Dana White Unveils Vladimir Putin’s Gifts To Khabib Nurmagomedov Post Conor McGregor Victory

5 months ago By Jhon Woug

The Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov rivalry has been entertaining the fans, with their fight at UFC 229 in 2018 not simply about who would emerge as the winner inside the octagon. It too served as a clash of personalities, an early indication of which dominated the build-up and aftermath of the fight.

Amid the spreading dust and Khabib’s victory over McGregor by a fourth-round submission, the aftermath of the fight was almost immediately shaped. Khabib’s victory did not garner the most headlines; however, it was what happened both inside and outside the octagon.

The aftermath of the fight raised doubts about how Khabib’s victory was claimed as a result of the violent clash that emerged among the two competing teams. The disorder created situations of confusion in which the administration and the security men had to use their powers and restore order. President of UFC Dana White wasn’t taking any chances in bringing down this disturbing episode, instead blaming Khabib’s side for such unprofessional behaviour.

While the world was struck with disarray, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s life relayed a positive light. Dana White revealed after the fight that there had been a surprising twist to the scenario—a big gift from the president himself, and no less than Russian President Vladimir Putin, to Khabib.

White wrote that Putin made a grand one by presenting Khabib and his father with Russian property valued at around $20 million, making him the first top-level fighter to emerge after his victory. With a grateful deed, it proves the significance of Khabib’s win, both on a personal and geopolitical level.

And Putin’s benevolence didn’t end there. Khabib secured his place as a celebrated character in MMA as well as in Islamic nations after getting praised by Islamic nations for overall knocking out McGregor and being treated as a champion in Muslim countries. There were plenty of ways to shine more, from the array of automobiles to cash to exercise centres at his disposal, further elevating him amongst fans.

Even his unblemished reign of glory, culminating in a record of 29 wins and 0 losses as the UFC’s undefeated lightweight champion, has not tainted his fame.

Initially, he defeated Kamal Shalorus and Gleison Tibau, and through this, he gradually gained his respect. The moment when he fought Michael Johnson and Edson Barboza was like the peak. In turn, his rise led to a fight at UFC 229, where the world watched an epic battle between him and Conor McGregor that will be recalled for a long time as one of the important fights in MMA.

McGregor, the British fighter, was set against the Russian Khabib; it all portrayed the confrontation between the two distinct cultures and people. Irishman McGregor was the first to display his flamboyance and showmanship. At the same time, a Dagestani grappler who was identified as having determination looked quite stoic.

Two combatants’ versus passion boosted rivalry beyond the squared circle, and audience members embraced the fights on a global scale.

Unlike the previous victory, Khabib’s latest triumph over McGregor was more than just the title of “another win.” It turned out to be a foreshadowing of his stellar fighter status as well as his unquenchable fire and unyielding determination, reaffirming his supremacy among the world’s top fighters and securing his legendary standing in contemporary mixed martial arts.

Vladimir Putin paid attention to his image as a cultural icon and athlete by accentuating it as the President of his home country, Russia. Khabib has been recognised as the best fighter ever due to the fact that $20 million worth of property and other resources handed to him were presented as proof.

Though he is out of the professional arena, Khabib’s lasting legacy still draws attention. The influence he has left extends well beyond just his era and inspires new generations of his competitors as he himself propels the sport to amazing heights.

During the interview with Dana White, the fact that Vladimir Putin showered Khabib Nurmagomedov with generosity became the main point of discussion. This clearly shows how much athletes’ influence can stretch across the globe. Nevertheless, MMA (the former UFC lightweight champion) won the sport that is often established by exhausting physical feats; his triumph is, however, a lot more than merely athletic achievements and will stand forever in MMA history.
