Khabib Nurmagomedov returns to Makhachkala
Dagestani greeted him like a hero.
Daghestanian mixed martial artist Khabib Nurmagomedov has arrived in Makhachkala following a tournament in the UAE’s Abu Dhabi where he had won the UFC Lightweight Championship, having defeated an American Dustin Poirier.
REN TV reports the professional athlete came in a private jet. As soon as he got off the plane, he spoke to the media. He said he had been surprised by Poirier’s “physical shape” and “fighting technique,” however most of his moves had been predictable. That’s why Nurmagomedov managed to win.
The TV-channel points out that Makhachkala citizens greeted Nurmagomedov like a hero.
