Kilkenny don't usually need much help when it comes to winning All-Irelands but they surely won't turn down the support of one of the UFC's biggest stars.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, who famously defeated Conor McGregor in the octagon last year, has been pictured wearing the famous black and amber ahead of this Sunday's hurling final against old rivals Tipperary.

The current lightweight champ posed for a photo alongside Kilkenny fighter Myles Price in California and while the Russian might be busy preparing for his next bout against Dustin Poirier on September 7, he'll hopefully be able to find time to support his new team on Sunday.
