, но сделали это максимально корректно, без оскорблений.

A two-time Combat Sambo World Champion, Nurmagomedov has a background in the disciplines of sambo, judo and wrestling. Nurmagomedov was ranked #1 in the UFC men’s pound-for-pound rankings at the time of his retirement,[14] until being removed following his title vacation in March 2021.[15] Fight Matrix ranks him as the #1 lightweight of all time.[16]

Coming from the Republic of Dagestan in Russia, Nurmagomedov is the first Muslim to win a UFC title.[17][18] He is the most-followed Russian on Instagram,[19] with more than 34 million followers as of December 2022.[20] He is also a mixed martial arts (MMA) promoter, known for promoting the Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC). Since retirement, he has transitioned to a mixed martial arts coach and cornerman.

Early life

Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov was born to an Avar family on 20 September 1988, in the village of Sildi in the Tsumadinsky District of the Dagestan ASSR, an autonomous republic within the Russian SFSR, Soviet Union.[21][22][23] He has an older brother, Magomed, and younger sister, Amina.[24] His father’s family had moved from Sildi to Kirovaul, where his father converted the ground floor of their two-storey building into a gym. Nurmagomedov grew up in the household with his siblings and cousins.[24] His interest in martial arts began when watching students training at the gym.[25][26] Khabib’s training as a child included wrestling a bear when he was nine years old.[27][28]

As is common with many children in Dagestan, he began wrestling from an early age: he started at the age of eight under the tutelage of his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.[29] A decorated athlete and a veteran of the Soviet Army, Abdulmanap had also wrestled from an early age, before undergoing training in judo and sambo in the military.[30] Abdulmanap dedicated his life to coaching the youth in Dagestan, in hopes of offering an alternative to the Islamic extremism common to the region.[31][32]

In 2001, his family moved to Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan,[33] where he trained in wrestling from the age of 12, and judo from 15. He resumed training in combat sambo, under his father, at 17.[34] According to Nurmagomedov, the transition from wrestling to judo was difficult, but his father wanted him to get used to competing in a gi jacket.[21] Abdulmanap was a senior coach for the combat sambo national team in the Republic of Dagestan, training several athletes in sambo in Makhachkala, Russia.[30] Nurmagomedov frequently got into street fights in his youth, before focusing his attention on mixed martial arts.[35] Khabib said that, along with his father, three athletes who inspired him were the American boxers Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson and the Brazilian footballer Ronaldo.[36]

Mixed martial arts career

Early career

Nurmagomedov made his professional MMA debut in September 2008 and compiled four wins in under a month. On 11 October, he became the inaugural Atrium Cup tournament champion, having defeated his three opponents at the Moscow event. Over the next three years, he went undefeated, finishing 11 out of 12 opponents. These included a first-round armbar finish of future Bellator title challenger Shahbulat Shamhalaev, which marked his M-1 Global debut. In 2011, he competed in seven fights for the ProFC promotion, all of which he won by TKO or submission.

A 16–0 record in the regional circuits of Russia and Ukraine generated interest from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in signing Nurmagomedov.[37][38] Later, Nurmagomedov’s father revealed in an interview that due to a contract dispute with ProFC they had 11 court cases contesting the legitimacy of Nurmagomedov’s UFC contract. After losing six and winning five cases, they reached an agreement and Khabib was able to continue his career.[39]

Ultimate Fighting Championship

Early UFC fights and championship pursuits

In late 2011, Nurmagomedov signed a six-fight deal to compete in the UFC’s lightweight division.[40]

In his UFC debut, on 20 January 2012 at UFC on FX 1, Nurmagomedov defeated Kamal Shalorus via submission in the third round.[41]

Nurmagomedov next defeated Gleison Tibau on 7 July 2012 at UFC 148 via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27.[42]

Nurmagomedov’s next fight was against Thiago Tavares on 19 January 2013 at UFC on FX 7.[43] He won via KO in the first round. After the fight, Tavares tested positive for Drostanolone, an anabolic steroid, and received a 9-month suspension.[44]

Nurmagomedov defeated Abel Trujillo on 25 May 2013 at UFC 160 via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27. At the weigh-ins, Nurmagomedov came in over the permitted limit, weighing in at 158.5 lb. He was given two hours to cut to the lightweight maximum of 156 pounds but elected instead to surrender a percentage of his fight purse to Trujillo and the bout was contested at a catchweight.[45] In the course of the fight, Nurmagomedov set a new UFC record for the most takedowns in a single fight, with 21 successful takedowns out of 28 attempts.[46]

In his fifth UFC fight, on 21 September 2013 at UFC 165, Nurmagomedov faced Pat Healy.[47] He dominated the fight and won via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27. Attending his first post-event press conference, UFC president Dana White praised the relative newcomer stating, «That slam, when he just scoops him up and slams him, Matt Hughes style. That reminded me of the old Matt Hughes where he would run a guy across the Octagon and slam him. The kid is exciting. We’re probably going to do big things with this kid.»[48]

In December, Nurmagomedov challenged Gilbert Melendez on social media, with the two then expected to face off at UFC 170 on 22 February 2014.[49] However, the bout was cancelled for undisclosed reasons,[50] and Melendez was replaced by Nate Diaz. However, the match-up was cancelled as Diaz turned the bout down.[51] Nurmagomedov expressed his disappointment, appearing on The MMA Hour, «If they say that they’re willing to fight the best, they should fight the best. If they want, I’ll take them both at once in the cage.»[52]

Nurmagomedov next faced former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos on 19 April 2014 at UFC on Fox 11.[53] He dominated the fight and won via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27.[54]

