Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the biggest stars in the world of sports, and someone who marked one era of the UFC. He appeared as an anonymous and then said goodbye as GOAT. He gained great fame and met a big number of celebrities.
Yet there is still one person he hasn’t met that he would like to. “I really want to meet Michael Jordan,” Nurmagomedov said on the Full send podcast “I play basketball, but not like Michael Jordan.
This is Dagestan basketball: We wrestle, we run, we do everything”. What attracted Khabib Nurmagomedov's interest was a documentary about Michael Jordan that portrayed his career. The Dagestani doesn’t seem to have known just too much about the big NBA star before that “Michael Jordan, a month ago I watched his documentary because I’m working on my documentary and it was very interesting to watch,” Nurmagomedov said.
“My friend advised me, ‘You have to watch this. It’s very impressive.’ Before his documentary, I didn’t know about him much. I just knew Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player, and that’s it."
"In Dagestan, we don’t follow the NBA much and it was very impressive for me to watch, and I really want to meet this guy”.
The comical situation in Podcast
There was a positive atmosphere during the podcast, and a particularly comical situation arose when Khabib Nurmagomedov promised to give three sheep to Bob Menery, but on the condition that he introduce him to Michael Jordan.
“I’m going to give him three sheep, but he has to make me meet Michael Jordan,” Nurmagomedov said. “I’m going to give you three sheep and maybe we’re going to give (Kyle Forgeard) free dog”.
It will certainly not be too much of a problem to put together such two big stars, and we would not be surprised to see Khabib Nurmagomedov and Michael Jordan together soon. Two big stars together! It would look impressive
