Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov[a] (born 20 September 1988) is a Russian former professional mixed martial artist. He competed in the lightweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where he was the longest-reigning UFC Lightweight Champion ever, having held the title from April 2018 to March 2021. With 29 wins and no losses, he retired with an undefeated record.[8] Nurmagomedov is widely considered to be among the greatest mixed martial artists of all time,[9][10][11][12][13] and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on June 30, 2022.[14]

A two-time Combat Sambo World Champion, Nurmagomedov has a background in the disciplines of sambo, judo and wrestling. Nurmagomedov was ranked #1 in the UFC men's pound-for-pound rankings at the time of his retirement,[15] until being removed following his title vacation in March 2021.[16] Fight Matrix ranks him as the #1 lightweight of all time.[17]

Coming from the Republic of Dagestan in Russia, Nurmagomedov is the first Muslim to win a UFC title.[18][19] He is the most-followed Russian on Instagram,[20] with more than 34 million followers as of December 2022.[21] He is also a mixed martial arts (MMA) promoter, known for promoting the Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC). Since retirement, he has transitioned to a mixed martial arts coach and cornerman.
