Khabib Nurmagomedov vows to QUIT the UFC over Conor McGregor brawl, here’s the reason why

Tukhugov was involved in the unsavoury brawl which followed Nurmagomedov’s UFC 229 victory over Conor McGregor, who was .

The Russian featherweight is facing a lifetime ban from MMA’s premier promotion after storming the Octagon and punching ‘The Notorious’.

And should his countryman be given the boot, ‘The Eagle’ has promised to relinquish his title immediately.

He said: “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.”

Nurmagomedov’s purse for his maiden title defence is currently being held by the Nevada State Athletic Commission until the outcome of their investigation into the brawl.

The undefeated Nurmagomedov doesn’t care about his winnings, 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.”

Nurmagomedov, 30, believes the UFC would wrong to punish himself or Tukhugov as they didn’t impose any sanctions on McGregor and his entourage .

“Why didn’t you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people?” he asked.

“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, Zubaira Tukghov has nothing to do with that.

“If you think that I’ll keep silent then you are mistaken. You cancelled 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.”
