It’s fair to say Khabib Nurmagomedov is savouring his victory against Conor McGregor, enjoying reliving the glory of what many have hailed the biggest fight in UFC history.

The Russian mixed martial artist even invited friends over to rewatch the match, tucking into pizzas and drinks as his UFC 229 entrance plays out on a TV screen.

Kicking back on the sofa with a satisfied smile on his face, Nurmagomedov looks quite relaxed in the footage, which shows him basking in the glow of his recent win.

Footage of the lightweight champion’s screening was captured by friends who were present, and has since been shared widely on social media; eliciting a wide range of responses.

One person tweeted:

@TheNotoriousMMA should grab a glass of his whiskey and watch how he took a royal ass whooping. That was a shame on his part. He didn’t even go 5 rounds. I want my money back.

Another said:

t’s a wonder they didn’t hurt themselves from laughing at how easy it was.

However, others were not happy about Nurmagomedov’s attitude, considering the way he reacted following the fight.

One person said:

Hope he gets stripped and a big fine.

Another remarked:

I’ve heard of a sore loser, but I’ve never heard of a sore winner. Hope they strip his belt!!

The aftermath of the dramatic Las Vegas fight turned nasty, with Nurmagomedov jumping out of the Octagon to attack McGregor’s teammate while one of his own teammates rushed in to attack McGregor.

Speaking at a post-match press conference, Nurmagomedov apologised for his behaviour, saying:

I want to say sorry to the athletic commission, sorry to Vegas. I know this is not my best side,” he explained.

I don’t understand how people can say I jumped on the cage. He talked about my religion, my family, he came to Brooklyn and could have killed people on the bus.

Why are we talking about me climbing on the cage? My father taught me to be respectful. Today, he tapped, the belt is here, undisputed, undefeated UFC Lightweight Champion. This is a respectful sport, not a trash-talking sport.
