Khabib Nurmagomedov scares just about everyone he meets, even if you are a former strongest man in the world.

He was one of the most feared fighters of all time and a big pound for the sport.

The Beast may stand 6ft 3in and weigh around 158kg, but the Russian is still an intimidating number two to him.

Posting a photo on Instagram he wrote: Two things scare me in life, my dad’s belt and @khabib_nurmagomedov.

Khabib made the most of his time in the UK after playing a game at Old Trafford to see Manchester United draw with Everton.

His conversation with Sir Alex Ferguson was overheard by the former United boss apparently criticizing the decision not to pitch Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo and Khabib are good friends and were seen fighting after the game.

Hall hosted the Arnold Sports UK event in Birmingham last weekend with many athletes and fans in attendance.

The strongest former man in the world has recovered from bicep surgery, an injury that forced his fight with Hafthor Bjornsson to be pushed back.

In an interview on that fight, he said, “I’m very confident. You know how seriously I take things. I showed absolutely no content in terms of good or bad I am.

“I’m just going to let my fists speak. He can say or do whatever he wants, but at the end of the day I’m going to knock him out.

“All that matters to me is that he gets eliminated.

“I haven’t even started the mental game with Thor and he’s already calling me a tyrant. He better get his act together because it will get worse.

“These press conferences are going to be very stressful for him.”
