Khabib Nurmagomedov Refuses To Take A Picture With A Barcelona Fan Until He Says 'Hala Madrid'

Khabib Nurmagomedov Refuses To Take A Picture With A Barcelona Fan Until He Says 'Hala Madrid'

Khabib Nurmagomedov refused to take a picture with a Barcelona fan until he said 'Hala Madrid'.

Nurmagomedov hilariously forced a Barcelona supporter to say 'Hala Madrid' in order to get a photo with the UFC lightweight champion.

Despite Nurmagomedov being a Real Madrid fan, he has an impressive knowledge of Liverpool's storied history while calling the Premier League the best league in world football.

"I think I am not only a fan; I think I know [football] history. English Premier League, for me, is the best league in the world. I follow everything," he said.

The 27-0 fighter then went on to recall watching Liverpool's 2005 Champions League final victory against AC Milan.

"I remember when I was a kid in 2005 when I watched Liverpool versus Milan, in Dagestan. We had a big screen TV on the beach, thousands of people [were] watching this match," he added.

"And when they were losing after the first half 3-0, and I really believed, 'They have to come back, they have to come back' because I liked the team.

"It was a very good team, but right now they have a very good team too. I watch all the Champions League matches and Liverpool. But I'm a big fan of Real Madrid.

"But I like English Premier League, even if the worst teams are playing, they have the best games."
