64 0

Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to bat for his teammate in a major way.

The reigning lightweight champion issued an ultimatum to the UFC on Thursday in defense of his friend, UFC featherweight Zubaira Tukhugov, for Tukhugov’s involvement in UFC 229’s chaotic post-fight brawl with Conor McGregor and the Irishman’s team. Following news that the UFC cancelled Tukhugov’s scheduled UFC Moncton bout against McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov, Nurmagomedov warned the promotion that if they cut Tukhugov, they will lose Nurmagomedov as well.

Check out reaction to Nurmagomedov’s ultimatum below.

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
