Publisher EA has issued an apology to Muslim UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, after the sportsman raised religious concerns regarding his character in EA Sports UFC 2

In the sports brawler, Nurmagomedov can be seen making the Christian sign of the cross as a celebration animation, leading the undefeated Lightweight to post the following message via Twitter a few days ago.

Issuing an apology to Nurmagomedov directly, EA acknowledged the error before confirming that a fix will be released imminently.
