Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov sent a message of support to Kamaru Usman ahead of his Colby Covington rematch.
“Really good to see you, brother,” Nurmagomedov told Usman. “Play as well as smash this guy [Colby Covington] and defend the belt. I really want him to smash this guy like the first time.
“Let’s go, Kamaru. Pound-for-pound best in the world. Kamaru Usman, Nigerian Nightmare, African Power. Let’s go, brother! I’m with you,” Nurmagomedov continued.
