Donald Trump Says Khabib Nurmagomedov Is “Probably The Greatest Fighter Of All Time”

Did you know that Donald Trump is a big mixed martial arts (MMA) and UFC fan?
Yes, that’s right. And it appears that he has a “new” favorite when it comes to being the greatest of all time – Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The former US President recently met with Nurmagomedov…
And had some great words to say about “The Eagle”:

Khabib Nurmagomedov, who retired after a RECORD of 29-0, never having lost even a single round, is probably the Greatest Fighter of All Time.

I met him at the UFC event on Saturday night in New Jersey.
A really smart guy – Big things in the future of Khabib!

Trump’s passion about the UFC shouldn’t come as a surprise, as he was one of the early backers of the organization.

He revealed why he supported it when almost no one else wanted to:

Somehow I got to know Dana [White]. And the whole group of people who were into the UFC.
And I respected them and I respected Dana, a lot…

Incredible people, smart people, and good people too.
And they couldn’t get a venue because of the danger.

In those days, the danger [of fighting in MMA] was perceived like, just, death. So, a lot of the athletic commissions wouldn’t do it. And the owners wouldn’t do it.
And they couldn’t get venues and I gave them venues, early on.

And it’s an incredible thing.
Because, both Dana and that great group of investors, they appreciated it.
