Putin To Khabib On UFC Brawl: When Someone Provokes Us From Outside, There Can Be Hell To Pay

Russian President Vladimir Putin says “anyone could have acted” in the same way as Khabib Nurmagomedov did when the fighter confronted members of Conor McGregor’s team after defeating the Irishman at UFC 229.

At a meeting on Wednesday, Putin congratulated Dagestani fighter Nurmagomedov on his “worthy and convincing” submission win over McGregor in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Touching on the ugly scenes that followed the fight – when Nurmagomedov leapt over the cage to confront McGregor team member Dillon Danis, apparently after being goaded – Putin said that while it was best to keep emotions in check, “anyone could have jumped in the same way.”

“If we are attacked from the outside, not only you, we could all jump in such a way… there could be hell to pay,” Putin told Khabib and his father, Abdulmanap, at a meeting on the sidelines of the ‘Russia – Country of Sports’ forum in the city of Ulyanovsk.
