But they talked about Putin.
On the night of September 21, Moscow time, a press conference was held before the fight of Irishman Conor McGregor and Russian Habib Nurmagomedov. To the opposition of the current and former UFC champions, the attention is riveted – tickets to it were bought in three minutes.
A part of the insulting statements of McGregor was devoted to Habib’s father and his relationship with Ramzan Kadyrov. As Sports.ru noted , the Irish fighter remembered about the joint photo of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov and the head of Chechnya, and also recalled the historical quarrels between Chechens and Dagestanis.
Kadyrov is a Chechen dictator, an insane person. But Habib’s father licks his ass and uploads a photo of Kadyrov with the signature “Together we are stronger”. Such fake respect due to fear.
McGregor added: “The Chechens know that if he [Habib’s father] had had the opportunity to hit that person with a knife in the back, he would have done it right away. But he did not do anything. So he’s a shivering coward. ” Habib’s father after that published another photo with Kadyrov and wrote: “The Supreme is his judge.”
However, the commentators of “Match TV” did not translate this part of the dialogue. Instead, they speculated how provocative the statements were and whether Nurmagomedov would keep his composure. The video is available on VKontakte. However, in the text on the website of the channel, the quotation is quoted verbatim .
Well, and now the continuation of the story begins, when Conor tries to provoke Habib. And play on its origin: the interaction between the Dagestani and Chechen peoples.
Then the Irish fighter recalled his joint photo with Vladimir Putin at the 2018 World Cup. The journalists asked Habib what he thought about this picture, and when he answered “nothing special”, McGregor again tried to provoke him. This part of the commentators “Match TV” translated almost verbatim.
What? Have you experienced emotion? Do not you respect your president? Oh you bitch! I have a photo with him. And you have?
The fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov will take place on October 6 in Las Vegas. The fighters have long been in conflict: they first argued in social networks, and then almost got into a fight in a parking lot in New York. Also, the Irishman does not offend the opponent’s relatives for the first time .
