Back in the United States, readying for his long awaited return to the UFC, Khabib Nurmagomedov is staying humble, despite his super-star status, and mopping up the mats after a training session at the American Kickboxing Academy.
The gesture has pleased AKA founder and head coach Javier Mendez so much, that he couldn’t help but take a photo and share his thoughts on his official Instagram account.
Mendez said, “Stay Humble @khabib_nurmagomedov and even when he wins @ufc Gold Humble he will stay.”
