Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Leave UFC If Teammate Is Fired

In any case, punish me, [Zubaira Tukhugov] has nothing to do with that.

Nurmagomedov's statement appears to confirm that Tukhugov's forthcoming bout with Artem Lobov, a team-mate of McGregor's, has been cancelled.

Nurmagomedov's father said after the fight he "will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC's", adding: "I warned him".

Sympathising with the fighter, Putin told the pair: "I am going to ask your father to cut you some slack because what matters most is that you fought like a fighter and you won". "We never give up on our brothers in Russian Federation and I will go to the end for my Brother", Nurmagomedov writes, in part. "But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video".

So far you could maybe write the whole thing off as bluster.

Nurmagomedov expressed no remorse, telling Putin he responded to "disrespect" and "provocations" from his opponent and that he hoped to be vindicated.

He said: "Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people?"

Fighter Zubaira Tukhugov was one of those alleged to have hit McGregor.

"We have defended our honour and this is the most important thing". McGregor and his teammates stormed a UFC bus in hopes of confronting Nurmagomedov. That's because the company's only real interest was in getting McGregor back in the cage so it could get back to making tons of money off him.

"The fight is cancelled due to the riots at UFC 229". McGregor caught wind of the argument and flew from Ireland to NY to confront Nurmagomedov at a pre-fight event.

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

Not that that would be anything new, mind you.

Nurmagomedov questioned why McGregor and his team were not punished for their role in the incident before giving the UFC an ultimatum.

Danis, who trains with the Irish fighter, vehemently denied the accusations; "Khabib fans are attempting to smear me in an effort to justify his actions". The Irishman was then attacked by two men who jumped into the Octagon, one of whom is believed to be Tukhugov.

Both decisions come with consequences - even the decision to do nothing at all. If we are attacked from the outside, not only you, we could all jump in such a way... there could be hell to pay.
