Police at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport on Thursday arrested Usman Nurmagomedov, and his friend for running over a police officer at Kaspiysk Airport with their vehicle, Tass News Agency reported.
Usman is the cousin of Russia’s former UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, according to a law enforcement source.
“They are suspected of running over a policeman with a car at the checkpoint of Kaspiysk Airport,” the press office stated.
Usman Nurmagomedov is a 23-year-old fighter, who boasts an MMA record of 14 wins (8 by KOs, 4 by submission and 2 by decision)
Khabib Nurmagomedov, the former UFC Lightweight Champion of Russia, who announced his retirement in October 2020, was the first Russian to win the UFC [the Ultimate Fighting Championship] champion title, which he did in the spring of 2018 against his American opponent Al Iaquinta.
In all of his mixed martial arts matches, the 33-year-old Russian fighter known as ‘The Eagle’ has a perfect 29-win record (8 by KOs, 11 by submission and 10 by decision).
