Putin Congratulates Nurmagomedov After McGregor Win, Issues Veiled Warning

Putin Congratulates Nurmagomedov After McGregor Win, Issues Veiled Warning

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov seems to have finished with the faux-apology phase of his reaction to the post-fight melee at UFC 229. Cameras then captured at least two of Nurmagomedov's teammates climbing into the cage to assault McGregor.

Nurmagomedov jumped over the Octagon fence to confront McGregor's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach Dillon Danis, inciting a massive brawl on the arena floor. If you haven't heard, the fighters and their teams engaged in some troubling antics after Khabib's win, attacking each other in some pretty shameful behavior.

He went on: "We all understand that it was a provocation and I'm sure your father understands that too".

"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).

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".

He then put the blame on Conor McGregor for the brawl, saying: "If you think that I'll keep silent then you are mistaken".

If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself.

Dana White has already confirmed that his entourage Zubaira Tukhugov will never fight for the promotion again after his attack on McGregor inside the Octagon after the fight.

"But if they attack us from the outside, of course, not just you - all of us can jump in such a way, they won't know what hit them", said Putin, nevertheless cautioning Nurmagomedov that "it's better not to take things so far". "If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself".

In any case, punish me, [Zubaira Tukhugov] has nothing to do with that. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding.

Nurmagomedov also told the UFC to "keep" his $2 million payday, which is still being withheld by the Nevada State Athletic Commission during its investigation.

"You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat", Nurmagomedov said.

UFC president Dana White says he should keep his belt, even if he is banned.

We mostly know the answers to these questions. Video footage appears to show McGregor punching a member of Nurmagomedov's team during the incident. We intend to go to the end.

He still has issues with the comments made by the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion in the build to this fight as well. "He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus and he nearly kill a couple people", Nurmagomedov said in his post-fight press conference". They are facing potential fines and suspensions.
