It looks like “The Eagle” recently dodged a bullet.
Following his victory over Darrell Horcher in his return to the Octagon in his most-recent UFC fight back on April 16th at the UFC On FOX event in Tampa, Florida, UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov became the proud owner of a Mercedes AMG GT. A few months later, Nurmagomedov left the car with a friend while he went to San Jose, California to train, only to find out that the same friend crashed the vehicle in a minor accident in Makhachkala, Dagestan.
While Nurmagomedov was in San Jose to resume training at the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) facility, he discovered that the friend he left the car with in his native Dagestan got into an accident on Friday, September 16th and suffered minor injuries in the process. The car too, only suffered minor damages.
“The Eagle’s” father and longtime coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov claimed that the car was barely damaged in the incident. “It’s okay,” he said. “The car is repairable. One lamp was broken, the hood and bumper are damaged. Even the glass is not broken. There is no problem.”
The story made the llocal news in Dagestan due to the popularity of the highly-regarded UFC contender, and you can check out the video from Life.ru below. A still photograph of the damages to the car can be seen above.
