UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was accused by upcoming opponent Conor McGregor of having ties to highly controversial Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov during the UFC 229 press conference in New York. Now a fighter from Kadyrov’s Akhmat MMA fight club has come forward with a threat for “Notorious.”
Taking to social media, Akhmat MMA’s Khusein Khaliev has come forward with some heated words for the Ireland native.
“Conor, you’re a master trashtalker. But this time I was offended after watching the press conference. This talk is acceptable in Ireland, America and elsewhere. But when it comes to Chechnya or the Caucasus, you need to think about what to say, and what not to say. You will have to answer for your words, inside a cage or outside of it. We never forgive for attacking the honor of our family. So I suggest you show remorse and apologize quickly, because life does not end with your fight against Khabib. Watch your tongue if you’re not looking for trouble.”
