State Duma Deputy Gadzhimurad Omarov asked President Vladimir Putin to consider the possibility of awarding the UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov the title of Hero of Russia. The text of the appeal was published on the Bloody Lady Telegram channel.

In his letter, the deputy recalled that Nurmagomedov has repeatedly defended and defended the honor of Russia at the international level. In addition, according to Omarov, the fighter actively promotes and develops sports, an active lifestyle, family values, and also conducts charitable activities.

“I am sure that the majority of citizens of the Russian Federation will support this initiative”, - the deputy noted in his address to the president.

Let us recall that on October 24, Nurmagomedov, after defending the UFC champion belt in a fight with American Justin Gaethje, announced his retirement. This is due to the death of his father and coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov from the coronavirus. The athlete wanted to devote more time to his mother. He can also return to mixed martial arts as a coach.
