Top Russian Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) participant Khabib Nurmagomedov, 30, appeared on his Instagram wearing an Arabic-style thawb, sometimes called a kandora or dishdasha.

In a video post, Nurmagomedov in a philosophical manner discusses with his coach the upcoming bout with American UFC athlete Dustin Poirier. Nurmagomedov compared himself to "a hungry eagle" who "will hunt and catch his prey" on 7 September.

Some fans, however, were not impressed. The fancy outfit displayed by the Russian sportsman immediately created a storm of comments from some followers, who apparently were disappointed with famous fighter's new image.
