ESPN MMA recently shared a picture on social media, revealing the combined record of the Nurmagomedov team. As mentioned, they have a combined record of 142 wins, 11 wins, and 3 no-contest. Amongst them, Khabib Nurmagomedov (29-0), Usman Nurmagomedov (16-0), and Umar Nurmagomedov (15-0) are the unbeaten prodigies.

UFC News: Khabib Nurmagomedov team ridiculed by Jon Jones and others after the combined record of Dagestani clan revealed- ‘How many of those wins were actually against top’
As requested by Khabib Nurmagomedov, UFC made Khabib the number one. P4P fighter and it seemingly vexed Jon Jones. ‘Bones’ took to social media and compared 15 title fight wins with Khabib’s 4. Here’s a look at the video.
Now that Khabib Nurmagomedov’s team is being highlighted, Jon Jones has taken a shot at the former UFC lightweight champion again. Nevertheless, Jon Jones hasn’t been active since quitting the light heavyweight division. He is yet to make his heavyweight debut, which has been in the news for quite some time now. On the contrary, team Nurmagomedov has been dominating the MMA universe at the time. The next big test for them will be Islam Makhachev’s first title defense against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 283 in February 2023.
