Crazy Underwater Brawl Ensues After Water Polo Coach Does Khabib 'Eagle Jump' Into Pool

A crazy underwater brawl over in Russia saw a water polo coach jump into the pool and perform a two-footed lunge on an opposition player.

The game between Moskvich and Kazan got far more heated than the fun, entertaining game you're used to getting involved in on your all-inclusive holiday in Benidorm.

One player started having some beef with the coach stood on the side and then after he is alleged to have swore at him - he threw the ball in his direction - only for it to hit a female official.

In footage posted on social media, the coach then channels his inner Khabib Nurmagomedov by jumping into the poll and right onto the player.

Blows were then thrown underwater and the match had to be abandoned as a result.

The scenes were basically just a rehash of the madness that ensued after the UFC 229 main event in Las Vegas - only this time water was involved.

Immediately after the bout, we found out why the 30-year old is nicknamed 'The Eagle' when he jumped out of the Octagon and attacked members of Conor McGregor's camp, specifically Dillon Danis.

They don't call him the Eagle for nothing! Khabib's antics came as a result of the many insults McGregor aimed at him, his religion and his family in the build-up to this fight. Of course, we can't forget the bus attack in Brooklyn back in April, too.

After Khabib jumped the cage, an incensed McGregor climbed up and threw a punch at one of Khabib's team, with even more carnage occuring when some of the Russian's entourage stormed the Octagon and attacked the 'Notorious' fighter.
