Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Quit Following UFC 229 Fracas

Vladimir Putin hails Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC win during meeting

Tukhugov was caught up in the fracas following Nurmagomedov's win over Conor McGregor at UFC 229 this past weekend and appeared to strike the Irishman twice whilst his back was turned.

Nurmagomedov sparked the post-fight scuffle after defeating McGregor when he jumped over the Octagon fence and charged at McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis.

If you had any doubt about just how big a deal his fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov was, then Khabib meeting with the President of Russia, Vladamir Putin, a few days' after the events of UFC 229, will give you a good idea. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started.

"But if they attack us from the outside, of course, not just you - all of us can jump in such a way, they won't know what hit them", said Putin, nevertheless cautioning Nurmagomedov that "it's better not to take things so far". "But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video".

He went on: "We all understand that it was a provocation and I'm sure your father understands that too". If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat.

We mostly know the answers to these questions. We intend to go to the end.

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on Thursday issued a statement addressing the UFC, threatening to break his contract and forfeit the $2 million paycheck that is being withheld. 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. Meanwhile, members of Nurmagomedov's team, including Tukhugov, entered the octagon to engage with McGregor.

In a letter to the CDC, Klobuchar asked the director to share the organization's plan to address the infections. Symptoms include: weakness of the limbs, facial drooping and trouble swallowing or speaking.

If one fighter attacking another outside the parameters of a professional fight is cause for a ban, how did McGregor manage to throw a hand truck into a bus full of UFC fighters, injuring some of them, with his teammate and UFC featherweight Artem Lobov along for the ride, and yet no one lost their jobs over it?

In any case, punish me, [Zubaira Tukhugov] has nothing to do with that. "But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video".

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

The Nevada State Athletic Commission, which sanctioned the bout, has withheld his fight purse while it investigates.

UFC did not immediately respond to a request from ESPN for comment. "He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus and he nearly kill a couple people", Nurmagomedov said in his post-fight press conference".

The NSAC is expected to file complaints on Nurmagomedov and McGregor for their roles in the incident.
