The lightweight champion of the organization officially addressed her through his instagram.
Russian UFC champion Habib Nurmagomedov made an official appeal to the organization. He was outraged that the sanctions applied only to his team, while the actions of Conor McGregor and his coaches are ignored. Khabib also expressed indignation over the dismissal of his comrade Zubayra Tuhugov from the promotion and said that he would follow him.
“You canceled Zubair’s fight and want to fire him just because he hit Conor, after Conor was the first to hit my other Brother, everything is visible on the camera. Know that you and me will lose with him, we don’t give up ours in Russia, and I’ll go to the end for my Brother, and if you decide to fire him, then I don’t forget to send a broken contract, otherwise If I break it myself, ”Nurmagomedov said.
The Russian added that he did not care about the lost fee, because for him the main thing was to defend his honor.
Recall, on October 7, Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor in a battle at UFC 229. After defeating the Irishman with a choke technique, Habib climbed the octagon wall to fight with McGregor’s sparring partner Dillon Davis. At the same time, his friend, also a UFC fighter, Zubair Tukhugov, started a fight with Conor McGregor. After that, the head of the organization, Dana White, said that the fighters who had run into the octagon would be fired from the promotion.
