UFC lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on Oct. 6. Directly afterwards, the reigning champion leaped out of the cage and attacked McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis.
A brawl quickly ensued between the two fight camps. Speaking to Russian media in a recent interview, Khabib Nurmagomedov claimed that an unidentified member of Conor McGregor’s cage side fight camp called him a “Muslim scumbag.”
“What was the trainer of McGregor shouting?” Nurmagomedov said. “That I am a Muslim scumbag. I do not want to repeat.” Dillon Danis has already come forward to claim that he made no insensitive slurs at UFC 229 at Khabib Nurmagomedov during the recent fight.
