While Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Daniel Cormier isn’t really happening anytime soon (unless Khabib enters the heavyweights club or DC shreds down to the lightweight division), it appeared for a moment that there was going to be a grudge fight between the two UFC icons! During their training sessions, the two went face to face and had a rather comical interaction where they started arguing over who paid for lunch…. 8 years ago! This leads us to think of the dream match between Khabib vs Cormier
Let us take a closer look at what went down between the two;
Lmao low key Khabib is one of the funniest fighters, him and Daniel Cormier fucking kill me 😂😂😂

Khabib vs Cormier is a War of Words!
Khabib Nurmagomedov was training while DC walked into American Kickboxing Academy and asked Khabib to have some of his teammates ‘hooked up’ to practice in Dagestan. Funnily enough, Khabib responded to this request from Daniel Cormier by asking who is going to pay for it. The argument then started off and went as far back as who paid for lunch 8 years ago!
This gives us a tease into what a promo between Khabib vs Cormier would be like as the two are some of the best and the funniest talkers while also serious fighters!
DC came into AKA and asked Khabib to hook some of his team up with training in Dagestan. Khabib asked who was paying for it. Two seconds later, they’re arguing over who paid for lunch eight years ago. This kind of thing happens regularly. pic.twitter.com/At1KAvDEt3

What’s Next for Khabib after UFC 242: Khabib vs Poirier?
Khabib vs Poirier is all set to be the main event of UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi. However, there are no plans for Khabib after this match. It is heavily anticipated that the Russian is going to win it, and while a rematch between him and McGregor seems unlikely at the moment, one could only wonder about Khabib vs Cormier!
