When Mike Tyson Had An Incredible Reaction To Khabib Nurmagomedo's Weigh In

Mike Tyson cut an animated figure when Khabib Nurmagomedov clashed with Abel Trujillo at a UFC weigh-in.

Nurmagomedov vs. Trujillo served as a 158.5lbs bout on the under-card of UFC 160 back in May 2013.

The bout was supposed to be a lightweight contest though the Russian fighter missed weight with emotions running high when he faced off against the American.

The two butted heads before Nurmagomedov angrily shoved Trujillo as Dana White intervened and stopped the incident from escalating.

Tyson, meanwhile, loved it as he smiled and raised his arms in appreciation in a hilarious sequence.

'Iron' Mike knows a thing or two about intense face-offs.

Nurmagomedov went onto dominate Trujillo to record his 20th professional MMA victory and his fourth win inside the famed Octagon.

He won by unanimous decision and recorded an impressive 21 takedowns in three rounds - a UFC record.

Khabib will be back in the octagon this weekend, for the first time in over a year, when he takes on Justin Gaethje in the main event at UFC 254.

The Eagle will be looking to unify the lightweight division, with Gaethje holding the interim title after beating Tony Ferguson earlier this year.

The Russian had another interesting weigh in on Friday and MMA fans became worried about Khabib after he looked relieved to have made weight.

Some fans went even further and suggested that the unbeaten fighter didn't even make weight and claimed a conspiracy theory to let him fight nonetheless, especially with the fight in Abu Dhabi.

The 32-year-old was meant to take on Ferguson earlier in the year but the Covid-19 outbreak stopped him from travelling out of Russia.

Khabib's weight could be a problem on Saturday night if he did have issues making weight.
