Khabib Nurmagomedov, who will face Justin Gaethje on Saturday at UFC 254 for the lightweight champion's belt, has received support from Cristiano Ronaldo.
After 13 months of waiting, the Russian fighter, boss of the category, will make his return to the octagons. It will be on the famous “Fight Island” of Abu Dhabi, which hosts several fights in recent months. On Saturday, Conor McGregor's striker in October 2018 and undefeated in 28 MMA fights, is about to face a strong opponent.
Cristiano Ronaldo knows this and has posted a message of support for his friend Khabib Nurmagomedov. “Of course my brother Khabib will win inch'allah”, confided the Portuguese star who plays at Juventus Turin and is currently in quarantine because positive for Covid-19, during a live Instagram.
As a reminder, Khabib remains on a victory against Dustin Poirier in September 2019. He was initially scheduled to face Tony Ferguson but this fight has been postponed 5 times. It is therefore against Justin Gaethje, considered one of the best UFC fighters on the planet, that he will make his return on Saturday.
