Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov reportedly posted a video of his cousin paying homeless Americans to do push-ups — while he laughed in the background — on his Instagram page.
Nurmagomedov later deleted the video, but it was tweeted by MMA Bible, which condemned it as “disgusting and degrading.”
Nurmagomedov’s cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov, is seen in the video paying homeless men to do push-ups on the street, notes RT.com.
British UFC bantamweight Nathaniel Wood and Belgian UFC fighter Cindy Dandois both slammed the video on Twitter:
It pains my heart to see a man who talks about God all the time, act like this!

Disgusting behaviour. People may think this is harmless but this is taking away dignety from a person that is in a struggle and you laugh about it. He see people doing pushups everyday without laughing. But he thinks it is funny because there is a poor homeless man?!?!
