UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov not only defeated Conor McGregor by fourth round submission in the main event of UFC 229, but also hopped the Octagon wall to incite a huge brawl that spilled into the crowd.
Nurmagomedov’s agent is Ali Abdelaziz and he took to Instagram to issue a statement on the post-fight madness:
I want to congratulate my brother @khabib_nurmagomedov . The undisputed, undefeated pound for pound king. There were never 2 Kings from the beginning, only one king. This is not the way we want to celebrate such a dominant performance but when you talk about people’s country, family and religion and intentionally try to kill someone like he said and the cornermen running their mouths after, this is the fight game & shit happens. The fans got an amazing fight and a great show. I want apologize to the Nevada athletic commission, the governer of Nevada and I want to thank the Las Vegas police department and security for doing such an unbelievable job. Now everyone understands who’s the amateur here.
McGregor took plenty of shots at Abdelaziz in the lead up to the fight, calling the agent a snitch, a terrorist and even bringing up Abdelaziz’s estranged son Noah.
