Khabib Issues Ultimatum, Threatens UFC In Lengthy Statement

Khabib Issues Ultimatum, Threatens UFC In Lengthy Statement

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

Nurmagomedov leapt from the octagon to challenge a member of McGregor's entourage after beating the Irishman to retain his world lightweight title. They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?

"(I) f you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too", Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram. If you think that I'll keep silent then you are mistaken.

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".

Khabib Nurmagomedov has officially addressed UFC, threatening to walk away from the sport.

"You cancelled Zubaira's fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor".

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

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

Malaysia's Leunkwang Kim will also make his dream debut in the event after winning the CIMB National Championship. If I had not received the invitation from Malaysia, who knows, I may not have played in Mayakoba.


It seems that Nurmagomedov heard UFC President Dana White's claim that any fighters involved in attacking Conor McGregor in the octagon after Saturday's main event "will never fight here".

Still, Nurmagomedov sees no reason for him to be fired from the UFC as a result, and he's willing to put his own head on the chopping block to protect Tukhugov's if he needs to. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself.And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding.

Fighter Zubaira Tukhugov was one of those alleged to have hit McGregor. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding.

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

The brawl spilled into the crowd after Khabib Nurmagomedov's victory to defend his lightweight title. 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? Both teams participated in that embarrassing post-match brawl, and thus they should both receive punishment.

Conor McGregor opted not to press charges after it appeared he was attacked from behind in the cage.

"Not to me, but could have been to Zab Judah or my uncle Roger or even Leonard Ellerbe, so I know when a guy's jumping out of the cage into the audience and fighting different people, the fine is going to be insane".
