Houses and Cars


House on Nurmagomedov Street, Russia

The house of Khabib is located at Nurmagomedov Street. But it is not named after Khabib but his uncle Nurmagomed Nurmagomedov. His uncle was a sambo world champion in the 90s.

The house Khabib lives in is no different from any other village house.

The only different and additional feature of the house the separates the house from the rest is the view from the window, which overlooks the beautiful mountains.

The house has two small rooms with a couch and beds. Other than that, it has a pantry with an old refrigerator and a small kitchen area.

Apartment in San Jose, California

Khabib basically lives in two countries. One in Russia, where he lives with his wife and children, and another in San Jose, where he trains at American Kickboxing Academy.

But very little is known about the fighter’s apartment in San Jose.


Even though only a little information about his house is available, we sure know what type of whips the fighter owns. Let’s get it done with then, shall we?

Lada Prioral

This was Khabib’s first car he ever bought after getting his driving license in his Russian homeland of Dagestan.

He bought the car for well over $2,700. It had a 1.6 liters 4 inline 98 horsepower engine.

The car was not known for its speed, but it certainly was reliable.

However, the fighter had to sell the car to fund his MMA career, and it sounds like it’s worth it.

This was his first car but not the last.

Mercedes-Benz W124 300E

Khabib always wanted to own a Mercedes-Benz. It was like his dream car.

When the fighter started making money, he purchased this Mercedes-Benz W124 300E. The car is now worth around $6,900 used.

This particular model of Benz was launched in 1987. It has a 178 brake horsepower engine that pumps the top speed of 135 miles an hour.

He still owns this Mercedes even though he got into an accident on it.

Mercedes-Benz AMG-GT

After Khabib started making a name for himself and his country, he made some high-class people happy to put the country on the map in MMA.

With such happy people, Khabib didn’t even have to pay for this Benz.

One of the Russian billionaires was so happy that he gifted Mercedes-Benz AMG-GT to Khabib.

The car comes equipped with a Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine.

It costs about $190,000 brand new.

However, it seems like Khabib and Mercedes don’t go together. One of his friends borrowed the car and smacked it into the pole.

Ferrari California

It’s like every sports athlete one day wants his hands on the steering wheel of Ferrari.

“And the world shall know that he made it.”

Khabib has been spotted frequently behind the wheel of Ferrari California. The car costs around $200,000.

However, it is not clear that if he owns or rents it.

The car has a top speed of 193 miles an hour and can go from 0-60 miles an hour in just 4 seconds.

BMW 6 Series

When the fighter’s career really took off, he invested in a couple of BMW 6 series runners.

The cost of the 6 series starts at around $60,000.

Series 6 was launched by BMW in 2004; however, they stopped selling them in 2018.

It is unknown that which model the fighter owns.

Reportedly, newly purchased two BMW 6 series in a year.

Toyota Land Cruiser J200

It is believed to be the most recent purchase of Khabib. He added the beast SUV Land Cruiser J200 to his garage.

The SUV costs a little over $85,000 brand new.

It makes sense because Toyota was the sponsor in a few of Khabibs’ fights.

Land Cruiser is Toyota’s most popular and longest-running series.

The SUV comes equipped with a 4.0-liter V6 engine that pumps 245 bake horsepower.

Suitable for all terrains, it is the vehicle of choice of United Nations and NATO forces.
