Khabib Nurmagomedov comments on Masvidal-Covington incident!

The incident in which Jorge Masvidal attacked Colby Covington at a bar in Miami provoked numerous reactions. Covington is known as the ‘dirty guy’ who used various provocations as a means to victory before the match with Masvidal.

He succeeded, but Masvidal did not forget all the 'hard' words Khabib Nurmagomedov was one of those whose reaction was awaited “If you are stronger than someone inside the octagon, it does not mean you can insult his children.

No one has the right to insult someone’s family,” Khabib said, as quoted by talksport “Once you have gone down that path, then be ready to back up your words. You were attacked by professional fighter, the same as you are, your own size, and you go press charges against him to the police? Khabib considers it the best move by UFC fighters to reject fighting with Covington “I think all welterweights should refuse to fight Colby, just don’t accept fights with him, let him sit without a fight, it will probably significantly affect him and all fighters who even think of insulting families, who is provoking the fighters to look for someone in restaurants to deal with him”.

Daniel Cormier reaction

Daniel Cormier also reacted. “Colby Covington is not a street guy,” Cormier said. “Like, I will tell you today, Colby Covington is not a street guy. Colby Covington is a guy that likes to talk and fight.

“The shtick may have crossed the line and now it’s gotten him into a situation that he is not really equipped for. That is why he didn’t have anybody in place with him to make sure that it didn’t cross a line.

“But because I know who I am, I always made sure somebody was in that place with me to make sure that I didn’t cross the line, to ensure my safety and protect everything that I was building”.
