Report: Khabib Nurmagomedov Uploads Video Of Cousin Mocking Homeless People


UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is less than two months away from defending the gold against former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

The champion has cultivated a positive image for himself ever since gaining popularity as a UFC fighter, but that image may have taken a hit in recent days.

Nurmagomedov allegedly posted a video on his Instagram according to Bloody Elbow, which has since been deleted, showing cousin Abubakar Nurmagomedov offering homeless people money in exchange for doing pushups.

While Nurmagomedov has deleted the video, it didn’t stop a Twitter user by the name of The MMA Bible from putting a copy up, which you can see below:


Abubakar is also a professional MMA fighter and is currently competing in the inaugural season of the PFL, losing to Pavel Kusch at PFL 3. Abubakar does get two homeless men to do push ups in the video, but then snatches the money away from one of the men before demanding they do more push ups.

There has been no comment yet from the UFC, PFL, Khabib or Abubakar on the video.
