Khabib Nurmagomedov trained at the American Kickboxing Academy with one of Daniel Cormier's best young wrestling prodigies.
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Chase Saldate
At the American Kickboxing Academy, every day is a new challenge. That's also one contributing factors to the success of Daniel Cormier and Khabib Nurmagomedov, who are in a state of constant competition. In the video above, you can see Khabib wrestle one of Daniel Cormier's best students.
This video shows the extent of the Russian's talent, who, once on the ground, is a real monster. For his part, Chase Saldate was able to hold his own, almost managing to take down the UFC lightweight champion. An experience that can only be beneficial for Chase.
Khabib 'The Eagle' Nurmagomedov
As the undisputed and unbeaten UFC Lightweight Champion, Russia's Khabib Nurmagomedov is not far from putting an end to the debate over who is the best lightweight fighter of all time. The Eagle, who arrived in the ranks of the elites in 2012, literally rolled over all of his opponents, and eventually secured a title fight against Al Iaquinta in 2018. He then won the belt by unanimous decision.
The Russian now has two title defences in his trophy cabinet, both of which were acquired by submission, against Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. Khabib, 31, has 28 wins and no losses to his name. If he is able to maintain his undefeated record, he could well retire from the sport, and claim the title of the best fighter of all time.
