Khabib Nurmagomedov has now come forward to admit that the child in the video is indeed him from his youth. He tells Combate.com through a translator (h/t BloodyElbow.com):

Yes, I was. It was a secret video and I do not know how that got on the internet. That was long ago, I almost do not remember, I was a boy at the time.

-- End of Update --

Two young Russian boys take turns wrestling a bear. Reports that the taller child is MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov in his youth have been denied, so we'll just have to accept that these are merely a few random Russian children looking for some exercise and entertainment. Because Russia. (Video has some NSFW language.)
