Khabib Nurmagomedov's MMA star cousin Usman being hunted by cops after 'hitting police officer with his car at airport'

UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov's star cousin Usman is wanted by cops due to being suspected of running over a police officer.

The 23-year-old Russian, who has a 14-0-0 record inside the octagon, last competed at Bellator 269 last month.


Now he is reportedly being hunted by the law over an incident in Dagestan, according to Russian news outlet VZ.

MMA athlete Osman Nurmagomedov, a cousin of fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, was suspected of running into a police officer in Dagestan, a law enforcement source said.

They published a statement from the local police that read: “The Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for Kaspiysk is looking for Kamal Khabibovich Idrisov, 10/29/1998, and Osman Magomednabievich Nurmagomedov, 04/17/1998,who hit a police officer at the Airport checkpoint in a Toyota Camry.

"The abovementioned persons flew to the Sheremetyevo airport – the source of RIA Novosti quoted a police orientation.

“They are suspected of having run over a police officer at the Airport checkpoint by car.

"Citizens were taken to the duty unit of the line unit. The issue of detention and placement in a temporary detention facility is being resolved."

The Department of Transport of the Ministry of Internal Affairs has now also confirmed in the Central Federal District clarified, without disclosing names, that two men flew from Makhachkala and were detained for hitting a police officer at Sheremetyevo.

Khabib emerged as one of the most fearsome champions in UFC history, equipped with devastating wrestling and improving striking.

But Usman has been hailed as a more well-rounded fighter – a mixture of Israel Adesanya, Jon Jones and his cousin.

Usman trains out of Dagestan as well as California with Khabib and the rest of their stable and made headlines in his a win against Jerry Kvarnstrom.

With Khabib cageside, Usman dominated Kvarnstrom in Abu Dhabi and ended the fight in just 40 seconds after a knee dropped his opponent allowing him to ground and pound till the finish.

The lightweight contender has not yet been signed to the UFC, but cousin Khabib warned it is only a matter of time.

He said: “I think in a year, towards the end of 2021, we’ll sign Usman (to UFC), barring any serious injuries. We have big plans for him.”

Khabib announced his retirement in October 2020 and was the first Russian ever to win a UFC title.

The 33-year-old, nicknamed ‘The Eagle,’ had a 100 per cent record of 29 wins.
