In Russia, the rights to broadcast belong to “Match TV”, therefore the press conference was shown live on the TV channel “Match! Fighter”. Commentators told the audience about the confrontation and translated the main statements of the fighters.

Part of McGregor’s insulting remarks was devoted to Habib’s father and his relationship with Ramzan Kadyrov. As noted by, the Irish fighter recalled a joint photo of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov and the head of Chechnya, and also recalled the historical feuds between Chechens and Dagestanis.

Kadyrov is a Chechen dictator, a crazy person. But Habib’s father licks his ass and puts 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 the opportunity to stab this man in the back, he would have done it right away. But he did nothing. Therefore he is a trembling coward. ” After this, Habib’s father published another photo with Kadyrov and wrote: “The Most High Judge to him”.

However, the commentators of “Match TV” did not begin to translate this part of the dialogue. Instead, they speculated on how provocative the statements were and whether Nurmagomedov would keep his cool. Video of the broadcast is available in “VKontakte”. At the same time, the text on the website of the channel is quoted literally .

Well, now the continuation of the story begins, when Conor tries to provoke Habib. And play on its origin: the interaction between the Dagestan and Chechen peoples.

Then the Irish fighter recalled his joint photo with Vladimir Putin at the 2018 World Cup. Journalists asked Habib what he thought of this picture, and when he answered “Nothing special,” MacGregor again tried to provoke him. This part of the commentators “Match TV” translated almost verbatim.

What? Have you experienced emotions? You do not respect your president? Oh, you bitch! I have a photo with him. And you have?
