Nabil Khatib to ArabsMMA:
I’ve been training with Firas Zahabi for about 8 years now. I train with Aeimann as well, he’s a really good guy. They’re all a really good group to work with.
My parents came to Canada when they were in their 20’s. I was born here; I have 1 brother and 3 sisters.
I’m THE ONLY ONE IN MY FAMILY THAT EXERCISES! lol, let alone, doing what I do. I don’t know why I love this sport, I just do.
And I DO SPEAK ARABIC 😉 just can’t write!
I hope to visit Lebanon soon and I would really like to fight there as well!
