Fans express their reactions as an old video clip of Shavkat Rakhmonov practicing with Khabib Nurmagomedov is broadcast on X. “He was getting bored to death,” they think.

The internet is currently circulating a video that shows Shavkat Rakhmonov, a contender for the welterweight division in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, working under the direction of Khabib Nurmagomedov a few years ago.

An old video of ‘Nomad’ working out with Nurmagomedov was recently uploaded to the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) page known as ‘Spinnin Backfist’ on X. ‘The Eagle’ was shown in the video demonstrating his mastery of combining wrestling and striking methods in a fluid manner.

The film piqued the curiosity of a large number of amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, which resulted in a wide range of replies.

One supporter wrote:

“How is it possible for Shavkat to lose? As far as I can tell, his game is completely flawless. He is a fantastic grappler and has a chin made of iron. On behalf of the WW division, I will pray.
Someone else wrote:

“Khamzat needs to undergo training with the Khabib team in order to fill up his gas tank… It is not unknown to me that he is also struggling with health problems.

Take a look at some further responses down below:

There is a good chance that he departed because he was becoming quite bored. The good news is that he does not fight like the other people.”Watching clips of Khabib teaching striking is always comedy… and this coming from a Khabib fan”@SpinninBackfist on X is credited for this.

During Rakhmonov’s first year of mixed martial arts competition, the late Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who was the father of the UFC Hall of Famer, was also there in his corner. Immediately after Nurmagomedov’s victory, Rakhmonov can be seen embracing him in a video that is thought to have been taken in 2014.

With his spotless record, Rakhmonov has unquestionably made an impact in the welterweight division. He has won all six of his octagon appearances so far, which is a testament to his effectiveness in the welterweight level. In his most recent bout, which took place at UFC 296 in December 2023, he prevailed via submission over Stephen Thompson, who had previously challenged for the title.

Shavkat Rakhmonov emerges as the top bet for potential showdown with Leon Edwards

Bettors believe that Shavkat Rakhmonov has the best chance of unseating Leon Edwards as the reigning champion of the welterweight division.

A new report by Low Kick MMA reveals that Edwards is a +180 underdog in a prospective bout against Rackmonov. This is despite the fact that Edwards has a strong track record as a champion, which includes victories over Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. During this time, the wagering odds for ‘Nomad’ were -210, making it the favorite.
