Vladimir Putin: Khabib Nurmagomedov Beat Conor McGregor 'Convincingly'

John Locher/Associated Press

Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has caught the eye of his country's president.

Karim Zidan of Bloody Elbow linked to a Russian website and noted Vladimir Putin met with Nurmagomedov following the fighter's UFC 229 victory over Conor McGregor at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Putin said Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor "convincingly" and asked the fighter's father not to punish him "too strictly" as a result, presumably referring to the bout's aftermath.

A spectator also jumped into the Octagon and threw a punch at McGregor, who swung at Nurmagomedov's teammate.
