In recent years, Usman Nurmagomedov has gained recognition in the MMA community. His victory at the Bellator 300 event solidified his status as one of the top lightweight fighters globally. With two successful title defenses within a year, he has captured the interest of fans, the press, and the UFC.
The fighter from Bellator secured a commanding win against their opponent, making a memorable impact. Their exceptional display received recognition globally and thrust them into the limelight. In a post-fight interview, the Dagestani fighter imitated a distinctive move similar to that of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Usman Nurmagomedov replicates Cristiano Ronaldo’s antics
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin, Usman Nurmagomedov, carried on his brother’s success by successfully defending his Bellator lightweight title against Brent Primus on Saturday night in San Diego. The fight was the main event at Bellator’s 300 event.
During his most recent journey, the winner imitated a situation reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo’s actions. In a post-match interview, Usman Nurmagomedov moved the Monster cans from the top of the table to underneath it, just like the famous footballer did with Coca-Cola.
The champion’s win over Primus secured his spot in the final round of Bellator’s lightweight World Grand Prix. With a perfect record of 18-0, Usman Nurmagomedov is carrying on the family legacy of remaining undefeated. In the finals, the Dagestani will compete against either Patricky Freire or Alexander Shabliy for a chance to win the grand prize of $1 million.
However, this action is bound to cause a stir, just like what occurred with Ronaldo.
What did Cristiano Ronaldo do to Coca-Cola?
Cristiano Ronaldo caused a significant drop in Coca-Cola’s stock value when he rejected the drink in favor of water. The skilled soccer player, during a press conference for Euro Cup 2020, moved two bottles of Coca-Cola, an official sponsor of the event, and opted for water, stating “agua” in Portuguese.
“Conor McGregor, who has been confirmed by USADA, has caused excitement among fans with his return to the octagon. The fighter, known for his hunger and success at high altitudes, has announced his plan to take on Michael Chandler.”
During the press conference, Ronaldo’s simple gesture caused Coca-Cola’s share value to decrease by $4 billion, resulting in a 1.6% drop from £56.17 to £55.22. The decline in stock prices continued thereafter.
