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.

UFC 229 Results: Khabib Nurmagomedov Taps Out Conor McGregor, Then Starts Brawl in Audience

If you had money on lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov dominating former champ Conor McGregor via grappling in the main event of UFC 229, congrats, you won some cash.

If you had money on Khabib spitting on McGregor after the Irishman tapped out. well, congrats, you won even more money.

If you predicted that Khabib would jump the cage and attack McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis, and that one of Khabib’s teammates would jump INTO the Octagon and suckerpunch Conor… you’re a liar.

Folks, this fight was exciting and thrilling and fun to watch, with Nurmagomedov even rocking McGregor on the feet once, and McGregor almost taking control with his standup in Round 3. But once the champ got the ex-champ down in Round 4, the tapout via rear naked choke was inevitable.

And then Khabib jumped the fence and started a brawl in the audience… pure craziness.

It was so bad that security had to flood the cage to protect McGregor. Dana White had to tell Khabib that he couldn’t give him his belt in the cage, because it was certain that the audience would shower them with garbage. And when Khabib was escorted out by security, he was indeed showered with garbage anyway.

If you remember the brawl after that Strikeforce event, with Nick and Nate Diaz and crew scrapping against Jason Miller… this was worse.

Insanity. Pure insanity.

UFC 229 Primer: Guess What? Conor and Khabib Aren’t the Only Fighters on the Card!

Combat sports superstar Conor McGregor and lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov are clashing at tonight’s UFC 229. And of course, because it’s Conor, the entire world is tuning in and thinking about that main event. But guess what? There are other fighters on the card, too! Crazy, right?

The co-main event pits former lightweight champ Anthony Pettis against former interim champ (and TUF winner) Tony Ferguson. That’s… actually a pretty amazing match-up. Both men are elite members of the 155-pound weight class, and could conceivably be facing McGregor or Nurmagomedov in the future. Heck, Ferguson was supposed to take on Nurmagomedov about two dozen times, but the fight always fell apart for some reason or another.

There’s also a stellar heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov on the card. Volkov has won four times in four trips to the Octagon, and has taken out the likes of Fabricio Werdum, Stefan Struve and Roy Nelson. Lewis, meanwhile, had a ton of momentum in the division before Mark Hunt derailed him. But he beat Francis Ngannou in his last fight, so there may be hope for Lewis yet.

Ovince St. Preux is also fighting, as is Michelle Waterson and Felice Herrig. Granted, they’ll all have to do something seriously dramatic to steal even a sliver of the spotlight from McGregor, but whatever! They’re on the card!
