Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov is a former undisputed professional mixed martial artist (MMA) of Russian descent. His moniker, ‘The Eagle,’ reflects a stellar MMA career, which has seen him recognized as one of the best fighters to have graced the sport.
Khabib gained worldwide popularity and fame after becoming a regular feature in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where he took on several other prominent fighters.
These include the likes of Connor McGregor, whom he defeated. Remarkably, the Eagle has had zero losses throughout his entire career. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that he was recognized as the most successful Russian athlete in 2020. Take a peek at more interesting facts about him.

Who is Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Wife, Patimat Nurmagomedova?
Patimat Nurmagomedov’s birthplace is Sildi, Tsumadinsky, Dagestan, Russia. Interestingly, this is also where her husband was born. Patimat is assumed to be of the same age as the eagle.
Both Patimat and her husband are Muslim. Khabib’s father even revealed that Patimat was a distant relative of Khabib’s.
Patimat and Khabib met when they were both still young. The two shared a desk at the same school in their hometown for a full year. Over that period, a friendship gradually formed between the pair. This would eventually translate to romantic exploits once they got married.
The pair eventually tied the knot in June 2013 in Kirovaul, Kizilyurtovsky, Dagestan. Their wedding had a lengthy guest list with almost 4,000 people joining to celebrate with the couple.
Patimat donned a long traditional veil that covered her face entirely during the ceremony.
Even though Khabib is a household name in the world of MMA, very little is known about his wife, Patimat. This is because Khabib is extremely secretive about his private life.
Apart from Khabib’s family, relatives, and his inner circle, no one else has laid eyes on Khabib’s paramour.
There is, however, a post that surfaced on the internet of Khabib and an unknown woman. Sources say that the woman in the picture is Patimat, but the rumors were later shut down.
Patimat never attended any of her husband’s matches before his well-deserved retirement. She resides in Dagestan with her children and husband.
On the 1st of June 2015, Patimat and Khabib welcomed their first-born child, Fatima Nurmagomedova, in Dagestan.
Two years later, on December 30th, Patimat gave birth to their second child. Magomed Nurmagomedov gets his name from Khabib’s great grandfather. Their third child was born on December 22, 2019.

Apart from generating income from his MMA career, he has also tried his luck at other ventures. In 2019, sources disclosed that Nurmagomedov had been employed as a brand ambassador for a payment service called SalamPay.
Other than that, we can also point to several endorsement deals by powerful franchises such as Gorilla Energy, Reebook, and Toyota, as another source of income.
