Khabib Nurmagomedov apologized for attacking Conor McGregor's coach after pounding the crap out of Conor to retain his title, admitting it was revenge for the Irishman's smack talk against him.
Khabib professed remorse to reporters, but also tried justifying his anger. He made it clear ... he reached a boiling point because Conor attacked him, his religion, his country and his father. He also referenced Conor's bus attack back in April, which resulted in criminal charges and injured 3 fighters. Khabib said he's only human, and he snapped.
For his part, Dana White was furious at Khabib and crew for the 2 attacks, saying they are all in "big trouble." He says Khabib's looking at a suspension and even raises the possibility of visa issues for the Russians.
The champ did not explain why Dillon Danis -- Conor's jiu-jitsu coach -- was Khabib's target.
