Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov is a Russian professional mixed martial artist of Avar ethnicity. Nurmagomedov is a two-time Combat Sambo World Champion and the reigning undisputed UFC Lightweight Champion. He is undefeated in professional MMA, with 27 wins, holding the record for the longest undefeated streak in professional MMA history.
He has been in the news off late when he forced Conor McGregor in a submission and beat the fighter all hands down. But what followed the win was a ruckus. After beating McGregor – Nurmagomedov hurled himself over the top of the cage, across an officials’ table and on to the floor, all in order to exchange punches with Dillion Danis, the Irishman’s jiu-jitsu coach.
It was a chaos all around after that. And in the aftermath, three Nurmagomedov team members were detained, but McGregor declined to press charges and the trio was released.
