The elusive wife of UFC champ Khabib Nurmagomedov

 

No-one, apart from Khabib, their relatives and her friends, has even seen her face.

In September 2019, following Khabib Nurmagomedov’s  victory over American Dustin Poirier, the 31-year-old UFC mixed martial arts champion became the most popular person on Instagram in Russia. He now has more than 16 million followers.

But all this popularity does not extend to his private life. Until recently, outsiders knew almost nothing about it. At his 2013 wedding, attended by over 3,000 guests, Khabib's wife never showed her face. There is not a single photo of her on the internet. “My family is a closed subject,” Khabib says categorically. But despite all his efforts to hide this aspect of his life, there are some things that are still known about her.

She is his distant relative

The name of Khabib's wife is Patimat. She was born in the same mountain village in Dagestan as Khabib - Sildi. It’s a small village with 200 inhabitants. Khabib shows what the village looks like on his Instagram page.

According to Mash, Patimat was his first love.  They sat at the same desk at the village school, albeit for only a year: When Khabib was in his second year in high school, his family decided to move to Kirovaul, a more sizeable village in Dagestan. And later, the Nurmagomedovs moved even further - to the republic's capital, Makhachkala.

In an interview with Sport Express, Khabib's father, Abdulmanap, said that Patimat was a “distant relative”. She had the same surname - Nurmagomedova - before she married Khabib. Abdulmanap describes her family as an “excellent” one. In the small village of Sildi, families have known one another for generations.

Over 3,000 guests attended the wedding

Khabib was 22 when he decided to get married. By that time, he had already progressed from local leagues to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fights, had attracted many Americans' attention with several impressive victories and, by mid-2013, had earned the reputation of the most promising fighter in the UFC. At that time, he returned to his native Dagestan and sent his father to Patimat's parents to ask for her hand. That is how the story is told in the Russian media today. But, according to Khabib's father, first the young man sought his grandfather's advice: Five or six girls were being considered for the role of Khabib's wife. In the end, Patimat was chosen.

The wedding was exuberant, even by Dagestani standards, as literally everyone was invited. "Anyone who would like to offer their congratulations - please come!" - was the wording of the invitation. And since Khabib had been gaining popularity very rapidly, there were many such people - more than 3,000. The family had to lease a hall for 1,200 people and change the guest list three times. The wedding cost 700,000 rubles - or $21,200, according to the exchange rate at the time - an amount that was not too extravagant for an event on such a scale. But, according to the Nurmagomedov family, they were offered all possible discounts as a token of respect.

There is like 20 people in his home town, maybe 100 in the whole country. I think they are all related. Cut him some slack.

How does he have so much money?   Dana said he was worth over 50 million dollars but that couldn't have been from fight purses and Reebok.

After beating the Irish Catholic Conor McGregor, he became a hero to the Islamic world and went on tour and was given luxury cars, stakes in businesses who wanted to use his name, and much else.

Yeah wasn’t his payout 6 million for the Gaethje fight and something like 10 million for the Poirier fight? I know he made even more against Conor, so that’s at least 3 fights in a row with high payouts with a total of probably 20-30 million. Dude is set for life if he’s smart.

That's normal. My friend from Afghanistan is harrassed by her parents to marry her different cousins all the time. Standard procedure in that religion.

She's a towel mate. Seriously though, very common for rampant inbreeding to go on in that culture... I mean just look at most of them. Not a secret and pretty obvious.

My wedding cost more than Khabibs, that's my new claim to fame, balling!!!

I heard somewhere that fucking your own bloodline isn't as bad as it once was thought to be and that the only real dangers are if you reproduce with someone in your immediate bloodline like father/son/mother/daughter/brother/sister but cousins and stuff are okay.
