Nurmagomedov: “McGregor’s coach called me Muslim scumbag during fight”
The UFC lightweight champion explained why he beat Dillon Denis.
Fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov told about the abuse on the part of Conor McGregor’s team during a fight for the UFC lightweight champion title. According to Nurmagomedov Dilon Denis insulted him.
“What was the trainer of McGregor shouting? That I am a Muslim scumbag. I do not want to repeat,” Kommersant quotes Nurmagomedov.
Recall that the Russian fighter defeated McGregor, but after the end of the fight, he attacked Dillon Denis and other members of the Irishman’s team.
The UFC did not give the Russian fighter a championship belt immediately after the fight. The head of the organization, Dana White, said that Nurmagomedov violated the rules leaving octagon before the official announcement of the result of the MMA battle. After that, the Dagestani took the award and returned home, where he apologized and thanked fans for their support.
Russian President Vladimir Putin personally congratulated Khabib Nurmagomedov on his victory over Irishman Conor McGregor. The head of state met with the athlete on Wednesday after the "Russia – Country of Sports" forum.
“If we are attacked from the outside, not only you, we could all jump in such a way … there could be hell to pay. But it’s better not to reach that stage,” Putin stated to R-Sport.
