Vladimir Putin hails Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC win during meeting

Vladimir Putin hails Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC win during meeting

He said: "Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people?" The altercations started after Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor in the fourth round and proceeded to leap out of the Octagon to spark a massive brawl. They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?

"If you think that I'll keep silent then you are mistaken", Nurmagomedov said.

So how can you do nothing about McGregor's misbehavior, then take such an opposite stance when it's Nurmagomedov and his team causing all the trouble?

"The post came the day after UFC president Dana White appeared to try and ease tensions with a tweet in which he jokingly asked, "(C) an Khabib come out and play?" "You canceled Zubaira's fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor".

"If you decide to fire (Tukhugov), you should know that you'll lose me too. But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my other Brother FIRST, just check the video".

"In a family anything can happen, (but) we never allow ourselves to go beyond certain limits", Putin said.

A bout between the team members of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, which was scheduled for October 27, has been called off, according to a report by Russian news agency TASS. "If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I will break it myself". Once the fighter gets into the details about fellow fighter Zubaira Tukhugov, things get juicy.

We mostly know the answers to these questions.

Nurmagomedov threatened to leave the UFC if they fire any of his teammates, which could put the promotion in an uncomfortable spot.

After the fight, the champion jumped into the crowd to confront McGregor's teammate, Bellator MMA fighter Dillon Danis who had been antagonizing him from cageside. Three of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested but later released because McGregor refused to press charges. How are we supposed to interpret it as anything but an egregiously uneven application of justice, with consequences determined not by what you do but by how much you're worth to the UFC?

The Russian was due to receive US$2 million (NZ$3.1m) for his fight against McGregor, but the Nevada Athletic Commission is withholding his salary pending an investigation into the post-fight brawls.
