Khabib Nurmagomedov is a mood for every MMA fan aiming to illegally stream UFC 257 on Saturday night.
A video clip posted to Twitter shows a humorous exchange between American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) teammates Daniel Cormier and Nurmagomedov. It serves as a perfect side dish to the ongoing war of threats between UFC President Dana White and illegal streamers.
"ESPN app. Buy. It's only 70 bucks," Cormier explains to his AKA squadron. "Buy?" an inquisitive Nurmagomedov responds. "We have Russian link."
"You have a link? Like you don't have enough money to spend," DC tells Nurmagomedov, the latter of whom retorts, "Never pay for it."
The video ends with Cormier poking fun at Nurmagomedov: "You have so much money. You can't give me 70 dollars?"
White has threatened to take action against illegal streamers broadcasting footage of UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 on Saturday night. The UFC boss claims to have tracked down one potential streamer, going so far as to tap their phone and monitoring their home.
UFC 257 takes place at Etihad Arena on UFC Fight Island in Abu Dhabi on January 23. The pay-per-view card is headlined by Poirier vs. McGregor 2. Keep up with Fightful for all your fight night coverage.
