Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Father Said He’s Chosen To Forgive Conor McGregor For The Irishman’s Derogatory Words Ahead Of UFC 229
In the build-up of the grudge match at UFC 229, power punch striker Conor McGregor ceased infinite amount of trash talk toward his opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov dubbing ‘Eagle’ a “mad backward c***” and his father Abdulmanap, a “quivering coward.”
However, in an Instagram post-Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, says he forgive Conor Mcgregor for all the pre-fight antics and inflammatory comments.
“As-salamu alaykum all,” Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said on Instagram early on Tuesday morning. “I forgive Conor McGregor, all in the past. It is necessary to make an analysis of everything that happened, and learn lessons. After talking with aksakals and wise countrymen, they decided to move to other heights. I hope this is a blessing.”
While Khabib’s father got a big heart for forgiving Irishman, but he hasn’t forgiven his son for post-fight chaos.
Khabib Nurmagomedov picked up the biggest win of his career after beating McGregor via submission in the fourth round of their entertaining lightweight title bout at UFC 229 on October 6th instead of celebrating he vaulting over the cage fence and attacking his rival Mcgregor’s teammate and coach Dillon Danis inciting a full-scale brawl. His post-fight antics put Khabib in a lot of trouble, and he’s facing severe repercussions from Nevada State Athletic Commission and UFC.
Khabib’s father Abdulmanap says the punishment from Commission and UFC would be pale comparisons to what he’ll do to his son.
“I will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC’s,” Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov told Tass.ru (Via Bloody Elbow). “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.”
What do you think of Abdulmanap’s decision to forgive Mcgregor?
