Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Leave UFC If His Teammate Is Released

Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Leave UFC If His Teammate Is Released

His teammate, Zubaira Tukhugov, was one of the fighters who attacked Conor McGregor after the fight in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov and his father on Wednesday.

Diaz addressed White asking him to fire him instead of Nurmagomedov because it would be better. "He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus and he nearly kill a couple people", Nurmagomedov said in his post-fight press conference". They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?

He then vowed to quit if his brother was sacked, and explained that he didn't care about whether or not he was paid: "If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too".

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

Nurmagomedov is now awaiting his punishment from the Nevada State Athletic Commission who have already withheld his $2M fight purse. We have to start after the brawl that he started once diving over the Octagon onto Conor McGregor's corner. The thing is, Diaz has really nothing to do with the whole thing, except for the fact that he's campaigning to fight Nurmagomedov. If his relationship with UFC fractures, Viacom-backed Bellator MMA is likely to spend freely to bring him aboard. Nurmagomedov wrote, referring to an incident in April when McGregor threw a steel dolly through the window of a bus Nurmagomedov was riding in at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, before UFC 223.

Artem Lobov, who was supposed to fight Tukhugov, wasn't a fan Dana White's vow to fire his scheduled opponent for personal reasons. However, chaos broke out immediately following the fight, with both Khabib's team and McGregor's team engaging in fights amongst the crowd.

"I will ask your father not to punish you too strictly because you achieved the main task, worthily and convincingly", Putin told the duo (via RT).

McGregor was arrested and spent a night in jail for his actions, but avoided a felony conviction by accepting a plea deal. In any case, punish me, (Tukhugov) has nothing to do with that.
