Khabib Nurmagomedov has called on fighters to do more with their money than spend it on luxuries like expensive cars and jewellery.

Speaking to media after his victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, Khabib hit out at fighters earning millions and not using that money for good.

“We’re famous, we have money, but we can help people. Why not? If you have money in your hand, this is very good. But if your money goes in your mind, this is very bad,” he said.

“This is why we have to stay focused, stay humble, help people.”
