WATCH: Undefeated UFC and MMA fighter used to wrestle bears

By Evan Hilbert | CBSSports.com

To prepare for a career as an MMA and UFC fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov wrestled bears in his native Russia a youngster, apparently.

And this isn't one of those things where someone says something obtuse about their past that can't be verified -- there's video! As you can see, a nine-year-old Nurmagomedov once grappled with a bear, like, for fun.

The approach has been successful thus far.

Nurmagomedov is unbeaten, going 5-0 as a UFC fighter and 21-0 in mixed martial arts bouts.
