The main fight of 229 UFC night was called the greatest fight in the history of UFC. Everybody expected a spectacular and severe fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, no one could predict that the event will become the greatest UFC scandal ever.
Khabib Nurmagomedov showed great skills and incredible power and won the fight. However, soon after the end of fight teams of two sportsmen started to argue. It led to the aggressive reaction of Khabib Nurmagomedov, who attacked McGregor training partner. At the same time, people from Nurmagomedov team got into the cage trying to fight McGregor.
Later during the post-event press conference Nurmagomedov explained his reaction as an answer to offensive words said by Conor’s people. He apologized for his behavior and told his father will probably be angry for what he did. These words became interesting for many representatives of the press and they tried to contact Khabib’s father to get his comments.
Just as Nurmagomedov expected, his father told, he didn’t support what his son did. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov (Khabib’s father) explained that he asked his son to let his aggression out in the cage and to stay calm and humble when the fight is over. The fighter’s father believes that what his son did after the fight is a violation of sports discipline and rules. He agreed that actions of that type shall lead to serious punishment. “I will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC’s,” Khabib’s father said to journalists.
While many people put the blame on Nurmagomedov, there are others who try to justify his actions. Many sports experts, including official representatives of Nevada State Athletic Commission, think that both Nurmagomedov and McGregor are guilty in what happened after the main event of 229 UFC night. Currently, there’s no official decision about the case. Nevada Athletic Commission reported they need time to investigate the case. The official decision shall be made untill the end of the month.
