EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov just made himself Public Enemy #1 to all the Rocky Balboa fans across the country … telling TMZ Sports that he’s Team Ivan Drago!

Disclaimer: Khabib is 100% Russian … which almost makes it OK that he rooted against the Italian Stallion in “Rocky IV.” Almost.

“He’s from Russia. He’s from USSR. Of course I support him,” Nurmagomedov — who’s fighting this weekend at UFC 219 — told us while out in Century City, L.A.

FYI, Drago (and his spawn) are playing a BIG role in “Creed 2” … but no word if they’re gonna avenge the brutal ‘L’ that Rocky handed Ivan back in the day.

Bonus: Khabib wasn’t too happy with Russia’s ban from the 2018 Winter Games … and dropped some pretty serious shade on the International Olympics Committee.
