Move over Khabib Nurmagomedov, there’s a new bear-wrestling Russian MMA fighter in town.

While Khabib is his country’s best-known bear grappler, Russian giant Maxim ‘Mad Max’ Novoselov is looking to take the heavyweight title.

Novoselov was shown in social media footage brawling with a huge bear inside a cage in Perm, Siberia,  even managing to put the giant animal on its back.

“It was a good opponent for me, it weighs 250kg. Neither of us suffered. The bear maybe suffered more. It rarely sees human bears like me,” the 6ft, 250lbs fighter later told a local news website.