Nurmagomedov was briefly linked to a bout with Donald Cerrone on 27 September 2014 at UFC 178.[55] However, the pairing was quickly scrapped after it was revealed that Nurmagomedov had suffered a knee injury.[56] He was later expected to face Cerrone on 23 May 2015, at UFC 187.[57] However, Nurmagomedov pulled out of the bout on 30 April due to a recurring knee injury and was replaced by John Makdessi.[58]

Nurmagomedov was expected to face Tony Ferguson on 11 December 2015 at The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale.[59] However, Nurmagomedov pulled out of the fight in late October, citing another injury, and was replaced by Edson Barboza.[60]

Nurmagomedov and his father, Abdulmanap in 2016

The bout with Ferguson was rescheduled for 16 April 2016 at UFC on Fox 19.[61] However, on 5 April, Ferguson pulled out of the bout due to a lung issue.[62] Ferguson was replaced by promotional newcomer Darrell Horcher at a catchweight of 160 lb.[63] Nurmagomedov won the one-sided fight by TKO in the second round.[64]

In September, Nurmagomedov signed two contracts for a title shot against the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion, Eddie Alvarez, on either the UFC 205 or the UFC 206 fight card, with Dana White confirming the bout for UFC 205.[65][66] However, on 26 September, the UFC announced that Alvarez would instead be defending the title against Conor McGregor.[67] Nurmagomedov voiced his displeasure on social media, calling Alvarez a «bullshit champ» for refusing the fight and opting for a bout with McGregor instead,[68] accusing the UFC of being a «freak show».[69]

In lieu of a title shot, Nurmagomedov next faced Michael Johnson on 12 November 2016 at UFC 205.[70] Nurmagomedov dominated the fight and was heard telling Dana White to give him a title shot as he mauled Johnson, winning via submission in the third round.[71]

The bout with Ferguson was scheduled for a third time at UFC 209 on 4 March 2017 for the interim Lightweight Championship.[72] Nurmagomedov, however, fell ill because of a botched weight cut, and the bout was cancelled as a result.[73][74]

Nurmagomedov faced Edson Barboza on 30 December 2017 at UFC 219.[75] Nurmagomedov dominated all three rounds, taking Barboza down repeatedly and dominating the fight with ground and pound. He won the fight by unanimous decision, with scores of 30-25, 30-25 and 30-24.[76] This win also earned him his first Performance of the Night bonus.[77]

UFC Lightweight Champion

Nurmagomedov vs. Iaquinta

A bout with Ferguson had been scheduled for the fourth time and was expected to take place on 7 April 2018 at UFC 223.[78] However, on 1 April 2018, it was reported that Ferguson had injured his knee and was to be replaced by Max Holloway.[79][80] On 6 April, Holloway was pulled from the fight after the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) declared him unfit to compete due to extreme weight cutting, and replaced by Al Iaquinta. Iaquinta’s inclusion in the fight was controversial: the UFC’s first choice to replace Holloway, Anthony Pettis, weighed in 0.2 pounds over the championship limit of 155 pounds and did not choose to re-weigh, and its second choice, Paul Felder, was rejected by NYSAC because he was not in the UFC’s rankings at the time of the fight. Only Nurmagomedov was eligible to win the championship, as Iaquinta also weighed in 0.2 pounds over the championship weight limit.[81] Nurmagomedov dominated the fight and won via unanimous decision, with scores of 50-44, 50-43 and 50-43, and became the UFC Lightweight Champion.[82]

Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor

Nurmagomedov and his father meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin four days after his win against McGregor

On Friday, 3 August 2018, the UFC announced that Nurmagomedov would make his first defence of his lightweight title against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on October 6 in Las Vegas.[83] In the fight, Nurmagomedov won the first two rounds, but lost the third round to McGregor. It was the first time Nurmagomedov lost a round in his UFC career.[84][85] He managed to defeat McGregor in the fourth round via submission.[86] After the contest, Nurmagomedov scaled the Octagon and tried to attack McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis, which resulted in a brawl between the two teams.[87] After the bout against the Irishman, Khabib improved his record to 27-0 which was then the longest win streak in UFC history. The event drew 2.4 million pay-per-view buys, the most ever for an MMA event.[88]

Nurmagomedov vs. Poirier

In June 2019, Nurmagomedov signed a new multi-fight contract with the UFC.[89] In the first fight of his new deal, Nurmagomedov made the second defence of his title against interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier on 7 September 2019 in the main event at UFC 242.[90] He won the fight via a rear naked choke submission in the third round.[91] The win unified both titles and earned Nurmagomedov his second Performance of the Night bonus award.[92] He and Poirier swapped shirts after the fight as a show of respect. In his post-fight interview Nurmagomedov said that he would be selling the shirt Poirier gave him and donating the proceeds to Poirier’s charity.[93] The shirt sold for $100,000 and the donation was matched by UFC president Dana White.[94]

Nurmagomedov vs. Gaethje

Nurmagomedov was scheduled to defend his title against Tony Ferguson on 18 April 2020 at UFC 249. This was the fifth time that a fight between the pair had been scheduled, and both fighters were on 12-fight win streaks in the UFC.[95] However, Nurmagomedov was unable to leave Russia because of restricted air travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and so was removed from the card.[96] Ferguson instead faced top contender Justin Gaethje for the interim UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 249, which was postponed to 9 May. Gaethje won the fight by fifth-round TKO, thus ending Ferguson’s win streak and securing himself a shot at the undisputed title against Nurmagomedov.[97]

