Khabib Nurmagomedov’s former MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz has flat out denied any reports of the former UFC lightweight champion signing with the third-tier football club FC Legion Dynamo. Earlier, reports made headlines that Nurmagomedov, a huge football fan, has finally signed a contract with a football club. In the past, Nurmagomedov has mentioned his interest in competing for a football club. However, the recent news of his association with FC Legion Dynamo is completely false, says Dominance MMA CEO Ali Abdelaziz.
“Fake news.” Ali Abdelaziz said on Twitter in a response to ESPN’s post reporting Nurmagomedov signing with the football club. In another tweet. he urged the team of ESPN to take down the post. “Please take this down,” Abdelaziz captioned.
“A lot of football clubs, they have offered me [a deal]. If some club offered me an interesting offer, I’m going to accept it because it’s my childhood dream. I love football, I’ve been following it since I was a child. It’s my first love.” Nurmagomedov had said in a conversation with the Russian media.
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s first love has always been football. One wonders how good Nurmagomedov could have been, had he trained for football since the beginning of his life.
Be that as it may, he is one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, and will go down as one of the most dominant lightweight champions of the world.
