Khabib Nurmagomedov Is Threatening To Leave UFC If They Punish His Team

By now everyone on the planet has seen the clips: After tapping out Conor McGregor at UFC 229, champ Khabib Nurmagomedov vaults the cage and jumps into the audience to scrap. And while Khabib is throwing down, his teammates leap into the cage to throw knuckles at McGregor.

It goes without saying that there are some parties that deserve punishment for their actions. No doubt the Nevada State Athletic Commission is going to drop the hammer – they’re still holding on to Khabib’s paycheck.

But the UFC is punishing Zubaira Tukhugov, who punched Conor and was supposed to face Artem Lobov at the next UFC Fight Night.

Khabib is having none of that. The Dagestani champ says that if the UFC punishes his teammates for the fracas, then he’s quitting the organization.

Yikes!

Here’s the Instagram post:

I would like to address @ufc Why didn’t you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people? 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. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started. In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that. If you think that I’ll keep silent then you are mistaken. You canceled Zubaira’s fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor. 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. We never give up on our brothers in Russia and I will go to the end for my Brother. If you still decide to fire him, don’t forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I’ll break it myself. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won’t get stuck in your throat. We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end. #Brothers

Midnight Mania! McGregor ‘Disappointed’ Khabib Dropped Him

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Conor McGregor’s head coach, John Kavanagh, told Joe Rogan that McGregor felt he let himself down when Khabib Nurmagomedov was able to drop him for the first time in McGregor’s career. Via BloodyElbow.com:

“He (Conor) hates technical mistakes. So that right hand, you know… he was very disappointed he got caught with a shot like that,” Kavanagh said on a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, per BJPenn.com’s Chris Taylor. “But it is actually funny, I was just thinking about this, you know that right hand, if you showed it to a boxing coach he would say ‘That’s horrible. Your head is down and you’re swinging’. But again, I don’t really care about people’s opinions on things. I just care about the strikes effectiveness. It was a damn effective technique. You know it’s one of the hardest clean shots Conor has been caught with in his MMA career.”

“He (Conor) hates technical mistakes. So that right hand, you know… he was very disappointed he got caught with a shot like that,” Kavanagh said on a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, per BJPenn.com’s Chris Taylor. “But it is actually funny, I was just thinking about this, you know that right hand, if you showed it to a boxing coach he would say ‘That’s horrible.

You know it’s one of the hardest clean shots Conor has been caught with in his MMA career.”

Khabib was able to neutralize ‘The Notorious’ offense throughout the fight, with McGregor mostly failing to land the punches he has against every other opponent. Clearly, while Khabib’s striking is far from textbook, it is very effective for him. McGregor has called for a rematch with the Russian champion.


Insomnia

The rematch between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson is years overdue. It will be good to see Jones against someone his own size again.

Derrick Lewis’ legend is homegrown by himself and the people cooking up the memes he resposts.

Fedor Emelianenko and Chael Sonnen faced off for their first fight week staredown.

This made more sense once I realized John Wayne Parr was imitating Johny Hendricks

It’s a shame Sean O’Malley didn’t get to showcase his talents at UFC 229- hopefully the USADA results show his failed test was just a tainted supplement.

Al Iaquinta Realty is the best fighter parody account going. This rematch with Kevin Lee will tell us a lot about both fighters. Kevin Lee continues his pursuit of Khabib Nurmagomedov by fighting someone that just faced the Dagestani in their last bout.

Will Nate Diaz disappear into the ether again?

Was this the best picture Khabib could get with Putin? They couldn’t snap one where he was smiling? The caption reads (according to Google Translate)

Thank you very much Vladimir Vladimirovich for the warm welcome and for the congratulations.

And I am very pleased that my victory brought so much joy to our multinational Country.

This is our common victory.

Weird animation time.

Justin Gaethje has a policy against taking short-notice fights.

Derrick Lewis vs. Daniel Cormier has genuine heat thanks to Popeyes chicken.

Who did this?

This may well have been the peak of combat sports.

Brock Lesnar better hope Derrick Lewis lands that big right hand, because he’s not beating Daniel Cormier.

Credit to Curtis Blaydes for taking the hard, thankless fight but he deserves a title shot far more than the Black Beast. (Sorry, Derrick)

Dominick Reyes landed the single cleanest shot at UFC 229 in the last second of his fight with Ovince St. Preux

Max Holloway talks about dealing with depression on World Mental Health Day.


Random Land

I love weird goals. This should have been allowed to stand.

In real life this is literally a green bubble.

Work until you can afford a giraffe.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Is In Some Very Hot Water… With His Dad

Lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov beat the stuffing out of Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on Saturday night, and after his win, jumped the cage and fought in the audience.

Mayhem ensued.

Understandably, the Dagestani is facing some serious repercussions. It’s unclear what the UFC might do to him, but the Nevada State Athletic Commission is certainly going to drop the hammer. That could take the form of fines and suspension, it could take the form of a public lashing (okay, not really)… who knows at this point.

But perhaps the greatest consequence of his ill-advised actions is waiting for him when he gets home.

Khabib’s dad is totally going to kick his ass.

This was alluded to in the post-fight presser, but apparently Pops Nurmagomedov has spoken to the local Dagestani press – and he’s not happy with his son.

As per BloodyElbow:

Speaking to Russian media, Abdulmanap revealed that he plans to punish his son for his role in the brawl.

“I will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC’s. I warned him. For me, discipline comes first. You do whatever you want in the Octagon, [but] outside — this is the border of civilians, where there are children, women, strangers.”

”Financial issues have not been resolved,” Abdulmanap told tass.ru. “He does not know what is going on. He was supposed to fly out of America on the 9th. I do not know what date, at what time [he will return from the United States to Dagestan now].”

If we see Khabib with a pair of black eyes and a distinct limp when he walks, we’ll know his dad don’t play.

Khabib, Putin On The Ritz

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, has a lot to celebrate after submitting former 155-pound kingpin, Conor McGregor, in the UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Not only did “The Eagle” defend his division title, he got some payback for all the shit McGregor was talking before their fight, which included barbs toward his family, his politics, and even his religion (sample it here).

I guess Putin wasn’t too upset about the post-fight antics, which saw Nurmagomedov leap into the crowd to throw hands with SBG Ireland coach Dillon Danis (video). It was a decision that is likely to cost the Dagestani fighter a large sum of money, as well as some extra time on the bench.

Once “The Eagle” is permitted to fly back into the Octagon, expect him to put his lightweight title on the line against former interim champion Tony Ferguson, who reestablished his place among the division elite by stopping Anthony Pettis, also at UFC 229.
