Ahead of his UFC 254 title unification bout with interim champion Justin Gaethje on Fight Island, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov gives a behind the scenes look into his training for the bout in Dubai.

This will be the first time Khabib has trained for a fight since the passing of his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. But he is still surrounded by a strong team, including several of his usual training partners and longtime American Kickboxing Academy coach Javier Mendez.
