  • Putin meets with Nurmagomedov, defends UFC champ's actions during brawl

Nurmagomedov jumped out of the cage before leaping feet first at McGregor's team mate and cornerman Dillon Danis.

In the post-fight press conference, Nurmagomedov stated that he had received a call from Putin, saying: "All media talk about like, take a photo with Putin, something like this, he just called me".

Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin has asked Khabib Nurmagomedov's father "not to punish him too severely" for his part in a brawl which followed his defeat of Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.

Putin hailed Nurmagomedov's "convincing" victory in the highly anticipated mixed martial arts bout in Las Vegas on Saturday, and said the champion's decision to then climb over the cage and fight with members of McGregor's corner had been provoked by insults.

Nurmagomedov told Putin today he was sorry that he lost self-control, but that he had heard McGregor's camp insulting his father and his country.

But in a meeting between the trio on Wednesday, Putin asked Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov "not to punish him too severely" for the brawl.
