Khabib Nurmagomedov’s UFC future is still unclear after his actions at UFC 229.

As you’re no doubt aware by now, after beating Conor McGregor, Khabib proceeded to jump outside the cage to attack McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis.

It sparked a mass brawl outside the ring, while members of his camp traded blows with McGregor inside the ring.

Khabib’s teammate and fellow fighter, Zubaira Tukhugov, was immediately suspended by UFC for his attack on McGregor - a decision which prompted Khabib to threaten to quit the sport.

On Instagram, he wrote: “If you decide to fire him, you should know that you’ll lose me too.”

And we haven’t heard too much since.

UFC president Dana White did say earlier this week that “We’re good with Khabib.”

Quite what that means is unknown.

In the meantime, Khabib has been proudly showing off his UFC Lightweight belt that he earned against McGregor.

And this weekend, Khabib attended Anzhi Makhachkala vs. CSKA Moscow.

It wasn’t the ideal result as Khabib’s Anzhi lost 2-0 to CSKA - and the fighter was also given the honour of kicking off the match.

But while he was parading around the pitch before kick-off, Khabib showed a touch of class.


Whilst standing on a buggy with his belt, Khabib spotted some disabled fans shouting his name.

And you can hear the UFC champion telling the driver to “Stop, stop, stop,” so he can go and speak to the fans.

Take a look:

That is sheer class from Khabib - and it shows the sort of person he really is.

The Russian may have got plenty of criticism for his behaviour at UFC 229 but this really demonstrates his true colours.
