Еще the octagon. No assessment is possible after he jumped from the octagon. That's for sure, [I'll scold him]. Discipline must come first,» Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov's said. Abdulmanap said he expects some kind of financial sanctions to be imposed against his son, but noted that there should not be «double standards». «I'm sure that we have exactly the same moments where McGregor jumped off the stage and threatened Jose Aldo. There it was welcomed. We repeated it, but why we should be punished for this is also unclear,» he said. He also invited Khabib's fans to meet the champion at the Anzhi Arena stadium later on Monday. «We were grateful to you before, we will continue to be grateful. You are our motivators. Therefore, we want to meet with you today at the Anzhi Arena stadium,» he said. Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor by rear submission in the fourth round at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on Sunday.
