UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov is not happy with one of his fight celebrations in the new EA Sports UFC video game.

“The Eagle” said in a tweet recently, “I’m a MUSLIM and not Baptized. Please @EASPORTSUFC edit my after fight celebration. I have a lot of Muslim fans and you have to respect it.”

With there being a few variations of post-fight celebrations in the video game, this is the one in particular that has Nurmagomedov sensitive about with his religion. In this post-fight celebration, Nurmagomedov’s character is seen crossing his heart, but makes it very known in his tweet that he is Muslim.

Do you think EA Sports will be able to change the gesture like Nurmagomedov has asked? Share your thoughts in the comment section on the sensitive matter.
