The setting was inside a training facility, possibly the American Kickboxing Academy run by trainer Javier Mendez. Khabib Nurmagomedov and ‘DC’ appeared to be discussing ESPN and UFC PPVs when ‘DC’ was suddenly interrupted by Nurmagomedov. When ‘The Eagle’ said, “Buy? We have a Russian link”, a stunned Cormier asked him, “Do you have a connection? “

Khabib Nurmagomed replied sarcastically, “Never pay for it.”

The rest of the fighters burst into laughter as ‘DC’ reminded Nurmagomedov of his payout and net worth.

Meanwhile, it may not have worked out well with UFC President Dana White, who has increased UFC PPV rates twice since “The Eagle” retired.

Admitting to illegal things can be something that is forgivable, however, Khabib Nurmagomedov is not about this simple life. In addition to blaming him for Mystic Mac’s bias, the Russian did more than enough to refer UFC big boss Dana White.

He once tried to illegally broadcast a UFC event to his fans with Dana White near him. This happened earlier last year when ‘The Eagle’ joined the UFC president at UFC Apex in March.
