Khabib Nurmagomedov's father forgives McGregor, but not his son
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father and trainer of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, said that he has forgiven Irish MMA superstar Conor McGregor for his scathing pre-fight trash talk.
McGregor unleashed a number of coarse and close-to-the-knuckle verbal volleys at Khabib during the media tours for the fight, attacking Khabib's culture, family and entourage, RT recalls.
"I forgive Conor McGregor, it's all in the past. You must make an analysis of everything that went on and take lessons on board," Abdulmanap wrote underneath a picture of Khabib and Conor facing off at their ceremonial weigh-in.
The 55-year-old continued: "I spoke with the elders and the wise men of our community, and we decided to move to new heights. I hope that there is a benefit in this, Inshallah (God willing)."
