KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV ran into Prince Naseem Hamed in Mecca throughout Ramadan.
The UFC legend took to Instagram to share the picture together with his 28.1million followers.
Khabib, 32, clasped palms with the boxing icon in what appeared to appear like a lodge eating room.
The Russian was carrying a black t-shirt and black trousers whereas the previous British world champ was in a conventional Islamic white jubba.
Khabib, a Sunni Muslim, wrote: “By accident met a legend in Mecca. Good to satisfy you Brother.”
Mecca is the holiest place in Islam with Muslims making a hajj pilgrimage to the Saudi metropolis no less than as soon as of their lives.
Nurmagomedov retired from UFC final October following his win over Justin Gaethje.
That took his professional MMA tally to 29-0 and defended his world light-weight belt.
However his father Abdulmanap handed away earlier in 2020.
And the unbeaten star determined to cease combating together with his dad not there to help and practice him.
