Nurmagomedov's father forgives McGregor, invites him to Dagestan
The father of Russian fighter and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, said he forgives Ireland’s Conor McGregor for his insults and invites him to Dagestan, which will host the world sambo championships on December 15.
"I once again invite our close friend Oleg Nikolaevich Taktarov and McGregor as an honored guest for the tournament. I said that I forgive him all the insults. We should be merciful," Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said on Facebook.
Earlier, McGregor had insulted Khabib Nurmagomedov and his father and coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov at news conferences several times before the fight, TASS recalls.
UFC Champion Nurmagomedov defeated Ireland’s Conor McGregor during the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 229 tournament in Las Vegas on October 6, defending his lightweight title.
