Khabib Gets Hero’s Welcome In Hometown

After a week where he dealt with three different opponents, confrontations with Conor McGregor and his team, and going five rounds with Al Iaquinta, undisputed UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov returned to Dagestan on Monday.

Upon landing, Nurmagomedov was treated with a hero’s welcome, looking more like the Beatles landing in New York City, than a fighter returning home.

Reporter Denis Geyko, caught the victory celebration, which included his father Abdulmanap, performing a traditional folk dance in his son’s honor.

It will be a while until Nurmagomedov will defend his title in the Octagon, as the new lightweight champion, as he will observe Ramadan, beginning on May 16th, ending in June.
