He's wrestled live bears and sprinted up mountains, but now Khabib Nurmagomedov is taking his training to the next level ... swimming a freezing cold Dagestani river!
Oh, and he's swimming against a pretty strong current!!!
THIS IS INSANE!!
Khabib -- who recently defeated Dustin Poirier -- is gearing up for a tough fight (presumably against Tony Ferguson) and he's not wasting any time getting into fight shape.
Which is why he ended up taking a dip in a river in Kizilyurt -- a small town in Dagestan.
Khabib's pal (who goes by King Farruh) shot the footage and gave his account of the session.
"Hard work and dedication from champ khabib_nurmagomedov. Today was very cold, he doesn’t care."
"Water was very cold I tried to put my feet and almost freeze my a$$ off. Tony you’re in trouble!"
Khabib is 28-0 as a pro MMA fighter with signature wins over guys like Conor McGregor, Rafael dos Anjos, Edson Barboza and Al Iaquinta.
