It is no secret that Khabib Nurmagomedov loves football. We have had the opportunity to see many videos confirming this. A big Real Madrid fan doesn’t want to remain just a fan. Namely, the Dagestani has certain ambitions to play football, and that would be the fulfillment of his boyhood dreams.
In a recent "Q&A" video on his Facebook profile, Khabib commented on the topic of a potential football career. "A lot of football clubs have given me an offer, but I would have to get in football form because football is a bit different in terms of fitness than MMA."
"These are two different sports. But if any of the clubs manage to intrigue me with their offer, I will accept it because it is my boyhood dream. I love football, I have been following it since I was a child and that is my first love, '' Khabib said.
Despite the fact that Khabib was the champion of the world’s strongest MMA promotion, he believes winning the World Cup would be a much bigger accomplishment. '' I think football is much better. The World Cup is held every four years and occupies a very important place in history.
Football is at a different level than MMA." "I love MMA, I love fighting and competing against the best fighters in the world, but football, in my opinion, is the best sport, '' Khabib added.
The Eagle did his last fight at the UFC 254 event.
By choking, he defeated Justin Gaethje in the second round of the fight for the lightweight title. Khabib quickly switched to other activities. He bought the Gorilla Fighting Championship (GFC) promotion and renamed it the Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC).
Among other things, we see him more and more often in the corner of fighters like Umar Nurmagomedov, Usman Nurmagomedov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov. Many are already announcing him as a potential coach of the year. The Dagestani is obviously successful in everything he touches, and it is certain that he would be equally committed to his football career if he really signs for one of the football clubs.
The question is whether now is the right time for him to start his football career, but probably Nurmagomedov is not serious in his intentions, although football is what he loves the most. Nurmagomedov will try to continue his career as a coach, and we will see if he will be so successful in the future
