Khabib comments on reducing period of partners' disqualification

Zubayra Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov received one-year disqualifications for a brawl after the UFC 229 tournament, in which Khabib Nurmagomedov and former champion in two weight categories Conor McGregor fought.

UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov commented on the decision of the Nevada Athletic Commission to reduce the disqualification of his team-mates Zubaira Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov. The commission has lowered the suspension for 35 days; they will be able to take part in the UFC 242 tournament in Abu Dhabi. The competition is scheduled for the return of Khabib.

“We are ready, and we are coming, insha'Allah,” the fighter wrote on Instagram.
