Have you ever stopped and asked yourself – what would it be like to grapple with Khabib Nurmagomedov? Are his pressure game and his humble attitude as great as they are said to be?
Well, former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has the chance to train with Khabib first-hand.
Cormier certainly knows.
In the past, Cormier has claimed that Khabib was the strongest person he has ever felt and despite himself being a former heavyweight champion.
“Look at Dustin Poirier, how good he looked against Dan Hooker, and look at what Khabib did to him. Dustin went between rounds and said, ‘I can’t get him off me.’ This is Dustin Poirier who is one of the bigger lightweights in the entire world.
“He’s just a beast man. You felt it, I felt it — when I grab a guy that fights at 155 and I go, ‘man, he feels strong,’ it’s crazy. That should not happen. He should not feel strong to me whenever I grab him, but he is.”
