Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov Calls Out Nate Diaz

UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz got into a brief altercation while they were in the crowd attending UFC 239.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who is the father of Khabib, would take to Instagram to call Diaz out for being unprofessional:

Here is a translation of what Nurmagomedov wrote, via Google Translate:

“This guy wants to get out of turn what he deserves. How much we asked him and (Anthony) Pettis to fight, it was very difficult to negotiate with them, but the UFC can give this guy the opportunity.”

This wasn’t the first time that Diaz and Khabib had gotten into an altercation, as they had a physical altercation at a World Series Of Fighting event in 2015.

Diaz will move onto battle former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 241, while Nurmagomedov defends the UFC Lightweight Title against UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
