UFC news: Khabib issues ultimatum, Conor McGregor admission, Jon Jones return set

UFC News – Khabib Nurmagomedov issues ultimatum to the UFC

Khabib Nurmagomedov has if his team-mate Zubaira Tukhugov is punished for his involvement in the UFC 229 brawl.

A fired-up Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram: “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, Zubaira Tukhugov 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.

“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 honour and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end. #Brothers”

UFC News – Conor McGregor’s coach makes admission

Conor McGregor’s head coach John Kavanagh has admitted they were too defensive in their bout with Nurmagomedov.

“If there’s one thing I could change it’s that I think I was too defensive in my mindset for this training camp,” Kavanagh said during an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast.

“But Khabib has very specific types of takedowns, depending on where he is, whether it’s shooting on the low single in the middle, and on the fence.”

“I would like to change things up a little bit, specifically, a more offensive mindset. I thought defensively, we did quite well, but offensively, we weren’t really where we usually are,” he added.

“And right when the fight was over, I was thinking ‘You know what, I was kind of going into this not to lose, but not to win (either).

“His shots weren’t as crisp as they normally are, he had opportunities to hit him, especially in the third round, and it seemed to be the range – something was off.”
