Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov believes that the United States is one of the few countries in the world that gives money to anyone who wants to work and knows how to do it.
“I think the American dream is still alive,” Nurmagomedov said in an interview with Ron Berger. “Before, when people talked about the American dream, I didn’t understand it, but now everything has become clear to me. Ten years ago I first came to the US, sacrificed everything I had, stayed focused, worked hard, and in these ten years I became a champion, defended the title, became a member of the UFC Hall of Famer, and now I have my own promotion and a lot of other enterprises. Therefore, the American dream is a reality.”
As for the large number of American homeless people, the undefeated Russian fighter believes that this is their conscious choice.
“More than 300 million people live here and everyone makes good money, and even if people come from Russia, Mexico or Africa, they work, earn money to live here, and can send money home. This is a very good platform for people who really want to work. But if you want, you can be homeless – that’s your choice. There are few such countries in the world. In other countries you will try to earn money, but you will not be able to, but this country gives such an opportunity.
Recall that 33-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov retired in October last year and is currently engaged in promotional activities, promoting his Eagle FC organization in the United States.
