In a conversation with Vladimir Putin, Nurmagomedov himself once again stressed that he had been provoked into a sortie from the octagon after the battle.
Jiu-Jitsu Coach Conor MacGregor Dillon Davis said he did not insult Habib Nurmagomedov during the fight for the championship belt. In an ESPN interview, Davis especially stressed that he does not allow himself to talk about someone’s religion.
Habib fans try to slander me and thereby justify his actions. I have never humiliated anyone’s religious views and I’m not going to do that. Now I’m just waiting for the findings of the Nevada commission on the results of the incident. I am sure, the investigation will remove all the idiotic accusations from me and punish those responsible, ”said Davis.
At the same time, according to Habib Nurmagomedov, he jumped over the net after the victory over McGregor precisely because of systematic insults from Davis. About this Dagestan fighter on the eve said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
I behaved with dignity. But some moments, of course, I also could not control. Because during the battle continued provocations. I hope that the trial that is currently underway will be in our favor — Nurmagomedov.
At the same time, Putin commented on the situation like this: “If we are attacked from the outside, then not only you, we can all jump in such a way that it will not seem like a little. But it’s better not to bring this up.”
Now a special commission is investigating the incident after the McGregor and Nurmagomedov fight.
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.
