Khabib Nurmagomedov threatens to leave UFC if teammate Zubaira Tukhugov fired

Khabib Nurmagomedov threatens to leave UFC if teammate Zubaira Tukhugov fired”

Tukhugov is alleged to have jumped into the cage following Nurmagomedov's win and punched McGregor in the back of the head.

"I will ask your dad not to punish you harshly", the president told the 30-year-old fighter from the mainly Muslim Dagestan region, adding that "you won worthily and convincingly".

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

"(I) f you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too", Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram.

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

Nurmagomedov jumped over the Octagon fence to confront McGregor's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach Dillon Danis, inciting a massive brawl on the arena floor. In the melee three of Nurmagomedov's teammates were arrested, and later released when McGregor refused to press charges, but the ramifications of everyone's actions that night already have lasting consequences. "But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my other Brother FIRST, just check the video".

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? "You cancelled Zubaira's fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor", Nurmagomedov continued. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself. "He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus and he nearly kill a couple people", Nurmagomedov said in his post-fight press conference". You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat.

"We have defended our honour and this is the most important thing". However, Khabib has now addressed the UFC as they sort out the punishment for the unruly teams following 229, and he couldn't be more on point.

"[Nurmagomedov] has to go before the Nevada commission [after his purse from the fight was withheld due to the brawl], and we have to see what's going to happen with Khabib and this whole mess", White told ESPN on Monday.

Putin urged the fighter's father to cut his son some slack after he promised to punish him worse than the UFC would for inciting a massive post-fight brawl.

Despite a controversial ending to the event, which saw the Eagle climb over the cage to attack the Irishman's team, the Russian fighter ultimately walked away with bragging rights from his heated rivalry with the Notorious. McGregor caught wind of the argument and flew from Ireland to NY to confront Nurmagomedov at a pre-fight event.
