WOAH: Did Khabib Nurmagomedov Just Video Call Cristiano Ronaldo?

January 9, 2021 8:40 pm

Islam Makhachev recently posted a video of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on a video call with an unidentified person on his Instagram story.

Who is that person is not 100% certain, but it looks like none other than the 5-time Ballon D’ Or winner, the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo. Whether it was actually the Juventus star is not yet confirmed, though.

Nurmagomedov and Makhachev were enjoying dinner with their friends. While ‘The Eagle‘ was on call, Makhachev can be heard asking “Cristiano?”

Nurmagomedov and Ronaldo share a close relationship. Ronaldo is a big fan of combat sports and likes to watch Boxing and MMA in his spare time.

Recently, he posted a video of him sharing some fun time with the legendary boxer Gennady Golovkin. The two legends were discussing their respective trades and teaching each other a trick or two.

Currently, Ronaldo is the most popular celebrity on social media, as he surpassed 250 million followers on Instagram. This is quite a remarkable feat, to say the least.

Nevertheless, if it was indeed Cristiano Ronaldo is not totally clarified yet. A confirmation from Nurmagomedov’s side will fix it for a fact. Fans will continue to speculate until the undefeated Dagestani breaks his silence on the matter.

Khabib Nurmagomedov will meet Dana White this month

Nurmagomedov is expected to announce a decision on his fighting future as he is set to meet Dana White in Abu Dhabi, later this month. The Russian announced retirement following his successful title defense at UFC 254 against Justin Gaethje. But there are speculations that the UFC President Dana White might lure the champion back out of retirement.

Makhachev is also without a fight at the moment. The Russian prospect had to pull out of his scheduled bout against Rafael dos Anjos because of an unfortunate injury. He is looking to get back to the lightweight mix and get matched up against a top-ranked opponent.

Who do you think Nurmagomedov was chatting to in the video call? Was it actually Cristiano Ronaldo?
