Brave CF opens doors for Zubaira Tukhugov

Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, founder of Brave Combat Federation has made an open statement in support to Zubaira Tukhugov, who was pulled from his fight against Artem Lobov at UFC Moncton. Tukhugov was involved in the chaos that broke loose after the main event at UFC 229 between the teammates of Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Tukhugov even bragged in the social media about his involvement in the brawl, stating he “slapped as promised.”

The incident escalated further after Khabib issued a statement in which he threatened to leave the UFC if Tukhugov was axed from the promotion. KHK MMA Fight Team works close with Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, legendary coach and father of Khabib Nurmagomedov and is home to multiple athletes from Dagestan, Russia including Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev during the initial days of the fight team. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was part of the events hosted by Brave Combat Federation during multiple events cornering fighters who trained under him. The proximity had led the organisation to openly come out in support against the UFC and their decision.

“Zubair does not need to be saved, he is a champ and well known and with much respect, what I really think is that UFC needs a lot of help for that poor decision to be saved!!! Anyways BRAVE CF will always welcome a guy like u my brother @zubairatukhugov keep ur head up and let them regret it”, quoted Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad in the social media post.
