Las Vegas, October 10: Khabib Nurmagomedov joked he would have smashed Dana White's car if the UFC boss had not given him his lightweight championship belt.
The 30-year-old defended his title with a win over Conor McGregor in Las Vegas on Saturday, but the bout was marred by a post-fight brawl.
That led to White not presenting Khabib with his belt in the octagon, the UFC president worried about backlash from the crowd.
Posing with his belt and leaning on a black BMW, Khabib jokingly posted White was fortunate the championship was now back in his hands.
"@DanaWhite you're lucky that you gave my belt, or I would smash your car," he wrote.
