Ronaldo and Khabib first met each other in 2018 when the Portuguese gifted his Real Madrid's T-shirt to the Eagle. Khabib is also a huge Real Madrid fan. Ronald also is an MMA fan and is very close to Khabib's arch rival Conor McGregor. He even trained with the Notorious in 2016 and even invited him and his coach John Kavanagh to Jennifer Lopez's party.
