Khabib Nurmagomedov is threatening to quit the UFC if they really part ways with his teammate Zubaira Tukhugov. Tukhogov is one of the fighters who attacked McGregor in the ring after the match on Saturday night but Khabib’s feelings are that if McGregor wasn’t banned after the bus incident that set this whole thing off then neither should he. Khabib went on to say in the post “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 that the company can keep his $2 million payday. The WWE should really consier picking up these UFC writers, they’re doing a great job over there.

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? 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. In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that. If you think that I’ll keep silent then you are mistaken. You canceled Zubaira’s fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor. But don’t forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video. 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. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won’t get stuck in your throat. We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end. #Brothers