Nurmagomedov faced Gaethje in a unification bout on 24 October 2020 in the main event at UFC 254.[98][99][100] Nurmagomedov won the fight via technical submission with a triangle choke in the second round to defend and re-unify the UFC Lightweight Championship. In his post-fight interview, Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from mixed martial arts. He explained that he had promised his mother that he would not continue to fight without his late father, «No way I’m going to come here without my father. It was first time after what happened with my father, when UFC called me about Justin, I talk with my mother three days. She doesn’t want me to go fight without my father but I promised her it was going to be my last fight. If I give my word, I have to follow this. It was my last fight here.»[101][102] This win earned him the Performance of the Night award.[103] Daniel Cormier claimed in an episode of DC & Helwani, after the fight, that Khabib had said he chose the triangle choke instead of an arm bar in order to prevent Gaethje from being injured.[104][105]

Retirement and vacation of the UFC Lightweight Championship

Despite attempted negotiations to bring him back for one more fight, UFC president Dana White announced on 19 March 2021 that he had accepted Nurmagomedov’s decision to retire and that the UFC Lightweight Championship had been officially vacated.[106]

On July 1, 2022 Nurmagomedov was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on the International Fight Week in Las Vegas.[107]

MMA promoter

Following his retirement, Nurmagomedov purchased the Gorilla Fighting Championship (GFC), a Russian-based MMA promotion, for $1 million[108] – going on to rename it as the Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC).[109]

MMA coach and cornerman

Since retiring in October 2020, Nurmagomedov has been an active coach with American Kickboxing Academy head coach Javier Mendez. He currently coaches and corners current UFC Lightweight Champion Islam Makhachev, Zubaira Tukhugov (UFC), Tagir Ulanbekov (UFC), Islam Mamedov (Bellator), Gadzhi Rabadanov (Bellator), Saygid Izagakhmaev (ONE Championship) and cousins Abubakar Nurmagomedov (UFC), Umar Nurmagomedov (UFC), Usman Nurmagomedov (Bellator), and Belal Muhammad at UFC 280.[110][111][112][113]

Fighting style

Nurmagomedov employs a wrestling-based style of relentless pressure against his opponents, often described as «mauling». Using a variety of wrestling and judo/sambo takedowns, he forces his opponents against the cage, and locks up their legs and an arm to prevent them from escaping. From this position, he exhausts his opponents by forcing his weight against them and attacks with measured strikes his opponents are often unable to defend. This was one of his many signature styles that he used to deploy to advance towards his finishing move.[114] Throughout his career, nineteen of his twenty-nine victories had come by way of either TKO/KO or submission.[115]

Former three-time UFC Heavyweight Champion and two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture praised Nurmagomedov as “brilliant”.[116] MMA Commentator Joe Rogan, a black belt in both 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, said of Nurmagomedov, “He’s the most terrifying lightweight contender in the world,” and “he’s just on such another level [of grappling] that the odds of beating him drop significantly after the first minute-and-a-half.”[117] UFC referee Herb Dean stated Nurmagomedov constantly talks to his opponents during fights.[118]

Personal life

As part of his Dagestani Avar culture, Nurmagomedov frequently wears a papakha hat after fights and during promotional events.[119] He speaks several languages, including Avar, Kumyk, Russian, English, Turkish, and Arabic.[120] As of 2019, Nurmagomedov is a third-year student at the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics.[121] He is an avid football fan and supporter of the clubs Anzhi Makhachkala, Galatasaray, Real Madrid and Liverpool, as well as the Russia national team.[29][122][123]

Nurmagomedov is a Sunni Muslim.[124] In October 2020, The Guardian stated that Nurmagomedov is the second-most popular Muslim athlete in the world, behind only the Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah. The Guardian additionally stated that, since his high-profile victory over McGregor, Nurmagomedov has used his influential status to «further his ultra-conservative worldview».[32] In 2018, Nurmagomedov advocated a crackdown on nightclubs in his home region of Dagestan,[125] and levelled criticism at a rap concert held in Makhachkala, which led to rapper Egor Kreed cancelling his performances in the region.[32] In 2019, Nurmagomedov spoke out against a play held in Dagestan that featured a scene of a scantily-clad woman seducing a man. He described the play as «filth», recommended that there be a governmental investigation into its production, and called for those involved to issue a public apology, which allegedly led to the producer of the play receiving threats on social media.[32][126] In October 2020, Nurmagomedov criticised the President of France Emmanuel Macron in the wake of the murder of Samuel Paty, stating «May the Almighty disfigure the face of this creature and all its followers, who, under the slogan of freedom of speech, offend the feelings of more than one and a half billion Muslim believers. May the Almighty humiliate them in this life, and in the next.»[127][128]

Nurmagomedov has trained with SC Bazarganova in Kizilyurt, Dagestan (2012),[129] K-Dojo, AMA Fight Club in Fairfield, New Jersey (2012), Mamishev Fight Team in Saint Petersburg (2012),[130] Fight Spirit Team in Kolpino, St. Petersburg (2013),[131] and KHK MMA Team in Bahrain (2015), which was funded by Bahraini prince Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa.[132] In 2016, Nurmagomedov co-founded his own team, Eagles MMA, with support from the Dagestani billionaire Ziyavudin Magomedov.[133] After Magomedov was arrested on charges of embezzlement in 2018, Nurmagomedov used his post-fight speech at UFC 223 to appeal to Russian president Vladimir Putin for Magomedov’s release from jail.[32] Nurmagomedov has also hosted a training seminar at the Akhmat MMA fight club that is funded by Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov, who has received criticism from some quarters for his government’s alleged human rights abuses.[32][134][135][136]

In December 2021, Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz publicly offered former UFC rival Tony Ferguson a grappling match against Nurmagomedov.[137]

Family

Nurmagomedov married Patimat in June 2013 and they have three children: a daughter born 1 June 2015, a son born 30 December 2017,[138] and a son born on 22 December 2019.[139] The first son was named Magomed, after Khabib’s great-grandfather.[140] Among Nurmagomedov’s cousins are fellow UFC fighters Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Umar Nurmagomedov, and Bellator fighter Usman Nurmagomedov.[141][142]

