56 0

Firas Zahabi took to social media, much like many did on Saturday night, to address the events during and after the bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. According to the Tristar Gym head coach, he doesn’t condone the violence that followed the UFC 229 main event, but he understands why Khabib wanted to teach both McGregor and Danis a lesson.

Zahabi says there are lines that you shouldn’t cross, even in the name of “marketing” or fight “promotion,” and to him, McGregor’s camp have certainly done that numerous times.

Zahabi also spoke about Dillon Danis, bringing up how he was suspended by his own coach Marcelo Garcia for his involvement in numerous scuffles and other similar behavior both in the jiujitsu and MMA circuits.

Zahabi, who coaches Georges St-Pierre, also recently spoke about his star pupil’s interest in facing the “juiciest” name possible. He brought up both McGregor and Khabib as possible opponents, but with Saturday night’s results, could his camp have their eyes on the current champion he now calls “the best lightweight in history”?
