Report: Khabib Nurmagomedov posts video mocking homeless people

A video is making the rounds that apparently came from the UFC lightweight champion’s Instagram, showing his cousin teasing homeless people with money in exchange for push-ups.

There are ways to go about being charitable if that’s something a celebrity wants to do. Many donate their time and resources to larger organizations, making appearances at hospitals, classrooms, or public events to support a cause. Some even go so far as to start their own foundations, becoming noted philanthropists along with their other achievements.

Whether it’s something grand, or even something as simple as Daniel Cormier coaching high school wrestling and donating his salary to the rest of the staff, there are plenty of good ways to give back to the community.

This ain’t it.

The reigning UFC Lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov reportedly uploaded the following video to his Instagram recently. The post seems to show his cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov apparently teasing two homeless men with the promise of money in exchange for push-ups. At one Abubakar holds a bill out towards a man and snatches it away as the man reaches for it, before demanding that he do more push-ups to earn it.

The video looks to have been deleted soon after posting. But, nothing truly gets deleted from the internet. For a man who has often spoke about the importance of his legacy, this is probably something he doesn’t want to have on it.

Nurmagomedov most recently defeated Al Iaquinta for the vacant UFC lightweight title back at UFC 223 in April. He’s now slated to fight Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on October 6th, in Las Vegas, NV.
