Khabib Nurmagomedov: UFC fighter threatens to quit UFC in support of team-mate

Rockhold - who was cageside on Saturday night as well in support of his team mate - said he wasn't a fan of the things McGregor did in the lead up to the fight, particularly the bus attack back in April when McGregor and a large group of men attacked a bus Khabib and other UFC were on. 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.

"I will ask your father not to punish you too strictly because you achieved the main task, worthily and convincingly", Putin told the duo (via RT). Nurmagomedov's wrestling proved too good for the Irishman, who was taken down with relative ease and controlled throughout the fight before being caught in a fourth-round neck crank.

According to UFC president Dana White, McGregor has since called him and asked for a rematch with Khabib. "You canceled Zubaira's fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor".

Nurmagomedov was due to receive $2 million for his fight against McGregor, but the Nevada Athletic Commission is withholding his salary pending an investigation into the post-fight brawls.

Still, Nurmagomedov sees no reason for him to be fired from the UFC as a result, and he's willing to put his own head on the chopping block to protect Tukhugov's if he needs to. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat.

Nationwide road safety warning issued ahead of Storm Callum
The storm is expected to bring heavy rain between 6am on Friday and 6pm on Saturday, particularly over south-facing hills. The strongest winds are likely in western Ireland, though north west parts of the United Kingdom can expect severe gales.

Apart from Tukhugov, there were at least two more Nurmagomedov team members who were involved in the fight.

We mostly know the answers to these questions. In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that.

After the fight, the champion jumped into the crowd to confront McGregor's teammate, Bellator MMA fighter Dillon Danis who had been antagonizing him from cageside. We intend to go to the end.

As of mid-morning Thursday, UFC had not responded to Nurmagomedov's Instagram post. How are we supposed to interpret it as anything but an egregiously uneven application of justice, with consequences determined not by what you do but by how much you're worth to the UFC?

Conor McGregor opted not to press charges after it appeared he was attacked from behind in the cage. "I know my father is going to smash me", he said.
