Video: Khabib Nurmagomedov, Cristiano Ronaldo swap gifts, call each other ‘bro’

New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender, Khabib Nurmagomedov, got to rub elbows with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo over the weekend, which (of course) made its way onto social media for your viewing pleasure.

Ronaldo is no stranger to UFC talent.

Nurmagomedov, who fights Tony Ferguson for the interim title this April (details), was gifted a signed jersey. In return, the Portuguese heartthrob got a furry hat. I know some people claim the papakha is not a hat and I unapologetically reject said claim because I’m an American and ignorance is my god-given right.

I’m not sure where “The Eagle” will be hanging his new swag, but I doubt it’s going in that Dagestani man cave, because he doesn’t want his pet bear (see him here) to use it for an afternoon snack.

Nurmagomedov (25-0) was last seen beating the snot out of Edson Barboza at UFC 219 back in December and with a win over “El Cucuy,” could move on to fight Conor McGregor this fall.
