UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov tells the media that he did not show his “best side” by jumping over the cage and attacking Conor McGregor’s team at UFC 229 and apologizes, but points to all of the antics from McGregor leading up to the fight. Khabib also says MMA is a respect sport and shouldn’t be about trash talk, while adding that he expects his dad to “smash him” when he gets home. Nurmagomedov also discusses a phone call he received from Vladimir Putin after defending his lightweight title.
