Khabib Gets Hero Welcome From Chechen Leader Ramzan Kadyrov

After his convincing victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229, and the brawl, Khabib Nurmagomedov met with controversial Chechen Republic leader, Ramzan Kadyrov.

Kadyrov has been accused of numerous human rights abuses over the years including a crackdown of the LGBT community which has allegedly involved torture and summary executions.

Nurmagomedov, a citizen of Dagestan (a neighbour republic Chechnya, part of the Russian federation) was welcomed by Kadyrov in his palace in Grozny, Chechnya’s capital.

Conor McGregor’s recent comments about Ramzan Kadyrov, has been met with hostility from the Chechen community.

McGregor stated during the press conference ahead of of his fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6th:

“The Chechen people know what I am talking about when I called his (Khabib’s) father a quivering coward. Him and Kadyrov were at a mosque together and he posted a picture of Kadyrov on his Instagram site.”

He also called Kadyrov “a crazy man.”