In May 2020, Nurmagomedov’s father and long-time trainer Abdulmanap was placed in a medically induced coma after contracting COVID-19 following a heart surgery.[143][144] He died on 3 July 2020 at a clinic in Moscow, at the age of 57.[145][146]

Awards

In October 2018, Nurmagomedov was made an «Honorary Citizen of Grozny» by the mayor of Grozny Ibrahim Zakriev after his victory against McGregor at UFC 229. He was also presented with a Mercedes car by Chechnya’s head Ramzan Kadyrov, funded from the Akhmad Kadyrov Foundation, and his father Abdulmanap was awarded the title of «Honoured Worker of Physical Culture of the Chechen Republic» by Kadyrov.[147]

On 5 December, 2019, Head of the Republic of Dagestan Vladimir Vasilyev awarded Nurmagomedov and his father, Abdulmanap the Order For Services to the Republic of Dagestan for their «significant contributions to sports in Dagestan».[148]

Controversies

Bus attack at UFC 223 Media Day

On 3 April 2018, Nurmagomedov and fellow fighter Artem Lobov had an altercation, in which Nurmagomedov and his entourage cornered Lobov and slapped him multiple times.[149] Lobov is known to be close to Conor McGregor, with whom Nurmagomedov had verbal altercations and trash talk exchanges.[150] Two days later, during promotional appearances for UFC 223, McGregor and his entourage were let into the Barclays Center by credentialed members of his promotional team. They confronted Nurmagomedov, who was on a bus leaving the arena with other «red corner» fighters for UFC 223 onboard, including Rose Namajunas, Al Iaquinta, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Ray Borg, and Michael Chiesa.[151] McGregor ran up alongside the slowly moving bus and then ran past it to grab a metal equipment dolly, which he threw at the bus’s window, before trying to throw other objects in the vicinity.[152] Chiesa and Borg were injured by the shattered glass, and sent to hospital. They were soon removed from the card on the advice of the NYSAC and the UFC’s medical team.[153]

McGregor and others involved initially fled the Barclays Center after the incident.[154] UFC president Dana White said there was a warrant out for McGregor’s arrest, and the NYPD said McGregor was a person of interest.[155] White claimed McGregor told him via text message: «This had to be done.»[156] White said, «You can imagine he’s going to be sued beyond belief,» and denied suggestions that the violence was a stunt intended to generate interest in the UFC.[157] McGregor later turned himself in to a police station, where he faced three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.[158][159] He was further charged with menacing and reckless endangerment at his arraignment and released on $50,000 bail until 14 June 2018.[160][161] Under the bail conditions set by the judge, McGregor was allowed to travel without restriction.[162][163] McGregor later pleaded no contest to a count of disorderly conduct and was ordered to perform five days of community service and attend anger management classes.[164]

Incident at UFC 229

On 6 October 2018, following his victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229, Nurmagomedov jumped over the octagon fence and charged at McGregor’s cornerman, Dillon Danis. Danis had reportedly shouted insults at Nurmagomedov.[165] Soon afterwards, McGregor and Abubakar Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s cousin, attempted to exit the octagon, but a scuffle broke out between them after McGregor punched Abubakar, who then punched him back.[166][167] McGregor was then attacked from behind inside the octagon by two of Nurmagomedov’s cornermen, Zubaira Tukhugov and Esed Emiragaev.[168] Tukhugov, a Chechen fighter, was scheduled to fight on 27 October 2018 at UFC Fight Night: Volkan vs. Smith against Artem Lobov, the McGregor team member who was confronted by Nurmagomedov in April 2018. Tukhugov was removed from the card on 17 October.[169]

Nurmagomedov’s payment for the fight was withheld by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) as a result, pending an investigation into his actions. He appeared at the post-fight interview and apologized to the NSAC, saying he was provoked by McGregor’s trash talk and the UFC 223 bus incident, adding, «You cannot talk about religion. You cannot talk about nation. Guys, you cannot talk about these things. This is very important to me.»[170] He later posted on Instagram that he had warned McGregor that he would pay for everything he had done on 6 October.[171] Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap, later said he did not hold a grudge towards McGregor and invited him to Russia to train.[172]

The NSAC filed a formal complaint against both Nurmagomedov and McGregor, and on 24 October, the NSAC voted to approve a motion to release half of Nurmagomedov’s $2 million fight payout immediately. Both Nurmagomedov and McGregor received indefinite bans until an official hearing would determine the disciplinary outcome of the post-fight brawl.[173] On 29 January 2019, the NSAC announced a nine-month suspension for Nurmagomedov (retroactive to 6 October 2018) and a $500,000 fine. He was eligible to compete again on 6 July 2019.[174] McGregor also received a six-month suspension and $50,000 fine, while Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov each received 12-month suspensions and fines of $25,000. Khabib Nurmagomedov complained about the NSAC’s decisions and stated he no longer wished to compete in the state of Nevada.[175]

In August 2021, Nurmagomedov attracted controversy after an EFC press conference when asked by a reporter about why he does not have ring girls at his promotion. Khabib stated that he did not have an issue with how other promotions went about their operations, stating that they are welcome to do things however they wish, but that he did not see a need for them in his promotion. He said that he personally saw no point to ring girls and their function of parading round cards around before the start of each round. According to him, it is a pointless exercise that makes him «uncomfortable».[176]

Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov[a] (born 20 September 1988) is a Russian former professional mixed martial artist. He competed in the lightweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where he was the longest-reigning UFC Lightweight Champion ever, having held the title from April 2018 to March 2021. With 29 wins and no losses, he retired with an undefeated record.[7] Nurmagomedov is widely considered to be among the greatest mixed martial artists of all time,[8][9][10][11][12] and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on June 30, 2022.[13]

A two-time Combat Sambo World Champion, Nurmagomedov has a background in the disciplines of sambo, judo and wrestling. Nurmagomedov was ranked #1 in the UFC men’s pound-for-pound rankings at the time of his retirement,[14] until being removed following his title vacation in March 2021.[15] Fight Matrix ranks him as the #1 lightweight of all time.[16]

Coming from the Republic of Dagestan in Russia, Nurmagomedov is the first Muslim to win a UFC title.[17][18] He is the most-followed Russian on Instagram,[19] with more than 34 million followers as of December 2022.[20] He is also a mixed martial arts (MMA) promoter, known for promoting the Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC). Since retirement, he has transitioned to a mixed martial arts coach and cornerman.

