The cousin of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov – Usman Nurmgomedov, is set to make his Bellator debut.
The Russian will enter the cage on February 26 when the organization will resume its shows. The opponent and the venue are yet to be announced.
Usman is training alongside his two cousins – Khabib and Umar. Umar is making its UFC debut this month on January 23 in Abu Dhabi.
The 22-year-old is also competing in the lightweight division and it is undefeated. He holds an 11-0 record. The last time he fought was in September 2020 when he defeated Svyatoslav Shabanov at “Fight Nights Global & GFC”.
