Khabib Nurmagomedov's Manager Is Angry The Eagle Won't Be UFC 4's Cover Star

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, has claimed that he's seen EA Sport's UFC 4's front cover and he's annoyed that his client isn't the star.

The latest edition of EA Sport's UFC franchise is set to be revealed on July 11th at UFC 251, with the poster for the event showing that the game is sponsoring the show with the 'official reveal' on the poster of the Kamaru Usman vs Gilbert Burns headlined show.

We don't know too much about the game just yet, although it's been reported that boxers Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will be playable characters, in the same way Mike Tyson was in UFC 2.

However via Khaib's manager we now know that the lightweight champion won't be the cover star. Abdelaziz took to Twitter to say "This should be the new cover. This man never lost I know who will be on the new cover. One is good but another has a double digit loses."

The news that someone with 'double digit losses' will be on the cover instead of the undefeated Khabib has led many to believe that BMF champion Jorge Masvidal will be one of the two cover stars.

Masvidal, who had an incredible 2019, hasn't fought this year and isn't expected to make an appearance anytime soon, after a disagreement over money with Dana White.

'Gamebred' might have been in the main event at UFC 251 as he was thought to be next in line for Usman's welterweight title but his dispute stopped that happening.


Alongside Masvidal people are predicting that Israel Adesanya could be on the cover, although some have also said it could be Amanda Nunes.

Khabib's camp's annoyance at not being on the cover will only be furthered by the fact that rival Conor McGregor was the cover star on UFC 2, along with Ronda Rousey.
