Khabib Nurmagomedov pisses himself laughing as cousin pays homeless people to do pushups
Khabib Nurmagomedov may lose some fans over this video.
Undisputed UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has landed himself in hot water over a video he uploaded to his Instagram story.
The footage opens with a homeless man finishing up a set of pushups on the street. Khabib can be heard laughing in the background as the man completes the task and gets back to his feet. Khabib continues to laugh as another man, who is tagged in the story as his cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov, interacts with the homeless man. Abubakar jokingly gets into a fight stance as the man gestures towards him.
In the next clip, Abubakar is shown handing the homeless man some money. Khabib can be heard giggling as the note changes hands. The homeless man bows to Abubakar, who extends his arm for a handshake just as the clip ends.
It then cuts to another man doing pushups as Abubakar watches over. Khabib is still laughing as he shoots the clip.
Although the videos are no longer on his Instagram story, you can see them in the tweet embedded below.

Nurmagomedov is scheduled to defend his title against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena on October 6. It will mark the undefeated Dagestani's first defence of the belt. McGregor returns to the Octagon after nearly a two-year absence to try to reclaim the title he was stripped of.
The event is expected to smash UFC PPV records.
