MMA great Khabib Nurmagomedov might not be thinking of a return to the UFC at the moment but he showed off his football skills in a recent charity match.

Who won the fight at UFC 254?

Clarence Seedorf, a Dutch legend, and celebrity chef CZN Burak were also part of the match. The trio had a lot of fun in this game and the highlights of the same certainly showcased that.

Khabib, who retired from MMA after defeating Justin Gaethje, has spoken about playing football in the past.

He is one of the greats in the history of the sport and there has been talk of him making a return to the UFC for a 30th and final.

Khabib might not be thinking of that for now but he certainly was quick to bring up his football skills with another great.

How’s that Zlatan?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is another star that Khabib has tagged in the past. Ibra is considered as one of the greatest footballers of all-time and has played for some of the biggest clubs in the world.

The Swedish star is currently playing for AC Milan and is hoping to lead them to the Serie A title. Khabib tagged the great in a post which showcased the Russian scoring an incredible goal.

It is difficult to say when this took place but there is no doubt Khabib has scored a few more screamers in his career.

The goal can be seen in this post from 434 and this is similar to some of the brilliant ones scored by Zlatan.

It is to be seen what is next for Khabib in his career. He has achieved a lot but that 30th fight could be tempting to end his career on a real high.
