Conor McGregor: Nate Diaz asks Dana White to be fired instead of Khabib’s team-mate

Tukughov is in danger of being banned from mixed martial arts’ premier promotion for life following his actions after the main event of UFC 229, in which his team-mate Khabib Nurmagomedov defended his lightweight title with a fourth-round submission victory over Conor McGregor.

Moments after Nurmagomedov sparked a mass brawl by attempting to attack McGregor’s coach Dillon Danis, Tukhugov entered the Octagon and punched ‘The Notorious’.

As a result of his sickening attack, Tukhugov’s scheduled bout with McGregor’s team-mate Artem Lobov has been cancelled.

Nurmagomedov has urged the UFC brass to re-book the fight and has if they axe his fellow Russian.

“If you decide to fire him, you should know that you’ll lose me too,” an incensed Nurmagomedov said in an Instagram post. “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.”

Nurmagomedov’s rant soon came to the attention of Diaz, who was due to fight at UFC 230 next month before .

And the Stockton native has asked White to spare Tukhugov and fire himself instead.

Earlier this evening, he tweeted: “Dana White, please let kabobs (Khabib’s) dumba** friend stay in the .

“Fire me it will be better this way. I think it’s more fair that way.”

Diaz’s tweet came a little less than two days after he revealed he’s interested in fighting Nurmagomedov.

When asked what’s next for him by ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Diaz said: “I’ll just fight Khabib when he’s ready.”

Nurmagomedov is currently awaiting disciplinary action from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who have withheld his £1.57m ($2million) purse.

‘The Eagle’ doesn’t care if he gets paid his money, saying: “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 honour and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end.”
