Watch UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov show off astonishing strength ahead of Gaethje clash as he out-wrestles giant rival
FOOTAGE has emerged of Khabib Nurmagomedov that will certainly strike some fear into Justin Gaethje.
The undefeated lightweight champion will defend his title against The Highlight on October 24 at UFC 254 on Fight Island.
Gaethje, 31, comes into the highly-anticipated bout on a huge wave of confidence after defeating Tony Ferguson in May.
However, as if he needed another reminder of what awaits him inside the cage, a new clip has gone viral of his opponent demonstrating why many consider him the best pound-for-pound wrestler on the planet.
The video shows Khabib, who has previously wrestled with a bear, showcasing his abilities against a much larger foe.
The Eagle’s grappling abilities are on full display as his giant opponent is easily out-maneuvered and wrestled by the Dagestani king.
However, it is alleged the clip is not even new, highlighting the tremendous skillset Khabib has possessed for numerous years.
Former heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier regularly trained with the 32-year-old at the AKA in California.
And he has already spoken about how strong Khabib is and his ease at being able to outwrestle men much larger than himself.
Gaethje is no doubt the underdog ahead of next month’s clash, but footage of him in training has also gone viral showing off his toughness.
He was filmed during a sparring session easily shrugging off a clean high kick to the temple.
The American was hailed by fans as "the real-life Terminator" having seemed unaffected by the strike.
Gaethje warned he will create a 'zone of death' in the octagon as he attempts to dethrone Nurmagomedov.
He said on Michael Bisping's Believe You Me podcast: “There’s going to be a zone in front of me, it’s not very big.
“It’s gonna be a zone of death, and I have to represent death every time he enters this zone.
“That’s what I’m best at, creating carnage. Creating car crashes.”
