Khabib Nurmagomedov gets a great reaction from people in his home in the Republic of Dagestan once returning from his latest fight. Although Khabib is in some hot water back in the United States, which he’ll have to deal with soon, it didn’t matter to his fans in his hometown.

As seen in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 229 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Nurmagomedov scored his biggest win to date. He beat former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion McGregor by fourth-round neck crank.
