Khabib just signed with a Russian football club

Ex-MMA star Khabib Nurmagomedov has just signed a contract with a Russian 3rd Division football club.

The former lightweight MMA world champion retired a few months ago, aged just 32. It was following his last fight won in October 2020 that Khabib announced his retirement. He had subsequently indicated his desire to continue his sports career, but this time in another field, football. He therefore accepted the proposal of the Legion Dynamo club which is currently playing in the 3rd division of the Russian championship.

Even though MMA fans would love to see him in the cage again, Khabib Nurmagomedov does not seem ready to return to combat and prefers to focus on his new career as a footballer.
