‘He’s your friend, huh?’ Mike Tyson Reacts To Khabib Nurmagomedov Wrestling A Bear

Boxing legend Mike Tyson was in awe when he saw the footage of former UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov wrestling a bear as a child.

The undefeated MMA veteran was a guest on Mike Tyson’s Hot Boxin’ podcast.

While many fans around the world have already seen Khabib take on the bear, this was the first time for Tyson, and he had a hilarious reaction to the clip.

“The bear is kicking his ass!” Tyson remarked seconds into the video.

“This is pretty interesting. That bear loves you. If he didn’t love you he’d kill you in three seconds. You see those claws? [acts out being clawed to the face] Three seconds and you’re dead! He’s your friend, huh?” he added.

Nurmagomedov said that the bear was trained in a circus, which is why it was not as violent as wild ones.

He also clarified that he has no intentions of ever returning to the cage as a fighter. The Eagle now spends his time supporting his Dagestani mates who are competing in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

Despite hanging his gloves more than a year ago, Nurmagomedov still hits the gym every day. He credits his lifelong routine for undergoing training sessions daily.
