Khabib Nurmagomedov's Real Height

"I don't fight for the money. I fight for my legacy. I fight for history. I fight for my people."

~ Khabib Nurmagomedov

There are many MMA fighters in the world but Khabib Nurmagomedov is unlike any. He is different, very different - so different in fact, from your average run-of-the-mill MMA fighter that there is simply no comparison between him and them. 

Send him their location. Khabib will just maul them. He will drop them first his quick T-rex arms and then make them carry his weight for many rounds. In the end, he will just choke them or submit them - or they will wish that he had. You see there is simply no comparison for Khabib in the current MMA world. He beats 'em all - maybe he retires undefeated as per his father's wish.

About Khabib's Height

Khabib isn't short, though we understand that he can look like that sometimes. He is a powerfully built fella of average height -  but he has a body that we called big-boned or muscular stocky. Consequently, he is quite hefty. When he hasn't trimmed down for weigh-ins, he weighs probably in the range of 190 lb (86 kg).

UFC lists Khabib at a respectful 5'10" but truth be told, Khabib must be a bit shorter than that, after all he looks slightly shorter than Daniel Cormier who is around 5'9.5" (or maybe just 5'9" now). Khabib also looks slightly shorter than 5'10" tall Justin Gaethje.

But as we said Khabib isn't that short. He looks a bit taller than Conor McGregor who is around 5'8.5". Therefore logic follows that his height must be between Conor McGregor and the fighters mentioned earlier. Let's choose the safe and easy number which in this case is 5'9" - around the same height as Dustin Poirier (or maybe slightly taller).

The real height of Khabib Nurmagomedov is

5'9" (175 cm)
