Renowned MMA coach Javier Mendez, well-known for mentoring fighters like Khabib Nurmagomedov, Islam Makhachev and Daniel Cormier, was recently seen in the company of former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant in Dubai.

In a group photo shared by Mendez, the 53-year-old coach was joined by powerlifter Vladimir Shmondenko, his trainer Steven Lukatsky, and others. The post also highlighted Mendez's newfound interest in cricket, as he shared his learnings from the two cricketing icons. The caption read:

"Cricket anyone? I have these two with my team @mahi7781 [Mahendra Singh Dhoni] @rishabpant [Rishabh Pant] learned from @khabib_nurmagomedov [Khabib Nurmagomedov] always stack the odds in your favor…Fun time learning about cricket & didn’t realize they pitch the ball at 100 miles per hour hitting the ground first and matches can last up to 5 days. Thank you for the lesson on cricket @mahi7781."
