The world-famous Turkish chef Nusret Gokce known as Salt Bae came to the Uzbek capital of Tashkent on Sunday, November 24, to attend the GFC20 tournament. RT Sport filmed his joint training with the head of the MMA Federation of Uzbekistan Otabek Umarov.

"I’m not the butcher only. I like also sport. Every morning I wake up early first start sport and I’m all day working. People also take my inspiration, because people see my body differently. I’m working for 10 hours. People say: “you make my inspiration”. I start the gym," Gokce said.

Answering a question about a possible fight with MMA stars, Gokce said he was ready: “McGregor, Khabib, everybody, I am ready. I respect too much but one day if you write to me I’m ready for fighting."

Nusret Gokce is a Turkish butcher, chef and restaurateur who owns Nusr-Et chain of steak houses all over the world. His technique of cooking became an Instagram sensation and spawned an Internet meme.
