Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed his hilarious response when Sir Alex Ferguson asked if he wanted a drink after Manchester United's draw with Everton.
There was a lot of talk about United's number seven shirt on Saturday, and for once it wasn't all about Cristiano Ronaldo, although plenty still was.
Khabib was a surprise guest at Old Trafford for the Premier League game with Everton, and ahead of kick off he posed with the number seven shirt in the stadium.
If the Russian was supporting the home team then he wouldn't have enjoyed what he was watching, especially when Andros Townsend pulled off the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration after scoring the Toffees equaliser.
Most United fans would have been considering reaching for the bottle at full time but, as a devout Muslim, Khabib doesn't drink alcohol.
The former UFC champion was offered a drink by Fergie, and gave a hilarious response that left the United legend retracting his offer.
Explaining why he doesn't drink, Khabib said, "Drinking is not good for me because if I do then I will smash all of you guys up."

"So I said, drinking is not good for me because if I do then I will smash all of you guys up.
"He replied, 'OK, best if you don't drink'." #MUFC #bbcmma pic.twitter.com/rLxcuqUHHn
The 33-year-old wasn't the only guest at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, with Usain Bolt and Patrice Evra also pictured alongside the man who went undefeated throughout his MMA career.
They would have been disappointed to only seen Ronaldo for the final half an hour, after the former Juventus forward was left on the bench at the start of the game.
He wasn't able to have the effect that he would have hoped for and marched down the tunnel at the end of the game.

He will know all too well the powers that the sport has in bringing people together and now he' got his United shirt he can start a new friendship...
Okay maybe that's a bit too far.
At least we know Khabib doesn't need a drink in order to smash McGregor.
