Khabib Nurmagomedov and Ronaldo Nazario are legends of their respective sports
Khabib Nurmagomedov got back to playing football with his friends once again. The Dagestani recently shared a video on Instagram where he can be seen slotting a goal into a futsal net.
However, there was more to it, as the way he scored the goal and eventually celebrated were largely based on Brazilian football legend Ronaldo.
Khabib rounded the goalkeeper in a typical ‘Ronaldo’-esque fashion and scored. Ronaldo has scored almost 88 goals in his entire career by rounding the goalkeeper.
Following his goal, Khabib also brought out Ronaldo’s finger-wagging celebration.
The Eagle also mentioned Ronaldo in his caption, which read (translated to English):
“Who remembers @ronaldo 2008, who scored a little, but still with firepower @fc_legion_05 i need motivation brothers.”
Following this Ronaldo himself left a comment on Khabib’s Instagram post. He posted several ‘applaud’ emojis, which garnered over 30000 likes.

Khabib is currently busy with his coaching stint. He is anticipating a very busy and happening July 2021, which will feature fellow Dagestanis Islam Makhachev, Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Usman Nurmagomedov across various promotions.
He is already 4-0 up in his coaching career, and will be looking forward to extending the record.
