Khabib has grown up in Russia. He is well and truly aware of what a street fight is and what it entails. Khabib claims to have been in numerous street fights both in a gym and also legitimately out on the street. He then moved to the UFC where he’s been absolutely dominant and owned his entire weight class. This shows he knows how to do it in from of a set of judges and also knows how to get down and dirty if required.

 

How did Khabib Nurmagomedov react?

Khabib in an interview right after the press conference said, ” I have real Mexican gangsters with me. I have real Kazakhstan gangsters with me. I have both sides.” Tony isn’t a street fighter. Americans don’t street fight. Khabib added, “ I have American people too. I don’t like it when people try to he fake.”
