Ronaldo has more charisma than Messi: When Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed his pick

Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? This is a question that would puzzle most football fans out there. Unless you are a hardcore Ronaldo or a hardcore Messi fan, it is hard to pick the better player from the two.

Former UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was posed with a similar question a couple of years back and the Russian MMA superstar had a clear-cut answer.

"Yes, I do. Well, Messi plays very well too. He is one of the best ever. I think they are on the same level skill-wise, but Cristiano has more charisma,” Khabib said when asked about whether Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the World.
