UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov is not happy with EA Sports.

“The Eagle” took to Twitter to share his unhappiness stating that his in-game post-fight celebration (which you can see here) is disrespectful towards his Muslim fans.

Check it out:

Khabib Nurmagomedov will meet surging lightweight contender Tony Ferguson in the UFC on FOX 19 headliner next month in Tampa, Florida.

It appears from the video that Khabib points toward the sky when he hops on top of the octagon cage during his post-fight celebration. What are your thoughts? Sound off PENN Nation!
