Nurmagomedov is one of the best fighters of all time.
He had massive wrestling skills and a fantastic ground game. He defended his title three times and earned 13 victories in the UFC.
He finished fighters like Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Justin Gaethje, Edson Barboza, Rafael Dos Anjos, and many other notable names. He is the first Muslim to win a UFC title.
He became very popular after defeating McGregor.
Mustafa, meanwhile, has many references to Islam. The artist will interview Nurmagomedov and moderate an open Q&A with the crowd on stage.
