When Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov was young, he used to wrestle with some bears in Russia.
UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father, Abdulmanap, explains why he had his son train with bears at nine years old.
“Firstly, a child always wants his father to see what his son is capable of,” Abdulmanap told ToFight.Ru. “It is a pity that there was nothing more interesting when he was younger. In the end, this was a test of character more than exercise.”
