I can’t say that I disagree with Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, when he states that Khabib is a global superstar. The proof is in the pudding and Khabib certainly has a lot of proof. After his fight with Conor McGregor, Khabib has gone on a world tour of epic proportions.
While McGregor licked the wounds of his loss, he was immediately out hustling his brand of whiskey. Meanwhile, Khabib has been travelling the globe and meeting world leaders. Honestly, it’s insane.
So, when Abdelaziz says that Khabib is a global superstar, he’s not kidding. Is Khabib worth $50-$100 million per fight? Possibly. However, at this moment, I think it’s more Conor and Khabib together that make a $50 million payday.
