Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov: “I Warned Khabib, I Will Be Very Hard On This, For Me, Discipline Comes First!”
Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor in the fourth round via rear-naked choke. Yet, the event will be remembered by the post-fight incident. Khabib’s attack on Dillon Danis quickly turned into a big riot. Khabib’s two teammates also jumped over the fence and attacked Conor McGregor. It is hard to expect that NSAC (Nevada Athletic State Commission) won’t issue some heavy penalty. Khabib might even get a title stripe and some time out of the UFC.
But his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov says his punishment will be worse than any kind of sanctions Khabib gets from the UFC. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov recently talked to Russian media about the whole incident. Abdulmanap is the leader of the team, so this kind of behavior is completely unacceptable to him. He plans to teach his son a lesson. Abdulmanap also said The Eagle has seriously crossed the red line. (via MMAMania.com)
“I will be very hard on this,” he told Ren TV (via Perthnow). “I warned him. For me, discipline comes first. You do whatever you want in the Octagon, [but] outside — this is the border of civilians, where there are children, women, strangers.”
Khabib's father to russian media:

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov has taken full responsibility for UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
“Still, I am responsible for this. This is my team. Despite the fact that I was not allowed to go to America, I do not relieve myself of responsibility.”
Khabib Nurmagomedov was aware of what might happen when he returns home on the UFC 229 post-fight press conference.
“I know my father is going to smash me when I go home,” said Khabib.
Conor McGregor was insulting The Eagle for months. Khabib tried to justify his acts by protecting his religion, father, and team. Unfortunately, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov doesn’t even want to hear about that. It looks like he has some secret methods under his belt. What do you think, what will Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov do to his son? Stay tuned!
