Khabib Nurmagomedov is famous for many things – major one being a saying: “If Sambo was easy, it would be called jiu-jitsu” .
Initially there were rumblings about Nurmagomedov being given a title shot but Conor McGregor put a damper on that and got the title shot all to himself at the upcoming historic New York set UFC 205.
Nurmagomedov is still in though, he will be facing Michael Johnson.
To help prepare for the bout, he’s enlisted the help of a bjj legend – Renzo Gracie.
Renzo made good fun out of the famous Khabib comment regarding bjj:
Joe Rogan and his fight companion bunch agree that Nurgomedov is made of something special
Khabib is also famous for his “crazy” russian hat
