A few days back, the ex-UFC lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov, appeared on Mike Tyson’s renowned Hotboxin’ podcast. Many fans who follow ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’s podcast requested him to bring in the UFC legend at least once to his show. As a result, Tyson rolled out a fiery show with Nurmagomedov and delighted listeners.

This episode garnered vast attention from fans and fighters as everyone got to see a candid Khabib Nurmagomedov. But recently the latter gave an astonishing opinion on Tyson and this podcast. The statement raised many eyebrows across the fight universe.

‘The Eagle’ said, “No. He were not looking through me. I did not like his sight at all.”

“We were at his ranch. His podcast took place on the ranch. I have told them don’t have any smoke equipment on the table. I didn’t like it. I did like more how Cristiano Ronaldo were looking like. Ronaldo were looking like an athlete,” added Nurmagomedov.

Throughout the podcast, ‘Iron’ Mike seemed quite unusual, and he didn’t really come up with points. This left a few fans fuming, and they even expressed their anger on Twitter.

Now, it’s clear that ‘The Eagle’ didn’t enjoy Tyson‘s conduct in the podcast and his above comments are clear proof of the same. Nurmagomedov is pretty assertive about whatever he likes and whatever he doesn’t. That said, he never fails to put up his blunt opinions whenever asked.

Will Khabib Nurmagomedov re-appear on Mike Tyson’s podcast?

Khabib Nurmagomedov gave his take on the podcast, but he didn’t reveal whether he’ll cut ties with Mike Tyson and the Hotboxin’ podcast.

The fans might get to see him again only if Mike Tyson tailors the setup exclusively for the ex-UFC lightweight king. It’ll be interesting to see what happens next as this news is surfacing on social media.
