UFC news: Khabib Nurmagomedov teaches us how to pronounce his name correctly

  • Alex Batt

Khabib Nurmagomedov is a well-known UFC fighter, but as you can tell from just looking at his name, it’s not the easiest to pronounce.

Well, luckily for us, we finally have the answer to how to pronounce it properly, and we can safely say the majority of us have been saying it wrong all along.

The Russian has made quite the name for himself over the past few years, from all his controversies alongside Conor McGregor, to the hype building up for his fight at UFC 249 against Tony Ferguson… should it go ahead of course.

There’s a major cloud hanging over the fight due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and despite UFC president Dana White being adamant that the show will go on as planned, there are major doubts. 

Even if it does go ahead, it will almost certainly go ahead behind closed doors, which would be a massive shame for fans of the UFC as it’s arguably one of the biggest fights in the company’s history.

Alas, White is adamant on getting this fight going, no doubt due to the fact it’s previously been cancelled four times prior.

But going back to the point at hand, how do we actually pronounce Khabib’s name properly?

Well, sit back and watch this clip as the man himself teaches us how to say his name.

So there you have it, that’s how you correctly pronounce The Eagle’s name!

Were you like us and saying it wrong all along? Or were you one of the unique ones who already knew how to say it properly?

Either way, next time you’re with your mates, you can impress them with your pronunciation of Khabib’s name.

That is whenever we’re allowed to socialise with our friends again.
