“Some say I reacted poorly, but I mean the following: you can’t confine an Eagle to a cage, I showed it to him (to Conor McGregor) and his team,” he said to the fans’ joy.
The presentation of the belt continued with a traditional dance and fireworks in a stadium that presented an important security device.
“Everybody supports Khabib with a lot of emotion, even grandparents have followed the fight,” said Magomed Magomedov, an amateur who came to applaud the Champion.
