His youngest boy was born in 2019, just before Nurmagomedov’s win over Dustin Poirier.
But it is his other son who is already learning the ropes, having began when he was just THREE.
Nurmagomedov, 34, said: “He started walking on the mat because we have a gym at home, my son is already training and doing gymnastics.
“He has a good coach that I trust, he already trains in Makhachkala.
“He started earlier than I did, at 3 and a half years old. I’ll be his wrestling coach.”
Nurmagomedov retired unbeaten at 29-0 in 2020 following his win over Justin Gaethje, 34.
It was his one and only fight after the death of his father and mentor Abdulmanap, who passed away aged 57.
Nurmagomedov promised his mother that he would not fight on without the guidance of his influential dad.
He has since been inducted to the UFC Hall of Fame and became a promoter of his own Eagle Fighting Championship.
But life in charge of Eagle FC makes juggling being the boss at home and in the office a tricky one.
Nurmagomedov said: “I’m working on that.
“I always try to have my children fly with me, but when school starts I won’t be able to do that.
“It’s not something I have to show on Instagram or other mass media.
“There are things I share with my fans and then there are private family matters.”
