Khabib Nurmagomedov Reveals Brutal UFC 254 Weigh-Cut In New Video

Making weight has always been a challenge for Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was once rushed to hospital after the process went badly.

Now a new video shows that his most recent cut ahead of a showdown with Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 was also a grueling test for the reigning champion, both physically and mentally.

What makes it all the more remarkable is taking into account the fact that Nurmagomedov had also been suffering from the mumps and a broken toe in the lead-up to the fight, not to mention the death of his beloved father and coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov earlier in the year, yet he still emerged victorious against Gaethje via a second round triangle choke submission.