Early life

Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov was born to an Avar family on 20 September 1988, in the village of Sildi in the Tsumadinsky District of the Dagestan ASSR, an autonomous republic within the Russian SFSR, Soviet Union.[21][22][23] He has an older brother, Magomed, and younger sister, Amina.[24] His father’s family had moved from Sildi to Kirovaul, where his father converted the ground floor of their two-storey building into a gym. Nurmagomedov grew up in the household with his siblings and cousins.[24] His interest in martial arts began when watching students training at the gym.[25][26] Khabib’s training as a child included wrestling a bear when he was nine years old.[27][28]

As is common with many children in Dagestan, he began wrestling from an early age: he started at the age of eight under the tutelage of his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.[29] A decorated athlete and a veteran of the Soviet Army, Abdulmanap had also wrestled from an early age, before undergoing training in judo and sambo in the military.[30] Abdulmanap dedicated his life to coaching the youth in Dagestan, in hopes of offering an alternative to the Islamic extremism common to the region.[31][32]

In 2001, his family moved to Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan,[33] where he trained in wrestling from the age of 12, and judo from 15. He resumed training in combat sambo, under his father, at 17.[34] According to Nurmagomedov, the transition from wrestling to judo was difficult, but his father wanted him to get used to competing in a gi jacket.[21] Abdulmanap was a senior coach for the combat sambo national team in the Republic of Dagestan, training several athletes in sambo in Makhachkala, Russia.[30] Nurmagomedov frequently got into street fights in his youth, before focusing his attention on mixed martial arts.[35] Khabib said that, along with his father, three athletes who inspired him were the American boxers Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson and the Brazilian footballer Ronaldo.[36]

Mixed martial arts career

Early career

Nurmagomedov made his professional MMA debut in September 2008 and compiled four wins in under a month. On 11 October, he became the inaugural Atrium Cup tournament champion, having defeated his three opponents at the Moscow event. Over the next three years, he went undefeated, finishing 11 out of 12 opponents. These included a first-round armbar finish of future Bellator title challenger Shahbulat Shamhalaev, which marked his M-1 Global debut. In 2011, he competed in seven fights for the ProFC promotion, all of which he won by TKO or submission.

A 16–0 record in the regional circuits of Russia and Ukraine generated interest from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in signing Nurmagomedov.[37][38] Later, Nurmagomedov’s father revealed in an interview that due to a contract dispute with ProFC they had 11 court cases contesting the legitimacy of Nurmagomedov’s UFC contract. After losing six and winning five cases, they reached an agreement and Khabib was able to continue his career.[39]

Ultimate Fighting Championship

Early UFC fights and championship pursuits

In late 2011, Nurmagomedov signed a six-fight deal to compete in the UFC’s lightweight division.[40]

In his UFC debut, on 20 January 2012 at UFC on FX 1, Nurmagomedov defeated Kamal Shalorus via submission in the third round.[41]

Nurmagomedov next defeated Gleison Tibau on 7 July 2012 at UFC 148 via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27.[42]

Nurmagomedov’s next fight was against Thiago Tavares on 19 January 2013 at UFC on FX 7.[43] He won via KO in the first round. After the fight, Tavares tested positive for Drostanolone, an anabolic steroid, and received a 9-month suspension.[44]

Nurmagomedov defeated Abel Trujillo on 25 May 2013 at UFC 160 via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27. At the weigh-ins, Nurmagomedov came in over the permitted limit, weighing in at 158.5 lb. He was given two hours to cut to the lightweight maximum of 156 pounds but elected instead to surrender a percentage of his fight purse to Trujillo and the bout was contested at a catchweight.[45] In the course of the fight, Nurmagomedov set a new UFC record for the most takedowns in a single fight, with 21 successful takedowns out of 28 attempts.[46]

In his fifth UFC fight, on 21 September 2013 at UFC 165, Nurmagomedov faced Pat Healy.[47] He dominated the fight and won via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27. Attending his first post-event press conference, UFC president Dana White praised the relative newcomer stating, «That slam, when he just scoops him up and slams him, Matt Hughes style. That reminded me of the old Matt Hughes where he would run a guy across the Octagon and slam him. The kid is exciting. We’re probably going to do big things with this kid.»[48]

In December, Nurmagomedov challenged Gilbert Melendez on social media, with the two then expected to face off at UFC 170 on 22 February 2014.[49] However, the bout was cancelled for undisclosed reasons,[50] and Melendez was replaced by Nate Diaz. However, the match-up was cancelled as Diaz turned the bout down.[51] Nurmagomedov expressed his disappointment, appearing on The MMA Hour, «If they say that they’re willing to fight the best, they should fight the best. If they want, I’ll take them both at once in the cage.»[52]

Nurmagomedov next faced former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos on 19 April 2014 at UFC on Fox 11.[53] He dominated the fight and won via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27.[54]

