With this win, Khabib extended his winning record to 28-0 and after the fight during the post-fight interview, he was all class and swapped t-shirts with Dustin Poirier. He explained the reason behind this to John Anik.

Why I wear this t-shirt? Because I know Dustin do a lot of charity stuff. Guys make sure, I’m going to sell this t-shirt. All of this money I’m going to send to Dustin Poirier.” said Khabib Nurmagomedov. “This is what I want, you know. Why we have so much respect between us before the fight? Then my last fight, with this bullsh*t guy, I have a lot of crazy stuff. But, I want to forget everything. We show really what is this MMA. MMA number one thing is respect. When you come to gym, first thing your coach and everybody trains you, you have to respect him, you to respect teammates, coaches and you to keep clean your gym. Everything is about respect. MMA is not about trash talk. You know this is what we show. Dustin Poirier is great.” (H/T – BJPenn.com)
