Dagestan Basketball
Obviously, in Dagestan, they change the rules a bit and instead of playing… you can attack and fight with each other! Take a quick look at the video below to see people running a basketball court on a basketball court, not playing, and for example in 4 minutes, watching Khabib strangle someone, putting him in bed, and then the game continues with the man running the ball and taking his place. This is a strong form of basketball and even the other tiffs

First, the basketball we know is full of rules that can be very complicated. And Dagestan’s solution to the problem? It’s not easy!

So, although one has to remember where you stand, how you play, whether the player is in motion with the ball, or whether the steps to get to where they are placed are 3 instead of two, there are no such things. rules on Dagestan basketball!

Looking like American football, the players run from one side to the other where they hit the basket to add points to their side. There are no limits. However, there is an agreed ground where players engage in the game.

In addition, there are no restrictions on physical communication. However, that only makes sense if you are carrying world-class warriors!

Why is Khabib Nurmagomedov used to play basketball before each session?
In an interview, Khabib said the game is a great way to warm up. Indeed, the game of basketball is a matter of concern.
Staying through the whole court to rush from case to defense while we use the game does not get tired within 2 minutes. Although Dagestan players do not play with determination, they are able to achieve their warmth successfully.

After all ten minutes of running, passing, shooting and jumping should accomplish the task. Plus, with the extra thing for team games, warming up is a lot of fun!
