Russian UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0) who’s currently keeps training for his fight with Tony Ferguson (25-3), decided to remind everyone on how important it is to stay healthy.

“It was an amazing journey that’s still going. Something’s still to come… But health is above all.

Take care of yourself and your family. Sport cannot rank above life values. Just in case, my coffee is vanilla,” Khabib wrote on his Instagram under a photo in a company of his teammates.

Initially, the fight between Nurmagomedov and Ferguson was supposed to take place in Brooklyn, New York, but due to mass events restrictions because of coronavirus the location had to be changed.

Earlier, it was announced that the fight might take place in Florida but Khabib’s father and coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said it’s not going to happen.
