Drake's Reaction When Khabib Nurmagomedov Leapt Out Of The Octagon Is Still Hilarious

To mark the Drake's 35th birthday (have a good one, by the way), we thought we'd drag a little gem back up.

Does anyone remember the musician's reaction at UFC 229 which saw Khabib Nurmagomedov beat Conor McGregor?

Let's remind anyone who isn't too familiar with the moment from 2018. So, after Khabib defeated his opponent, he flew out of the Octagon and confronted McGregor's team, with a brawl quickly ensuing.

One member of McGregor's 'team' who was decidedly uninterested in getting involved appears to have been Drake.

Despite following Conor around all week during the lead-up to the fight, usually draped in an Irish flag, he seemingly bowed out of this one and looked as though he may have had second thoughts on which side to choose.

The Canadian rapper appeared to be thinking 'what have I done' and looked as though he was contemplating the idea that he might be about to be attacked by a man who has not only just choked out one of the all-time UFC greats, but also wrestled with actual bears as a kid.

Abort. Abort.

Of course Drizzy didn't end up getting his head kicked in, but that didn't stop the internet having their wicked way with the unfortunately timed picture.

In fact people are still talking about in now.

Recently, one person wrote on Twitter: "When Khabib jumped out of the cage, Drake sang 'Kiki can you help me'."

Despite supporting McGregor in the 2018 fight, Drake has since said that Nate Diaz is one of his favourite fighters.

Speaking to RapRadar in 2019, he said: "Some of my favourite fighters in the world, take a guy like Nate Diaz, you look at his record, it might not look like the craziest record, but he's still one of my favourite fighters, he's still a dog."
