First Vice-President of the Russian Wrestling Federation and President of “Pure Heart” Omar Murtuzaliev proposed to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov to become the face of the fund.
“Today, the fights in the octagon surpass all other martial arts in popularity, and thanks to the brilliant victories in the UFC, Khabib is known all over the world, Dagestanis respect and are proud of him! And we would like to attract Khabib to participate in the activities of our foundation. We have one goal - to help our fellow countrymen, people in need, ”said Omar Murtazaliev.
The UFC champion supported the proposal to join the charity fund team, noting that he already has experience working with Pure Heart.
“A few years ago, Eldar (the director of the fund, Eldar Iraziev) asked me to record an appeal to fellow countrymen with an appeal to participate in charity work. I tried to refuse, said that my campaigning would not be of any use, since I won only one battle in America, and few people know me. But he insisted on his own, so I have long been part of the “Pure Heart”, - Khabib Nurmagomedov summed up with a smile.
