UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov was forced to decline a fight with Donald Cerrone because of Muslim religion, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a little “fight” with a bear.

Nurmagomedov continued to fuel the fire that he grew up wrestling bears with a recent post on Instagram. In it, the 22-0 former Combat Sambo champion has some fun with a mini bear.

“Met my friend from childhood,” he wrote. “And my best sparring partner ever, and now my hunting belt started.”
