Newly crowned UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has been making headlines as of late. While the fighter recently opened up some beef with Conor Mcgregor, there is another UFC superstar that “The Eagle” first crossed paths with.
Khabib Nurmagomedov was sitting in a bus filled with other fighters within the loading dock of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, April 5, when a fracas broke out. UFC megastar Conor McGregor and a large group of individuals allegedly attacked the vehicle, injuring multiple fighters within.
The incident was allegedly lead by Conor McGregor as a retaliation for Khabib Nurmagomedov’s confrontation with SBG Ireland teammate Artem Lobov from days earlier. Still, Nurmagomedov had a physical confrontation with another UFC star long before April 5.
In the video above, Khabib Nurmagomedov can be seen having a physical altercation with UFC megastar Nate Diaz within a hotel room. The fighter first had an incident with the Diaz brothers at WSOF 22. However, the fighter would later cross paths with Nate Diaz in a hotel lobby, leading to a massive brawl.
