Putin congratulates Khabib Nurmagomedov on UFC 229 win

Danis has been accused of calling Khabib Nurmagomedov an anti-Muslim slur and sparking the melee after the UFC 229 main event. Once that happened, there was a melee outside the cage, and another started inside the cage when McGregor swung at one of Nurmagomedov's team members, and multiple Nurmagomedov teammates came in and attacked McGregor.

Even Khabib's dad, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, was not impressed with what he saw his son do in the aftermath, saying that the outside of the octagon is the "border of civilians where there are children, women and strangers".

The conversation that takes place in the video is clearly in Russian, but it is believed that what Putin said roughly translates to: "I would like ask your father not to punish you too much, because your performance was full of confidence and conviction and you achieved your goal".

The Russian President wasn't done there, though.

"But it's better not to reach that stage".

Nurmagomedov's brutal submission victory over Ireland's McGregor on Saturday was followed by fights breaking out in and around the cage.

According to UFC president Dana White, McGregor has since called him and asked for a rematch with Khabib.
