Khabib Issues Ultimatum, Threatens UFC In Lengthy Statement

Khabib Issues Ultimatum, Threatens UFC In Lengthy Statement

Nurmagomedov's brutal submission victory over Ireland's McGregor on Saturday was followed by fights breaking out in and around the cage.

Tukhugov (18-4) is from Chechnya, and is a member of Nurmagomedov's team.

The Russian president went on to call Russia "one big family" in which "we need to avoid going to extremes or making any jumps".

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

"But it's better not to take it to that", he added.

The undefeated lightweight champion, who improved his MMA record to 27-0 when he submitted Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena, told the UFC to tear up his contract if they cut featherweight Zubaira Tukhugov from their roster. There also has been speculation that UFC might sever its relationship with Tukhugov ahead of his scheduled fight against Artem Lobov on October 27. In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that.

Nurmagomedov stole headlines around the world after he leapt out of the cage towards his opponent's entourage and incited a massive brawl inside the stadium.

The reason? Michaels late formation exposed it to the kind of weather system Wednesday normally see later in the year. Normally, the seasonal transition from summer to fall causes oceans in the northern hemisphere to cool by October.

Nurmagomedov told Putin today he was sorry that he lost self-control, but that he had heard McGregor's camp insulting his father and his country. But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video. if you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too.

"You cancelled Zubaira's fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor".

He then vowed to quit if his brother was sacked, and explained that he didn't care about whether or not he was paid: "If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too". You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat.

But as part of his social media rant, Nurmagomedov also made a pretty solid point: Why didn't the UFC fire anyone over McGregor's bus attack in April? "We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing".

Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor at UFC 229 before a wild brawl erupted in Las Vegas. Three of the Russian's team were arrested and later released. You cancelled Zubaira's fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor.

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".
