Khabib’s Team Denies Reports That He Owes $3 Million In Tax: “The Information Is Inaccurate”

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s team has denied claims suggesting that the UFC Hall of Famer owes Russia’s Federal Tax Service more than $3 million.

Earlier reports indicated that the former lightweight world champion had several accounts frozen, including those linked to his MMA promotion Eagle FC and a charitable organization, allegedly due to owing 306 million rubles, equivalent to $3.3 million.

However, according to a statement from Nurmagomedov’s team reported by TASS, a Russian news agency, these reports are deemed “inaccurate”:

The information about tax debt is inaccurate.
Khabib continues to engage in business projects and develop them.

The investigation into Nurmagomedov was allegedly sparked by his transfer of ownership in several businesses, with relatives and associates reportedly assuming control in some cases.

The Russian tax authorities then – allegedly – found irregularities in documents related to the closure of these businesses – prompting further scrutiny of the former MMA star’s financial activities.

Since retiring from MMA with an undefeated record of 29-0, Nurmagomedov has ventured into various business endeavors, including dietary supplements, restaurants, hotels, and his own MMA promotion.

He remains one of the wealthiest figures in the world of MMA, with a reported net worth of $40 million.
