But some believe that Bayern Munich’s Lewandowski, 33, has had a hard time making it missed in the competition.

The Pole is second, with Chelsea’s Jorginho, 29, third, and Real Madrid’s Benzema, 33, in fourth.

Football fanatic Khabib said: “I would give it to Lewandowski or Benzema. One of them.

“I think it’s Lewandowski. For the past three years, he’s been the best footballer.

“We can only look at his results. What he does. He won the Champions League. He has scored more than 120 goals in the last two years.

“For the national team and the club. It’s an incredible result.

“For the entire history of football, I can’t remember, we can name a pair of players who scored 120 goals in two years.

“He’s got 65 goals this year. That’s too much. For football, I think it’s too much. I think he deserves the Ballon d’Or.”

Nurmagomedov, 33, retired in October 2020, shortly after defeating Justin Gaethje, also 33.

This was his first and only game without his influential father and coach Abdulmanap, who passed away last July.

Khabib vowed never to continue without his father and has since retired to focus on training.

But rumors spread that the former UFC champion who said frequent Ronaldo’s Manchester United, is starting his football career.

He even received an offer from Russian third tier football team FC Kamaz, which is not brought up.
