Khabib Reveals Why He Went After McGregor’s Teammate
By now, I’m sure you have seen the videos of Conor McGregor losing to Khabib Nurmagomendov. The match ended in chaos after McGregor tapped out, and Khabib hopped over the cage and proceeded to start a fight with his competitor’s teammates.
At first, the amount of backlash towards Khabib’s actions was overwhelming.
After speaking at the post-fight press conference though, Khabib’s motives became clear.
“I want to say sorry to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, This is not my best side. I’m a human being… he talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father. He came to Brooklyn, and he broke bus and almost killed a couple people.. Why do people still talk about me jumping over the cage?”
According to TMZ, the disparaging remarks from McGregor’s camp are what prompted Khabib to hop over the cage in the first place.
The media-site interviewed a fan that was sitting near the outer ring brawl, and they’re reporting that Dillon Danis was hurling insults at Khabib throughout the fight.
Allegedly, Danis called Khabib a “fucking Muslim rat,” which caused Khabib to throw his mouthpiece and run for McGregor’s teammate.
The Muslim insult was the straw that
broke the camel’s back apparently, as Danis was reported to be mouthing off for the entire match.
