This touching moment between Khabib Nurmagomedov and fan will have you in tears (Video)

A video shows a touching moment between Khabib Nurmagomedov and a fan that will have you feeling all the feels. 

Since his retirement, Khabib Nurmagomedov has still been in the headlines quite a bit. First, it was about whether he would be coming back, then who he would face if he did come back, then that he was not coming back. It is nice to see Nurmagomedov enjoying his time away from the sport and making the most of it. This time he is making the day of a big fan and the video will bring a tear to your eye.

The video shows Nurmagomedov interacting with a young special needs fan. Nurmagomedov is shown hugging this boy who is wearing the same papakha that Nurmagomedov wears each time he steps into the Octagon. Although that papakha is very popular among Dagestan people it has become a sort of trademark for fans of Nurmagomedov.

The future of Nurmagomedov in the UFC is unclear at this time. UFC president Dana White has been pushing hard for Nurmagomedov to return for one more bout. In a recent interview with Sports24ru  Nurmagomedov seemed to put all rumors of this return to rest.

“If we talk about all my business projects, I have so much to do, that is planned and fights are not in these plans,” Nurmagomedov said. “I train for myself. The biggest thing that gives me pleasure is training., but if we talk about the fights, they are not part of my plans. We don’t know what will happen in 2022, 2023, you know, so let’s not talk about it. No one knows what will happen tomorrow.”

If this is the way Nurmagomedov plans to spend his off time, interacting with his fans, running his new Eagle Fighting Championship promotion, and playing soccer, then we should all be pretty happy about it.
