Why not the president!

That story line reads that Danis was insulting Nurmagomedov's (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC) Muslim faith form cageside, so after Nurmagomedov submitted McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in the fourth round, he jumped the fence and went after Danis. His team at Paradigm Sports Management, which also represents McGregor, tonight put out the same official statement from Danis as a press release.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin has met with Khabib Nurmagomedov to congratulate him on winning the UFC lightweight title, and defended the fighter's actions in the brawl that followed his victory over Conor McGregor.

"You can do whatever you want in the octagon; outside of it, there's children, women, random people", Abdulmanap - who is still his son's trainer, but was denied a visa by U.S. authorities to attend the McGregor fight - was reported as saying. "Hence, my sanctions to Khabib will be much stronger than the ones from UFC".

Putin asked Nurmagomedov's father "not to punish him too severely" for the brawl, telling the fighter: "You accomplished the main goal: You won the fight, with confidence and dignity".

But his impressive victory was marred as he subsequently jumped out of the octagon to confront McGregor's stable-mate Dillon Danis, sparking a mass brawl.

"If we are attacked from the outside, not only you, we could all jump in such a way. there could be hell to pay", he added (via RT). "It's better not to reach that stage".

Nurmagomedov retained his lightweight title with the win over the former two-division champion, who was returning to MMA after almost two years with just a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather in between.

The crowd was so hostile that the UFC president Dana White did not present the Russian with his belt.
