Khabib Nurmagomedov's Father Not Happy with His Son's Actions At UFC 229

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has met Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the leader congratulating Nurmagomedov on his win over Conor McGregor - which Putin described as "worthy and convincing".

Khabib's father Abdulmanap says the punishment from Commission and UFC would be pale comparisons to what he'll do to his son.

"He is going to get suspended so maybe you give him four to six months' suspension", said White.

According to Nevada Athletic Commission, McGregor is one of 13 fighters from Saturday night's card to be given a suspension due to medical reasons.

"I hope [the commission] is lenient on [Nurmagomedov]", he told the Joe Rogan Experience.

"The way that we promoted the fight was exactly the way this thing played out", he said. After talking with aksakals and wise countrymen, they made a decision to move to other heights.

The world's longest flight will be ditching economy class
For the Internet-addicted traveler anxious about being incommunicado for nearly a whole day, the flight offers Wi-Fi, for a price. The 13 cabin crew will get at least four hours rest during the flight and two days to enjoy NY before the return leg.

Members of Nurmagomedov's team were also involved in a brawl with McGregor in the octagon after the Russian had vaulted the cage fence. But it is actually amusing, I was just thinking about this, you know that right hand, if you showed it to a boxing coach he would say "That's terrible". "You should not be able to keep his whole purse".

The melee that ensued afterwards ended with three of Nurmagomedov's teammates being arrested but they were later released when McGregor refused to press charges against anybody over the situation.

Nurmagomedov apologised following the incident but cited pre-fight comments in which McGregor "talked about my religion, talked about my country, talked about my father".

You'd think going after White's auto would add more punishment for Nurmagomedov after that, but then again, smashing a motorized vehicle controlled by White has never really led to serious repercussions from the UFC.

"He is the world champion. You won. The guy who's yelling at you means nothing".
