Cristiano Ronaldo has once again broken records on a football pitch as he grabbed his 64th career hat-trick. Ronaldo scored three goals in Al Nassr's 5-1 win against Al Taee in the Saudi Pro League. Ronaldo has scored 26 goals in 23 Saudi Pro League matches this season for Al Nassr, and many of his fans were happy to see the Portuguese striker still going strong at 39 years old. Ronaldo has many fans across the world, and now he can add MMA fighters to the list after last night's UFC event.

Ronaldo fans got to see his famous celebration at the Al Awal Park during Al Nassr's win. In the second half, Ronaldo shined by scoring three goals in a dominant performance. The iconic "SIUU" celebration is known worldwide, and it has been seen in the NBA and by other athletes. Now it makes its appearance in a UFC octagon ring. Last night in UFC Atlantic City, Uzbekistan fighter Nursulton Ruziboev won his fight by knockout in the first round.

What Ruziboev did after to celebrate his win was something many football fans recognize what he does after. Ruziboev tells his coaching staff to move out of the way, and he does the Ronaldo "SIUU" celebration. It makes it special for Ronaldo fans since it was the same day the Portuguese striker scored another hat trick in his career. Many can assume the fighter saw that Ronaldo scored a hat trick in his game with Al Nassr. It may be hard to ignore since Ronaldo continues to do it at an age many did not expect him to still perform, like in his days at Real Madrid or Manchester United.
