Khabib Nurmagomedov opens state-of-the-art training facility in Dagestan for local youth

Recommended Posts

Khabib Nurmagomedov has opened his own gym in his homeland of Dagestan.

The UFC lightweight champ, along with his father and trainer Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, opened the facility earlier this week in the capital city of Makhachkala to provide a training ground for Dagestani athletes and help the younger generation become professional fighters.

The facility is under Nurmagomedov’s father’s name, the “Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov Martial Arts School,” The gym boasts training mats, punching bags, an octagon, weight rooms, and even a basketball court with mats, where Nurmagomedov is often seen playing his own version of “Dagestani Basketball.”

“I was very excited about this,” Nurmagomedov told RT Sport. “Today, we opened this gym. This is like dreams come true, and here you can train muay Thai, jiu-jitsu, grappling, combat sambo, MMA, everything what you want. Like you guys see, a lot of kids here, and I think it’s going to be full all day.

“This gym is going to be full, a lot of kids going to be training here. You know, this is why I opened this gym. I want a lot of young generation guys training here and become professional fighters.”

Nurmagomedov’s father gives a tour of the facility in the video below:
