Khabib Nurmagomedov Says He’ll Quit The UFC If They Fire His Teammate

Vladimir Putin hails Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC win during meeting

"If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too".

The Russian president went on to call Russia "one big family" in which "we need to avoid going to extremes or making any jumps". "If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself".

According to Bennett, Nurmagomedov's $2 million payday for the fight is being withheld by the commission, pending the completion of the investigation. Nurmagomedov said that if the UFC released Tukhugov for being a part of the fight, Nurmagomedov would break his contract with the organization and quit. Nurmagomedov won the fight by submission during the fourth round to retain the title.

Tukhugov was scheduled to face McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov at the end of the month in a UFC bout, but both sides confirmed the fight is off.

Fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were forced off the Barclay's card after they were injured by glass shards that flew when McGregor threw a hand truck that struck a bus window.

"The Russian Hammer" has requested the opportunity to be the one to dole out Tukhugov's punishment and if White decides to allow the fight to go ahead, security will have to be on high alert in New Brunswick as tempers continue to flare between the teams.

"I will ask your father not to punish you too strictly because you achieved the main task, worthily and convincingly", Putin told the duo (via RT).

McGregor attacked a bus with Nurmagomedov and several of his team-mates on - he was subsequently arrested and found guilty of disorderly conduct for his actions and sentenced to community service. "@zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that", Nurmagomedov wrote.

"Don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my another brother first, just check the video", he added. "But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my other Brother FIRST, just check the video".

"You can keep my money that you are withholding", Nurmagomedov said. You are pretty busy with that. This is MMA though and we've seen stranger things happen. "We intend to go to the end".

Double champion Daniel Cormier wasn't a fan of the incident, but supported Khabib and his teammates' loyalty nonetheless.
