Khabib Nurmagomedov gets called out for ‘Haram’ crypto promotion

Khabib Nurmagomedov is a name that commands respect in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. With a flawless record of 29 wins and zero losses, he is widely regarded as one of the greatest lightweights in the history of the sport.

Besides being a world-class athlete, Khabib is also a devout Muslim who has amassed a massive following, making him the most popular Muslim athlete globally.

Despite his popularity, Khabib found himself at the center of controversy recently following a tweet promoting the Gameplan.

The Gameplan is a sports-based metaverse, which is a shared virtual space where fans can interact with athletes. While Khabib expressed his excitement about being involved with the project, fans did not share his enthusiasm.

Some fans accused Khabib of promoting a scam, while others implied that he was doing anything for money.

The tweet sparked mixed reactions, with some fans trolling Khabib, while others expressed support. It’s not uncommon for athletes to face criticism from fans, but Khabib’s case was particularly interesting due to his status as a cultural icon.

“Haram” is an Arabic term that is often used in Islamic law to describe actions or behaviors that are considered forbidden or sinful. It refers to any activity that is deemed morally or religiously unacceptable according to Islamic principles. In Islam, haram is seen as a violation of the divine law and can have serious consequences for a person’s spiritual and moral well-being.

This isn’t the first time Nurmagomedov promoted a suspicious crypto related project


Khabib Nurmagomedov has been promoting GMT token, which was created by GoMining.

GMT token is supposed to be backed by constantly growing computing power and enable holders to mine Bitcoin for an unlimited period.

However, GMT token is being described as a Ponzi scheme because the staking rewards in GMT Token offer a fixed return of 20%, which is a very high and unsustainable return.

The required minimum investment is $10, and there is an NFT collection available. Despite the promised computing power, owning the NFT does not mean that you own hardware, but just a picture of it.

Additionally, the NFT can be used as a ticket to private events hosted by Khabib Nurmagomedov.

However, the project appears to have failed, as there were only 7 sales of the NFTs, and the GMT token value went down since it was affected by the Terra Luna Collapse in April. The GMT token was based on the Solana network.

Prior to endorsing Crypto projects, Khabib Nurmagomedov came out and denounced casinos lauding that his own promotion will never be sponsored by betting sites because they ‘ruin lives’.
