UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov issued a lengthy statement Thursday morning defending Zubaira Tukhugov for his involvement in the UFC 229 melee and threatened to leave the promotion if his teammate was fired.
A number of fighters took to social media to express their opinions on the statement.
Double champion Daniel Cormier wasn't a fan of the incident, but supported Khabib and his teammates' loyalty nonetheless.
Former Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell found similarities between himself and Khabib.
Artem Lobov, who was supposed to fight Tukhugov, wasn't a fan Dana White's vow to fire his scheduled opponent for personal reasons.
And, of course, Nate Diaz had his own opinion on the matter.
