With an unbeaten record of 29-0, the former lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov is arguably the greatest UFC fighter of all time.
His journey from the mountain to UFC is spectacular, to say the least. Khabib grew up in Dagestan, which is not a land of opportunities compared to other parts of the world.
However, many UFC stars have come from that region proving that Khabib's work ethic and mindset play a huge role in his success.
Recently during a fan interaction in Toronto, when Khabib was asked to choose between books and video games, the UFC legend criticized the teenagers "wasting" their time in video games.
"One more thing right now in the world winning our young generation"- Khabib made a bold claim about video games.
"Because they spend hours and hours playing video games. This will kill your game. Maybe this year 2022, I will play maybe 2 hr. I like video games But I say no. because you kill your time."- Khabib continued.
Khabib chose reading over video games despite being a fan of multiple sports since his childhood: "I love reading. It's much better".
After retiring from MMA, Khabib Nurmagomedov is now a coach to many UFC fighters including Islam Makhachev.
