Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens To Leave UFC If His Teammate Is Released

Vladimir Putin hails Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC win during meeting

If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started.In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugovhas nothing to do with that.If you think that I'll keep silent then you are mistaken.

Nurmagomedov sparked the post-fight scuffle after defeating McGregor when he jumped over the Octagon fence and charged at McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis.

He then vowed to quit if his brother was sacked, and explained that he didn't care about whether or not he was paid: "If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too".

Russia's President Vladimir Putin has met with Khabib Nurmagomedov to congratulate him on winning the UFC lightweight title, and defended the fighter's actions in the brawl that followed his victory over Conor McGregor.

I would like to address @ufc Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people? We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing. Once the fighter gets into the details about fellow fighter Zubaira Tukhugov, things get juicy.

Nurmagomedov today posted on his a href="If you think that I'll keep silent then you are mistaken", Nurmagomedov wrote in his post".

Khabib took to Instagram to call out what he believes to be some unfair punishment (not coming from his dad) by the UFC and made some pretty strong threats if things aren't rectified.

Tukhugov was scheduled to fight Artem Lobov, a teammate of McGregor's, at UFC Fight Night 138 on October 27.

UFC officials on Thursday did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Nurmagomedov's threat to break his contract. We intend to go to the end. "If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too".

But the biggest salvo in this dispute yet perhaps just landed from Nurmagomedov, given he's the lightweight champion and essentially threatened to quit the organization in defense of not just Tukhugov, but, he said, the honor of his people and culture. Video footage appears to show McGregor punching a member of Nurmagomedov's team during the incident.

UFC fans were left with plenty of questions after watching McGregor's decidedly off-colour performance - and new details have emerged which help to explain exactly why the Irishman was so poor in the one-sided title fight. McGregor and his teammates stormed a UFC bus in hopes of confronting Nurmagomedov. McGregor was never punished by the promotion (though he did spend a night in jail and accept a plea deal on the charges).
