A UFC champ uploaded a video clip of himself playing basketball and says "NBA, I'm coming" after draining a three-point shot.

In MMA, not too many fighters can play basketball. UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones once tried to dunk but to no avail. If Jones' dunk attempt appears to be a hilarious and embarrassing act, it is not yet sure whether UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov's three-point shot video clip will be taken seriously or will be just something to laugh about.

Khabib uploaded a video of him playing basketball, and in the short clip, the Russian fighter managed to bank in a long three-point shot. Everybody was celebrating after the what seems to be a dramatic finish, but for some reason, it is very noticeable that Khabib did not dribble the ball. Many believe that the champ has no idea about the basketball fundamentals, Sports Gossip reported.

According to Fansided, what was more striking in the footage were the six steps he took before draining the ball off the backboard and in. In fact, none of the players in the clip seems to know how to dribble.

Another interesting thing about this Khabib basketball video clip is that the champ did mention the NBA in his caption. Khabib said, "NBA, I'm coming," like a rookie prospect.

The video was meant to be a response to UFC analyst Joe Rogan's comments on Khabib's basketball skills. In an episode of Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan can't stop laughing at Khabib and his training partners as they play basketball but according to them it is called "Dagestani Basketball" and in this type of basketball, no dribbling is required.

“What the f*ck am I looking at? That is so ridiculous! That is hilarious,” Rogan said.

The long-time UFC commentator can't seem to get a hold on himself as he laughed so hard watching the clip and even sarcastically asked his guest host "why don't they dribble?".

But the pair respected the intensity of Khabib's training as the Dagestani basketball appears to be a some sort of a warm-up for Khabib's team and after hours of playing ball, that's the only time the champ's camp will start their intense MMA training.

Indeed, it is hard to believe how Khabib and his team train. Not too many fighters play basketball for hours, regardless if there's dribbling involved, and then switch to intense MMA training afterwards. In fact, only Khabib's team does that thus far.

Khabib will try to solidify his UFC lightweight title as he faces UFC interim lightweight champ Dustin Poirier in September at Abu Dabhi.
