Khabib Nurmagomedov was at the Manchester United game over the weekend and he had the opportunity to catch up with the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo.
Now that he’s a retired MMA fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov has the opportunity to enjoy himself and not worry about destroying his opponents inside of the Octagon. Such was the case over the weekend, as Nurmagomedov was on hand for a big English Premier League showdown.
Indeed, Nurmagomedov was at Old Trafford to watch the showdown between Manchester United and Everton. While in town, Nurmagomedov was able to connect with superstar goal-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, and the two even had some fun wrestling, which was awesome to see.
Khabib Nurmagomedov wrestling with Cristiano Ronaldo was priceless to watch
As you can see in the post above, Nurmagomedov shared multiple photos and a video where he and Ronaldo actually stare each other down. To no one’s surprise, the soccer standout cracked first and broke out laughing.
Ronaldo should just be thankful that Nurmagomedov didn’t showcase the same moves he did going up against Conor McGregor from a few years ago. Then he seriously would have been in some big-time trouble.
Nurmagomedov clearly was having a great time, as he also met other Manchester United stars. This included Paul Pogba, who is widely considered one of the best midfielders in all of soccer. Unfortunately for Nurmagomedov, Ronaldo and Pogba, Man United ended up tying with Everton at 1-1.
Regardless of that result, Nurmagomedov isn’t going to let that score bring him down from what was surely one heck of a time over in Manchester. With so many smiles being showcased, it’s clear Nurmagomedov will always be welcomed back to the Theatre of Dreams with open arms down the road.
