Khabib started practicing freestyle wrestling at the age of 6. He was coached by his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov – one of the best judo and combat sambo specialists in Dagestan. Khabib’s grandfather Magomed was a freestyle wrestler as well – so it’s a fact that Khabib had it all in the blood from the start.

According to his father, knowledge of these techniques is a key to Khabib’s success in the MMA, it makes him more flexible than his opponents.

Khabib loves football (soccer). Since he was little, Khabib always enjoyed watching football games (he started watching since the 1994 World Cup). Before he injured his knee, he would play a lot as well.

His favorite team is Anzhi Makhachkala from where he is from. Khabib is also a long time Real Madrid fan and good friends with one of the most popular players in the world Cristiano Ronaldo.

Khabib is very religious. He is a devout Muslim, and he never fights during the holy month of Ramadan. Khabib fasts during that time and only trains late in the evening and at night. Khabib doesn’t drink alcohol at all times.

He is a big fan of Fedor Emelianenko. Fedor is the most popular and respected MMA fighter among the Russians. They met for the first time in 2004 at the combat sambo competition in Makhachkala “Dagestan Open” which Fedor won. Since then, Khabib followed Fedor’s career and watched all of his MMA fights. In one of the interviews, Khabib said that Fedor is part of the reason why loves MMA and why he choose MMA over Olympic sports.