Nurmagomedov was briefly linked to a bout with Donald Cerrone on 27 September 2014 at UFC 178.[55] However, the pairing was quickly scrapped after it was revealed that Nurmagomedov had suffered a knee injury.[56] He was later expected to face Cerrone on 23 May 2015, at UFC 187.[57] However, Nurmagomedov pulled out of the bout on 30 April due to a recurring knee injury and was replaced by John Makdessi.[58]

Nurmagomedov was expected to face Tony Ferguson on 11 December 2015 at The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale.[59] However, Nurmagomedov pulled out of the fight in late October, citing another injury, and was replaced by Edson Barboza.[60]

Nurmagomedov and his father, Abdulmanap in 2016

The bout with Ferguson was rescheduled for 16 April 2016 at UFC on Fox 19.[61] However, on 5 April, Ferguson pulled out of the bout due to a lung issue.[62] Ferguson was replaced by promotional newcomer Darrell Horcher at a catchweight of 160 lb.[63] Nurmagomedov won the one-sided fight by TKO in the second round.[64]

In September, Nurmagomedov signed two contracts for a title shot against the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion, Eddie Alvarez, on either the UFC 205 or the UFC 206 fight card, with Dana White confirming the bout for UFC 205.[65][66] However, on 26 September, the UFC announced that Alvarez would instead be defending the title against Conor McGregor.[67] Nurmagomedov voiced his displeasure on social media, calling Alvarez a «bullshit champ» for refusing the fight and opting for a bout with McGregor instead,[68] accusing the UFC of being a «freak show».[69]

In lieu of a title shot, Nurmagomedov next faced Michael Johnson on 12 November 2016 at UFC 205.[70] Nurmagomedov dominated the fight and was heard telling Dana White to give him a title shot as he mauled Johnson, winning via submission in the third round.[71]

The bout with Ferguson was scheduled for a third time at UFC 209 on 4 March 2017 for the interim Lightweight Championship.[72] Nurmagomedov, however, fell ill because of a botched weight cut, and the bout was cancelled as a result.[73][74]

Nurmagomedov faced Edson Barboza on 30 December 2017 at UFC 219.[75] Nurmagomedov dominated all three rounds, taking Barboza down repeatedly and dominating the fight with ground and pound. He won the fight by unanimous decision, with scores of 30-25, 30-25 and 30-24.[76] This win also earned him his first Performance of the Night bonus.[77]

UFC Lightweight Champion

Nurmagomedov vs. Iaquinta

A bout with Ferguson had been scheduled for the fourth time and was expected to take place on 7 April 2018 at UFC 223.[78] However, on 1 April 2018, it was reported that Ferguson had injured his knee and was to be replaced by Max Holloway.[79][80] On 6 April, Holloway was pulled from the fight after the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) declared him unfit to compete due to extreme weight cutting, and replaced by Al Iaquinta. Iaquinta’s inclusion in the fight was controversial: the UFC’s first choice to replace Holloway, Anthony Pettis, weighed in 0.2 pounds over the championship limit of 155 pounds and did not choose to re-weigh, and its second choice, Paul Felder, was rejected by NYSAC because he was not in the UFC’s rankings at the time of the fight. Only Nurmagomedov was eligible to win the championship, as Iaquinta also weighed in 0.2 pounds over the championship weight limit.[81] Nurmagomedov dominated the fight and won via unanimous decision, with scores of 50-44, 50-43 and 50-43, and became the UFC Lightweight Champion.[82]

Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor

Nurmagomedov and his father meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin four days after his win against McGregor

On Friday, 3 August 2018, the UFC announced that Nurmagomedov would make his first defence of his lightweight title against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on October 6 in Las Vegas.[83] In the fight, Nurmagomedov won the first two rounds, but lost the third round to McGregor. It was the first time Nurmagomedov lost a round in his UFC career.[84][85] He managed to defeat McGregor in the fourth round via submission.[86] After the contest, Nurmagomedov scaled the Octagon and tried to attack McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis, which resulted in a brawl between the two teams.[87] After the bout against the Irishman, Khabib improved his record to 27-0 which was then the longest win streak in UFC history. The event drew 2.4 million pay-per-view buys, the most ever for an MMA event.[88]

Nurmagomedov vs. Poirier

In June 2019, Nurmagomedov signed a new multi-fight contract with the UFC.[89] In the first fight of his new deal, Nurmagomedov made the second defence of his title against interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier on 7 September 2019 in the main event at UFC 242.[90] He won the fight via a rear naked choke submission in the third round.[91] The win unified both titles and earned Nurmagomedov his second Performance of the Night bonus award.[92] He and Poirier swapped shirts after the fight as a show of respect. In his post-fight interview Nurmagomedov said that he would be selling the shirt Poirier gave him and donating the proceeds to Poirier’s charity.[93] The shirt sold for $100,000 and the donation was matched by UFC president Dana White.[94]

Nurmagomedov vs. Gaethje

Nurmagomedov was scheduled to defend his title against Tony Ferguson on 18 April 2020 at UFC 249. This was the fifth time that a fight between the pair had been scheduled, and both fighters were on 12-fight win streaks in the UFC.[95] However, Nurmagomedov was unable to leave Russia because of restricted air travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and so was removed from the card.[96] Ferguson instead faced top contender Justin Gaethje for the interim UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 249, which was postponed to 9 May. Gaethje won the fight by fifth-round TKO, thus ending Ferguson’s win streak and securing himself a shot at the undisputed title against Nurmagomedov.[97]

