Nurmagomedov took to his social media handle and stated that he got an invitation from the Toronto Raptors to watch their game against the Warriors. As a result, he went on to accept the offer and graced the event courtside for the action.
Khabib is a huge follower of basketball and he even plays the game under "Dagestani rules." This particular rule involves a blend of basketball and wrestling.

"With Michael Jordan, I just watch like a month ago I watch his documentary because I am working on my documentary, and it was very interesting to watch," Nurmagomedov said.
"My friend advised me like you have to watch this you know, it’s like very impressive. Like before his documentary, I didn’t know about him much. I just know Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player. That’s it."
