Abubakar is controversially “famous” for being involved in the brawl after Khabib’s fight with Conor McGregor. He jumped inside the octagon and attacked “The Notorious” with a papakha hat in his hand.
Following Abubakar’s loss at UFC Moscow, McGregor posted a series of comments on Twitter making fun of Khabib’s cousin and calling him “Nurmagotaptap” (these tweets were deleted soon afterward).
“He tapped his forehead.
If you can tap his forehead. You can punch his forehead. He quit.
1 quitter exposed.
Forever a failure.”
“A 5 second triangle hahahah”
“Console him. Then tell him he’s cut.”
