Ronaldo and Khabib are known for their friendship: previously, the football star congratulated Nurmagomedov after his successful lightweight title defence against Justin Gaethje. At the same time, the MMA fighter is a huge Real Madrid fan, and Ronaldo was one of the most important players in the club, playing there in 2009-2018.