Nurmagomedov faced Gaethje in a unification bout on 24 October 2020 in the main event at UFC 254.[98][99][100] Nurmagomedov won the fight via technical submission with a triangle choke in the second round to defend and re-unify the UFC Lightweight Championship. In his post-fight interview, Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from mixed martial arts. He explained that he had promised his mother that he would not continue to fight without his late father, «No way I’m going to come here without my father. It was first time after what happened with my father, when UFC called me about Justin, I talk with my mother three days. She doesn’t want me to go fight without my father but I promised her it was going to be my last fight. If I give my word, I have to follow this. It was my last fight here.»[101][102] This win earned him the Performance of the Night award.[103] Daniel Cormier claimed in an episode of DC & Helwani, after the fight, that Khabib had said he chose the triangle choke instead of an arm bar in order to prevent Gaethje from being injured.[104][105]

Retirement and vacation of the UFC Lightweight Championship

Despite attempted negotiations to bring him back for one more fight, UFC president Dana White announced on 19 March 2021 that he had accepted Nurmagomedov’s decision to retire and that the UFC Lightweight Championship had been officially vacated.[106]

On July 1, 2022 Nurmagomedov was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on the International Fight Week in Las Vegas.[107]

MMA promoter

Following his retirement, Nurmagomedov purchased the Gorilla Fighting Championship (GFC), a Russian-based MMA promotion, for $1 million[108] – going on to rename it as the Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC).[109]

MMA coach and cornerman

Since retiring in October 2020, Nurmagomedov has been an active coach with American Kickboxing Academy head coach Javier Mendez. He currently coaches and corners current UFC Lightweight Champion Islam Makhachev, Zubaira Tukhugov (UFC), Tagir Ulanbekov (UFC), Islam Mamedov (Bellator), Gadzhi Rabadanov (Bellator), Saygid Izagakhmaev (ONE Championship) and cousins Abubakar Nurmagomedov (UFC), Umar Nurmagomedov (UFC), Usman Nurmagomedov (Bellator), and Belal Muhammad at UFC 280.[110][111][112][113]

Fighting style

Nurmagomedov employs a wrestling-based style of relentless pressure against his opponents, often described as «mauling». Using a variety of wrestling and judo/sambo takedowns, he forces his opponents against the cage, and locks up their legs and an arm to prevent them from escaping. From this position, he exhausts his opponents by forcing his weight against them and attacks with measured strikes his opponents are often unable to defend. This was one of his many signature styles that he used to deploy to advance towards his finishing move.[114] Throughout his career, nineteen of his twenty-nine victories had come by way of either TKO/KO or submission.[115]

Former three-time UFC Heavyweight Champion and two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture praised Nurmagomedov as “brilliant”.[116] MMA Commentator Joe Rogan, a black belt in both 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, said of Nurmagomedov, “He’s the most terrifying lightweight contender in the world,” and “he’s just on such another level [of grappling] that the odds of beating him drop significantly after the first minute-and-a-half.”[117] UFC referee Herb Dean stated Nurmagomedov constantly talks to his opponents during fights.[118]

Personal life

As part of his Dagestani Avar culture, Nurmagomedov frequently wears a papakha hat after fights and during promotional events.[119] He speaks several languages, including Avar, Kumyk, Russian, English, Turkish, and Arabic.[120] As of 2019, Nurmagomedov is a third-year student at the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics.[121] He is an avid football fan and supporter of the clubs Anzhi Makhachkala, Galatasaray, Real Madrid and Liverpool, as well as the Russia national team.[29][122][123]

Nurmagomedov is a Sunni Muslim.[124] In October 2020, The Guardian stated that Nurmagomedov is the second-most popular Muslim athlete in the world, behind only the Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah. The Guardian additionally stated that, since his high-profile victory over McGregor, Nurmagomedov has used his influential status to «further his ultra-conservative worldview».[32] In 2018, Nurmagomedov advocated a crackdown on nightclubs in his home region of Dagestan,[125] and levelled criticism at a rap concert held in Makhachkala, which led to rapper Egor Kreed cancelling his performances in the region.[32] In 2019, Nurmagomedov spoke out against a play held in Dagestan that featured a scene of a scantily-clad woman seducing a man. He described the play as «filth», recommended that there be a governmental investigation into its production, and called for those involved to issue a public apology, which allegedly led to the producer of the play receiving threats on social media.[32][126] In October 2020, Nurmagomedov criticised the President of France Emmanuel Macron in the wake of the murder of Samuel Paty, stating «May the Almighty disfigure the face of this creature and all its followers, who, under the slogan of freedom of speech, offend the feelings of more than one and a half billion Muslim believers. May the Almighty humiliate them in this life, and in the next.»[127][128]

Nurmagomedov has trained with SC Bazarganova in Kizilyurt, Dagestan (2012),[129] K-Dojo, AMA Fight Club in Fairfield, New Jersey (2012), Mamishev Fight Team in Saint Petersburg (2012),[130] Fight Spirit Team in Kolpino, St. Petersburg (2013),[131] and KHK MMA Team in Bahrain (2015), which was funded by Bahraini prince Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa.[132] In 2016, Nurmagomedov co-founded his own team, Eagles MMA, with support from the Dagestani billionaire Ziyavudin Magomedov.[133] After Magomedov was arrested on charges of embezzlement in 2018, Nurmagomedov used his post-fight speech at UFC 223 to appeal to Russian president Vladimir Putin for Magomedov’s release from jail.[32] Nurmagomedov has also hosted a training seminar at the Akhmat MMA fight club that is funded by Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov, who has received criticism from some quarters for his government’s alleged human rights abuses.[32][134][135][136]

In December 2021, Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz publicly offered former UFC rival Tony Ferguson a grappling match against Nurmagomedov.[137]

Family

Nurmagomedov married Patimat in June 2013 and they have three children: a daughter born 1 June 2015, a son born 30 December 2017,[138] and a son born on 22 December 2019.[139] The first son was named Magomed, after Khabib’s great-grandfather.[140] Among Nurmagomedov’s cousins are fellow UFC fighters Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Umar Nurmagomedov, and Bellator fighter Usman Nurmagomedov.[141][142]

