The chance to meet Michael Jordan is one of those experiences that you just can't put a price on. Jordan is a true icon of the game and is considered to be one of the greatest athletes in history. One can't try to put a price on Michael Jordan. But one former UFC legend did that, and his price was a little unusual.
UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov told comedian Bob Menery that he wanted to meet Michael Jordan. During the discussion, Khabib had an interesting offer for Menery if he was able to make the meeting between the former UFC champion and Michael Jordan happen; three sheep. And he also offered to give Michael Jordan three dogs.
Menery: “How many sheep do I get for Michael Jordan?”
Khabib: “Three sheep. If you make me and Michael Jordan meet, I’m going to give you three sheep.”
Menery: “Well get your three sheep ready.”
Khabib: “And we’re going to give him three dogs.”
Nurmagomedov was clearly joking, as everyone around him laughed out loud. If all it took to meet Michael Jordan was three sheep and three dogs, a lot more people would have met him. But there is no reason to think Jordan would deny a meeting with Khabib, as they both excelled in their respective sports, and Jordan always seemed to respect other excellent athletes.
Jordan has met other legendary athletes before, including one hilarious encounter with NHL legend Wayne Gretzky. But Khabib really wants to meet Michael Jordan, as many people do, because of what he means to the game.
Former NBA champion Klay Thompson has also spoken about meeting Michael Jordan as a kid and mentioned how incredible a moment it was for him. Perhaps Khabib wants to have a similar experience, and get to meet 'His Airness' in person.
