Unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin is described as a former UFC champion as the “toughest challenge in the bantamweight division.”


In the world of mixed martial arts and in his native Dagestan, Khabib Nurmagomedov has made an everlasting impression. Many people have been inspired by the former UFC champion’s accomplishments and dedication to his profession.His younger brother, Umar Nurmagomedov, is also succeeding in the MMA scene. The Dagestani is an unbeaten boxer with a perfect 16-0 record. All of “Young Eagle’s” opponents have been defeated by him, and he has achieved finishes in three of the four fights. Many in the MMA community see him as a potential champion because of his versatility in all facets of the sport.

One of the most thrilling categories in the UFC is the bantamweight class, which is taking shape. The division has a wealth of quality, with several strong contenders, developing young players, and seasoned veterans.

The unbeaten cousin of the Dagestani, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s trainer Javier Mendez, thinks “Young Eagle” has everything it takes to become a future champion.

At UFC 288, retired former UFC champion Henry Cejudo will make a comeback to fight Aljamain Sterling. He recently asserted that Umar Nurmagomedov is the fighter who poses the greatest threat at 135 pounds:

The most dangerous person is Umar. Umar Nurmagomedov, who weighs 135 pounds, presents the biggest challenge of any of the cats I encounter, including myself. He is versatile; he can wrestle, hit, box, and more. He wants to follow in the footsteps of his brother [Khabib Nurmagomedov] and cousin who have already won major championships.
Nurmagomedov expressed his delight at the former UFC champion’s recognition of his abilities by writing on Twitter:

“@HenryCejudo Triple C is aware. I appreciate it so much, champ, and best of luck.

Who will Khabib Nurmagomedov’s undefeated cousin fight next?

The following fight, between Umar Nurmagomedov and Merab Dvalishvili, is anticipated by the UFC.

Dvalishvili, though, turned down the UFC’s invitation to square off against Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin on May 13. Since Dvalishvili declined the fight due to an injury, the UFC plans to replace it with a July date, according to MMA writer Aaron Bronsteter.

Dvalishvili will need time to recover from his injury, but “Young Eagle” is still determined to challenge the Georgian next:

UFC @danawhite offered me the main event on May 13, which I accepted to face Merab. I wished him a good recovery, but I was waiting to fight him until June or July.