In May 2020, Nurmagomedov’s father and long-time trainer Abdulmanap was placed in a medically induced coma after contracting COVID-19 following a heart surgery.[143][144] He died on 3 July 2020 at a clinic in Moscow, at the age of 57.[145][146]

Awards

In October 2018, Nurmagomedov was made an «Honorary Citizen of Grozny» by the mayor of Grozny Ibrahim Zakriev after his victory against McGregor at UFC 229. He was also presented with a Mercedes car by Chechnya’s head Ramzan Kadyrov, funded from the Akhmad Kadyrov Foundation, and his father Abdulmanap was awarded the title of «Honoured Worker of Physical Culture of the Chechen Republic» by Kadyrov.[147]

On 5 December, 2019, Head of the Republic of Dagestan Vladimir Vasilyev awarded Nurmagomedov and his father, Abdulmanap the Order For Services to the Republic of Dagestan for their «significant contributions to sports in Dagestan».[148]

Controversies

Bus attack at UFC 223 Media Day

On 3 April 2018, Nurmagomedov and fellow fighter Artem Lobov had an altercation, in which Nurmagomedov and his entourage cornered Lobov and slapped him multiple times.[149] Lobov is known to be close to Conor McGregor, with whom Nurmagomedov had verbal altercations and trash talk exchanges.[150] Two days later, during promotional appearances for UFC 223, McGregor and his entourage were let into the Barclays Center by credentialed members of his promotional team. They confronted Nurmagomedov, who was on a bus leaving the arena with other «red corner» fighters for UFC 223 onboard, including Rose Namajunas, Al Iaquinta, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Ray Borg, and Michael Chiesa.[151] McGregor ran up alongside the slowly moving bus and then ran past it to grab a metal equipment dolly, which he threw at the bus’s window, before trying to throw other objects in the vicinity.[152] Chiesa and Borg were injured by the shattered glass, and sent to hospital. They were soon removed from the card on the advice of the NYSAC and the UFC’s medical team.[153]

McGregor and others involved initially fled the Barclays Center after the incident.[154] UFC president Dana White said there was a warrant out for McGregor’s arrest, and the NYPD said McGregor was a person of interest.[155] White claimed McGregor told him via text message: «This had to be done.»[156] White said, «You can imagine he’s going to be sued beyond belief,» and denied suggestions that the violence was a stunt intended to generate interest in the UFC.[157] McGregor later turned himself in to a police station, where he faced three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.[158][159] He was further charged with menacing and reckless endangerment at his arraignment and released on $50,000 bail until 14 June 2018.[160][161] Under the bail conditions set by the judge, McGregor was allowed to travel without restriction.[162][163] McGregor later pleaded no contest to a count of disorderly conduct and was ordered to perform five days of community service and attend anger management classes.[164]

Incident at UFC 229

On 6 October 2018, following his victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229, Nurmagomedov jumped over the octagon fence and charged at McGregor’s cornerman, Dillon Danis. Danis had reportedly shouted insults at Nurmagomedov.[165] Soon afterwards, McGregor and Abubakar Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s cousin, attempted to exit the octagon, but a scuffle broke out between them after McGregor punched Abubakar, who then punched him back.[166][167] McGregor was then attacked from behind inside the octagon by two of Nurmagomedov’s cornermen, Zubaira Tukhugov and Esed Emiragaev.[168] Tukhugov, a Chechen fighter, was scheduled to fight on 27 October 2018 at UFC Fight Night: Volkan vs. Smith against Artem Lobov, the McGregor team member who was confronted by Nurmagomedov in April 2018. Tukhugov was removed from the card on 17 October.[169]

Nurmagomedov’s payment for the fight was withheld by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) as a result, pending an investigation into his actions. He appeared at the post-fight interview and apologized to the NSAC, saying he was provoked by McGregor’s trash talk and the UFC 223 bus incident, adding, «You cannot talk about religion. You cannot talk about nation. Guys, you cannot talk about these things. This is very important to me.»[170] He later posted on Instagram that he had warned McGregor that he would pay for everything he had done on 6 October.[171] Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap, later said he did not hold a grudge towards McGregor and invited him to Russia to train.[172]

The NSAC filed a formal complaint against both Nurmagomedov and McGregor, and on 24 October, the NSAC voted to approve a motion to release half of Nurmagomedov’s $2 million fight payout immediately. Both Nurmagomedov and McGregor received indefinite bans until an official hearing would determine the disciplinary outcome of the post-fight brawl.[173] On 29 January 2019, the NSAC announced a nine-month suspension for Nurmagomedov (retroactive to 6 October 2018) and a $500,000 fine. He was eligible to compete again on 6 July 2019.[174] McGregor also received a six-month suspension and $50,000 fine, while Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov each received 12-month suspensions and fines of $25,000. Khabib Nurmagomedov complained about the NSAC’s decisions and stated he no longer wished to compete in the state of Nevada.[175]

In August 2021, Nurmagomedov attracted controversy after an EFC press conference when asked by a reporter about why he does not have ring girls at his promotion. Khabib stated that he did not have an issue with how other promotions went about their operations, stating that they are welcome to do things however they wish, but that he did not see a need for them in his promotion. He said that he personally saw no point to ring girls and their function of parading round cards around before the start of each round. According to him, it is a pointless exercise that makes him «uncomfortable».[176]

During his martial arts career Khabib won a lot of awards and titles in numerous fields like mixed martial arts, sambo, grappling and pankration. His most famous fights that attracted the world’s attention were against Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. The last fight of his career was in October 2020, at UFC 254, in which defeated Justin Gaethje. After this fight he retired form the sport.
