As hyped MMA fans around the world were when they saw the title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje from UFC 254, we imagine things in the Middle East, in Russia and especially in the Republic of Dagestan, from the Khabib especially must have gotten out of hand.
In the run-up to UFC 254, Khabib’s trainer Javier Mendez shared a photo of a warning sign posted at an entrance to a mall in Dagestan, warning shoppers that the mall would be closed on October 24th for “KHABIB DAY”. And now videos are coming out showing the celebrations that took place after Khabib defeated Gaethje in the second round of their fight.
Farid Muslimov from MMA Tematika shared this video from a gas station in Dagestan where a broadcast was being projected for a large crowd of locals. The fans explode with rapture when their boy Khabib lulls Justin Gaethje to sleep with a smoothly mounted triangular throttle:
The Ruptly news agency has footage from a city where huge crowds from nearby apartment buildings gather to watch the fight. Everyone goes crazy when Nurmagomedov wins and the streets honk as cars full of papakha celebrate in youth.
This last video from Non-Stop MMA shows some of the street parties in Dagestan that went on into the night – made possible by this event, which was the first to be broadcast in a time convenient for Caucasus fans in ages.
Khabib sent a message to his Russian-speaking supporters after the victory.
“To my fans – if I say my fans in Russia, that would be wrong. Let’s all my Russian-speaking fans, ”he said. “A big thank you to all of you. When I started in 2008 and signed to the UFC in 2012, a lot of people didn’t believe. They thought it was impossible. ”
“I’m a simple guy from a mountain village in Dagestani. When I got here my brother said to me, “Google says you are the most talked about person on the planet.” I couldn’t believe it because I didn’t even think about it. I just wanted to become a master under the guidance of my father. I never thought that such a heavy burden would fall on my shoulders. “
“Alhamdullillah (Praise be to God),” he finished. “If you have parents, be close to them. That’s all. I only have one parent left, my mother. I want to spend more time with her. “
