    The Juventus player is known as a combat sports fan. Recently, Ronaldo mentioned having a surprise meeting with British boxer Anthony Joshua back in 2019 in Dubai.

    Football legend Cristiano Ronaldo was caught having a FaceTime call with MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov. A team-mate of the UFC lightweight champion, fighter Islam Makachev, posted a clip of Nurmagomedov chatting with Ronaldo, adding a disclaimer, saying "Damn, he's putting together a serious team", hinting at Khabib's recent meeting with Dutch football manager Clarence Seedorf.

    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.
