Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov put an end to the conflict between his brother Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Khamzat Chimaev, who had a fight in the hall at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi.
“What happened yesterday, this incident in Abu Dhabi, when Islam just won the belt, it doesn’t color us at all,” Nurmagomedov said at a joint dinner with Chimaev’s team. “Neither us as a team, nor Abubakar, nor Khamzat, nor Islam, not a single person. And in fact, they have already eaten enough of this – and the Internet is teeming with how many people write, call, even the belt of Islam, a historical event, has been thrown into the background “
“We gathered here with the brothers, talked, apologized to each other, hugged, and I hope in the future we will gather only on good occasions. Today, Islam won the belt, next in line for Khamzat, so that we all gather when Khamzat wins the belt – not for masliat, not for these conversations, but for us to gather to wash one more of our champions. I hope that this moment that happened will never happen again.”
Recall that last Saturday, Khamzat Chimaev came up to congratulate Abubakar Nurmagomedov on his victory, but he did not like how Borz slapped him on the stomach, as a result of which the conversation in raised tones provoked an exchange of blows, which the security officers in the hall managed to stop .
