Khabib Nurmagomedov sat down with boxing legend Mike Tyson on Friday to record an episode of Tyson’s Hotboxin podcast.
The UFC sensation, who retired at the top of MMA last year, seemed thrilled to have the opportunity to sit down with the former undisputed heavyweight champion.
Former UFC two-weight champion Henry Cejudo co-hosts the podcast with Tyson and posted a video showing them together.
An upset Khabib then posted pictures with the caption: “In a way, I will comment on my emotions today, but not now.
“For now, I will share photos.
“It was good to see you legend – Mike Tyson.”
The podcast has yet to be released, but it will be interesting to see if it contains a discussion of Conor McGregor’s recent words.
The bitter rivalry between the two has descended to new levels of ugliness when the Irishman this week appeared to mock the Russian over the death of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.
Khabib tweeted in the wake of Dustin Poirier’s win over McGregor at UFC 264, saying “good always beats bad” as the Irishman continually attacked Poirier and his wife, Jolie.
McGregor then said in a since-deleted post: “Covid is good and the father is bad?”
