Khabib Nurmagomedov is all about the fans. So much so, that “The Eagle” obliged when one admirer asked the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight contender to punch him square in the gut for giggles.
And as you can see in the video embedded above, the fan couldn't handle Khabib’s power, despite the fact that Nurmagomedov seemingly didn’t give him all he had.
Hopefully “The Eagle” had him sign a waiver.
Nurmagomedov has been on the mend since falling ill prior to his scheduled interim title fight against Tony Ferguson, which was set to co-headline UFC 209 back in March (details here).
The cancellation of the bout was the third time a proposed matchup between he and Tony fell through.
The 155-pound stalwart is inching closer to a return to the Octagon, as he recently hinted at a return in November with UFC returns to Madison Square Garden in New York. And if he had his say, “El Cucuy” will be standing across from him once the cage door slams shut.
