Putin Gives His Verdict On Khabib's Punishment

He and McGregor (21-4) were caught on camera in a brief exchange during Saturday night's brawl, which began when Nurmagomedov left the Octagon after the fight to confront McGregor's corner. They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?

"But if we are attacked from the outside, then, of course, not only you, but all of us can jump and there'll be hell to pay", Putin 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?

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".

According to UFC president Dana White, McGregor has since called him and asked for a rematch with Khabib.

"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 another Brother FIRST, just check the video".

Winning the Order of Merit is something I want to achieve by December and playing well here goes a long way to achieve that. I know what to do, I know the golf course, the weather, how far the ball's going to go, the pin positions etc.

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

Nurmagomedov also said in his Instagram post he believes McGregor hit Tukhugov first during their confrontation in the octagon post-fight. Additionally, Khabib told the UFC they can keep his $2 million UFC 229 payday, which is still being withheld by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself.

To Nurmagomedov's ears - and a lot of other people's, as well - that sounded like UFC featherweight Zubaira Tukhugov, a teammate of Nurmagomedov's, may be on his way to the banned list. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding. Cameras then captured at least two of Nurmagomedov's teammates climbing into the cage to assault McGregor. "We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing".

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

Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor at UFC 229 before a wild brawl erupted in Las Vegas. 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?

When Nurmagomedov addressed the media after the incident, he said he expected a beating from his father next time he saw him.
