Don’t be too hard on him, Vladimir Putin tells Khabib’s father

Vladimir Putin hails Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC win during meeting

And Mayweather anticipates the NSAC to come down hard on Khabib Nurmagomedov, who jumped out of the Octagon to confront Conor McGregor's teammates after his fourth-round submission win over the Irishman. They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?Why do you have to punish my team, when both teams fought.

"I will ask your father not to punish you too severely, because you achieved the main task, worthily and convincingly", Putin said.

He then put the blame on Conor McGregor for the brawl, saying: "If you think that I'll keep silent then you are mistaken".

After the fight, Nurmagomedov jumped over the fence and apparently tried to attack his opponent's training partner.

The Nevada Athletic Commission could fine and suspend McGregor and Nurmagomedov for their actions on Saturday but UFC president Dana White has not ruled out a rematch, which would be sure to pull in huge revenues.

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

"If you decide to fire (Tukhugov), you should know that you'll lose me too. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself".

In the build-up to the fight, McGregor mocked Nurmagomedov's accent, called him a "smelly Dagestani rat", thumped his arm, and even tried to kick him at the UFC 229 weigh-in. "If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I will break it myself".

"You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat", Nurmagomedov said. Once the fighter gets into the details about fellow fighter Zubaira Tukhugov, things get juicy.

"We have defended our honour and this is the most important thing".

If one fighter attacking another outside the parameters of a professional fight is cause for a ban, how did McGregor manage to throw a hand truck into a bus full of UFC fighters, injuring some of them, with his teammate and UFC featherweight Artem Lobov along for the ride, and yet no one lost their jobs over it?

Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor at UFC 229 before a wild brawl erupted in Las Vegas. Three of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested but later released because McGregor refused to press charges. "I know my father is going to smash me", he said.
