Habib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, commented on his son’s skirmish with American Nate Diaz at UFC 239 in Las Vegas.
“This guy wants to get out of turn what he deserves. How much we asked him and Anthony Pettis to fight, it was very difficult to negotiate with them, but the UFC can give this guy the opportunity, ”wrote Abdulmanap in Instagram.
The conflict between the Russian and the American arose after Diaz approached the Nurmagomedov team and began to say something and show fingers.
Diaz has not fought since 2016 and should return to Octagon in August in a fight against Anthony Pettis.
Habib and Diaz were reassured by the guards. Fighters wanted to wave during UFC 239
