This video has been circulating around the internet recently, and the rumor was that it featured a 9 year old Khabib Nurmagomedov wrestling a bear, and holding his own. This week, Nurmagomedov confirmed that the rumors were true, and it was indeed him wrestling the bear. Nurmagomedov said:
“Yes, I was. It was a secret video and I do not know how that got on the internet. That was long ago, I almost do not remember, I was a boy at the time.”
Khabib Nurmagomedov was just a boy at the time the video was shot, but he now sports a (22-0) record, and is one of the most feared lightweights in the UFC. Several of the top lightweight fighters in the UFC are rumored to be avoiding fights with Nurmagomedov, they know how dangerous he is, and think that it’s only a matter of time until the UFC Lightweight Title is around Khabib Nurmagomedov’s waist.
P.S. The bear has some MMA skills too, he was shooting for single leg takedowns and taking Khabib Nurmagomedov’s back, I was impressed!
