Nurmagomedov leapt from the octagon to challenge a member of McGregor's entourage after beating the Irishman to retain his world lightweight title. 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.
Sympathising with the fighter, Putin told the pair: "I am going to ask your father to cut you some slack because what matters most is that you fought like a fighter and you won".
So how can you do nothing about McGregor's misbehavior, then take such an opposite stance when it's Nurmagomedov and his team causing all the trouble?
Nevertheless, in a meeting with Nurmagomedov and his father Abdulmanap on Wednesday, President Putin congratulated the fighter on his victory.More news: Channing Tatum 'Dating' Jessie J Following Split From Jenna Dewan
According to UFC president Dana White, McGregor has since called him and asked for a rematch with Khabib. "One of Conor's teammates was antagonizing him and yelling at him after a fight, which was, you know ... you beat your guy, it's pretty much time to shut your mouth".
"If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too". There also has been speculation that UFC might sever its relationship with Tukhugov ahead of his scheduled fight against Artem Lobov on October 27.
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".

Nurmagomedov, who also criticized the UFC for not punishing anyone from McGregor's team for the now infamous April bus attack, or McGregor insulting his "homeland, religion, nation, and family", said that if Tukhugov is fired by the company, he will leave too.
"You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat", Nurmagomedov said. Cameras then captured at least two of Nurmagomedov's teammates climbing into the cage to assault McGregor.
What may be even more important to UFC officials than simply setting a new high mark for overall buys, is that Meltzer said about 20 percent of the UFC 229 purchases were made via online options, whereas a couple of years ago that percentage was more like 5 percent.
