Khabib Nurmagomedov has threatened to quit the UFC


Following the controversy of last weekends fight, Khabib Nurmagomedov has warned that he will leave the UFC if they choose to punish Zubaira Tukhugov for punching Conor McGregor. 

Nurmagomedov has taken to Instagram to address the controversy, writing: 

'I would like to address @ufc 

Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people? They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?'

He went on to share to his 12 million followers: 

'Why do you have to punish my team, when both teams fought. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started...

'If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me, too. We never give up on our brothers in Russia and I will go to the end for my brother. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself.'
