Arguably the best soccer player on the planet, Cristiano Ronaldo showed his support for UFC Lightweight Champion Habib Nurmagomedov before the latter defended his title against Justin Gaetje at UFC 254
Referring to Nurmagomedov as his “brother,” Ronaldo said he believed the “Eagle” would emerge victorious again.
Therefore, the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo supports Habib Nurmagomedov before his fight against Jaithji on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi is not a surprise.
“Of course, Habib will win, of course!” Ronaldo said in a live broadcast session on Instagram. Brother! on God `s will!
Ronaldo, the star of the Italian club Juventus, who is currently recovering in Italy after being diagnosed with the Coronavirus earlier this week, has been friends with Habib Nurmagomedov for a few years now, and his history dates back to the time he previously played with Real Madrid, the club that he Nurmagomedov also encourages him.
Habib Nurmagomedov, a football fan and fan of Real Madrid as well as his hometown club Anzi Makhachkala, received a signed shirt from Ronaldo in 2018, when the Portuguese star was playing for Real Madrid. The two stars have been friends ever since.
Friendship ronaldo and lover
Cristiano Ronaldo follows mixed martial arts regularly and even included it in his training regime during his time in Madrid. Not only is Habib, but Ronaldo also got to know Russia’s arch-rival, Conor McGregor, and he visited the famous Irish gym in 2017. However, given that Ronaldo was a strong supporter of Habib after his recent victory in UFC 229 against McGregor, he is unlikely to meet Portuguese Ronaldo and Irish Connor anymore.
Even if Ronaldo is not a friend of a lover and has to choose the winner of the battle from a neutral perspective, it’s really hard to bet against the undefeated Russian. With 28 wins and zero losses, Habib will definitely set out as the favorite to win the fight against Jaithji this weekend in Abu Dhabi.
