Khabib Nurmagomedov is an intriguing dude. Sure, he’s an absolute killer in the cage, and has amassed an impressive win streak by beating the crap out of opponents, but he’s also a devout Muslim who sometimes won’t get too close to female fans if they’re not dressed properly. That sort of religious conviction in a fighter is admirable, and certainly, in these turbulent political times, it would do us some good to have a UFC champ that would help the masses know that being a Muslim isn’t a bad thing.
But I digress.
UFC 209 will have Nurmagomedov take on Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight belt, so the UFC has given these lads the “Countdown” treatment. Watch and enjoy.
