During the post-fight press conference Khabib said sorry for his actions and started the press conference by saying
“What’s up guys. I want to say sorry to the Nevada Athletic Commission, sorry to Vegas.”
“I know this is not my best side, I’m a human being,” said Khabib defending his actions.”
Khabib also said, “They call him a two-time champion, two-weight world champion but he taps,” Nurmagomedov said.
“This is a respect sport, not a trash talk sport. Guys, you cannot talk about religion. This stuff is important.”
He also said, “I know my father is going to smash me when I go home.”
He told the press that he received a call from Russian President Vladimir Putin after his victory.
Khabib concluded the conference by saying“Putin just called me and told me he’s very proud of me, he said congratulations. I told you guys, everything I am going to change 6 October. Alhamdulillah. Thank you so much.”
