Kadyrov takes Nurmagomedov’s disqualification as “humiliation of the entire Caucasus”
Nurmagomedov was terminated from tournaments for 9 month and sentenced to pay a $500 thousand fine following a fight against Conor McGregor.
Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov believes Nurmagomedov’s disqualification imposed by the Nevada Athletic Commission for a fight against Irish Conor McGregor offends and humiliates the entire Caucasus.
“It was all done in order for all our guys who represent the entire Caucasus be humiliated and thrown dirt at… Look at the enormous disparity between the punishment our fighters were sentenced to and this self-conceited Irish provocator was,” Kadyrov posted on his Instagram. He also emphasized that the Caucasian fighters - in spite of the global pressure of ‘caucasophobes’ - managed to present themselves well due to the fact that it’s not money and fame what matters to them, but honour and dignity.
Nurmagomedov was terminated from tournaments for 9 month and sentenced to pay a $500 thousand fine following a fight against Conor McGregor at UFC tournament in October, last year, recalls Nation News agency. NSN notes his opponent was terminated for half a year and sentenced to pay a fine which is 10 times smaller then the one the Russian fighter was sentenced to.
