Illustration for article titled UFC Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov Posts Gross Video Mocking Homeless People

Conor McGregor will return from his two-year hiatus from the UFC to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight championship belt on Oct. 6. The press tour for that fight will inevitably be full of wild, often-exhausting trash talk, and fans will all get sick of these two assholes before one of them inevitably gets injured a week before the fight, because that’s just how the UFC is now.


Anyway, Khabib didn’t even need the specter of a forthcoming fight to be a rude jerk, as he posted and quickly deleted a video showing him hysterically laughing while his cousin paid a few homeless men in what appears to be the Bay Area to perform for them and do push-ups. In one frame, Khabib’s cousin Abubakr even holds out some money before demanding the man does a few more push-ups.

The most charitable reading of this video is that Khabib thought this was somehow actually fine because he was giving away money, but, nah, that’s wrong, he’s just being a big dumb asshole.
