Khabib Nurmagomedov's powerful Instagram message to the UFC about McGregor brawl

Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Leave UFC If Teammate Fired

Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Leave UFC If Teammate Fired

Khabib Nurmagomedov has threatened to quit UFC if they suspend Zubaira Tukhugov for his role in the wild brawl that broke out at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on Saturday (Sunday NZT).

In an Instagram post Thursday morning, Nurmagomedov defended his teammate in the context of McGregor attacking a bus in Brooklyn after a media event ahead of UFC 223 in April.

Nurmagomedov jumped out of the cage before leaping feet first at McGregor's team mate and cornerman Dillon Danis.

"In a family anything can happen, (but) we never allow ourselves to go beyond certain limits", Putin said. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) made a decision to withhold Nurmagomedov's US$2 million purse after the post-fight brawl, where the Russian jumped into the crowd to attack McGregor's jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis.

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

Nurmagomedov had barely released his hold after McGregor tapped out. 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. Nurmagomedov was just days away from fighting for the UFC lightweight title that was being stripped from McGregor due to inactivity.

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? "One of Conor's teammates was antagonizing him and yelling at him after a fight, which was, you know ... you beat your guy, it's pretty much time to shut your mouth".

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". 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. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding.

"You can do whatever you want in the octagon; outside of it, there's children, women, random people", Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat.

Also, no matter how mad he might be if Tukhugov is fired, it's not like Nurmagomedov can just resign as UFC champion if he doesn't like how he's being treated - ask Randy Couture.
