Lightweight rising star Khabib Nurmagomedov had a hard time securing his next bout, and threw mud at the likes of Gilbert Melendez, Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone in the hopes of getting someone – anyone – to commit to signing on the dotted line. Eventually, he was paired up against Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos, and the two will now meet in the cage at UFC on FOX 11 on April 19. Has the trash talk from the Dagastani Russian abated? Nope. Does it make sense like all trash talk should? Not really!
The following is a cute little photoshop Nurmagomedov posted to his Instagram. The caption reads “My dessert on the way to the titleshot”, which is all well and good, but does Nurmagomedov mean to say he’s going to be eating Dos Anjos? Sampling his “jiu-jitsu flavor”? That the Brazilian is candy?
Nurmagomedov gets an “A” for effort, as the intent is clearly there. But something seems to be getting lost in translation, and it’s rendering some quality insults into a bunch of “Lol, wut?” moments.
