Usman Nurmagomedov successfully defended his lightweight title at the recently finished Bellator 300 event by defeating Brent Primus through unanimous decision. The fight took place between the two competitors.
Fight fans were taken aback by the fact that Russin did not make an effort to shake hands with any of the other competitors at the event. Following the conclusion of the event’s main bout, the post-fight ceremony saw Nurmagomedov join fellow champions Cris Cyborg and Liz Carmouche inside the octagon.
Carmouche attempted to greet him with a handshake; however, the Dagestani gentleman declined to take part in the gesture.
Cyborg can be seen forcing the flyweight queen to put her hand down in video footage that was posted on X by @OmerOsman200. This occurred after Nurmagomedov refused to shake the ‘Girl-Rilla’s’ hand.
In the post, the X user makes the insinuation that the 25-year-old individual withheld the handshake on account of religious beliefs.

Usman Nurmagomedov names Islam Makhachev as the best lightweight in the world
In his career as a mixed martial artist, Usman Nurmagoedov, the reigning lightweight champion of Bellator, has been defeated by no one. On the other hand, the Russian does not consider himself to be the finest lightweight anywhere in the world.
In a recent interview with Schmo, Khabib Nurmagomedov said that his training partner Islam Makhachev, who is also the current UFC lightweight champion, is the best 155-pounder in the world:
“It’s Islam Makhachev brother, he is the best in the world right now… ” “It’s Islam Makhachev brother… ” Yes, he is superior to me in every way… “Of course, we can make our history, and we can change everything, because you never stop maturing, but right now, in the lightweight division, he is the best.”
