Known Real Madrid fan and UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov forced a child to say "Hala Madrid!" in exchange for a photo. Khabib was seen taking pictures with some youngsters before refusing to have one taken with a kid who came out as a Barcelona fan.
"He's Barcelona, no, no, no, not with you brother," the fighter said.
"Only Real Madrid, brother. I'm not going to take a picture. If you say 'Hala Madrid', we can take a picture."
The fan eventually gave in and said 'Hala Madrid' before Khabib agreed to the picture.
