EA Sports Apologizes to Khabib Nurmagomedov for post-fight celebration

Khabib Nurmagomedov celebrates

Earlier this week top ranked UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov took to Twitter to inform EA Sports that they got his post-fight celebration wrong in EA Sports UFC 2, and that the company needed to change his celebration as a sign of respect to himself and his fans.

Nurmagomedov posted a photo on Instagram showing a message which he received from the EA Sports UFC team, apologizing for the error, promising to fix it.

Я мусульманин.Алхамдулиллагь. Я не имею ничего против Христиан, у каждого человека свой путь в этой жизни, а мой путь это – Ислам. Разработчики этой игры сделали ошибку, но давайте будем честны, все мы ошибаемся в этой жизни и я не держу на них зла, они извинились и пообещали исправить это. Надеюсь следующий раз они учтут какая религия у каждого бойца и не допустят таких ошибок в будущем. I'm Muslim, Alhamdulilah. I have nothing against Christians. Every man in this life has his own way, and my way is Islam. Developers of the game made mistake. Let's be honest, every human being made mistakes, and I'm not holding a grudge. They apologized and promised to fix it. Hopefully, next time they wouldn't make mistakes like this, and take account everybody's religion. @easportsufc @ufc
