After his convincing victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229, and the brawl, Khabib Nurmagomedov and his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov met Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Putin, a 6th degree black belt in Judo and master in Sambo and Karate, is a big supporter of Russian MMA.
“I will ask your father not to punish you too strictly, because you achieved the main task, worthily and convincingly,” said Putin to Khabib.
“My father teach me, you have to be always respectful. I know my father is going to smash me when I go home.”
said Nurmagomedov at the post-fight press conference.
Abdulmanap confirmed to Putin that punishment was coming:
“I will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC’s. 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.”
