Khabib’s Cousin, Usman Nurmagomedov Arrested For Hit & Run On Cop – MMA Root

Usman Nurmagomedov found himself in hot water in Moscow.

Usman, a cousin of former UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, fights under the Bellator banner, where he is the undefeated 14-0 lightweight contender. Of course, having that last name has garnered serious attention in every fight, and his last fight was a rear-naked choke victory over Patrick Pietila at Bellator 269 last month.

However, it looks like it will be difficult for him to compete again in the near future following the incident in Moscow. According to a police statement received by the Russian newspaper VT and translated by The Sun, Nurmagomedov was detained by law enforcement authorities in connection with a situation where he and another person were involved in a clash with a police officer at the airport.

“The Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for Kaspiysk is looking for Kamal Khabibovich Idrisov, 10/29/1998, and Osman Magomednabievich Nurmagomedov, 04/17/1998, who hit a police officer at the airport checkpoint in a Toyota Camry. , – the message says.

“The aforementioned persons flew to Sheremetyevo airport,” a RIA Novosti source cited police orientation data. They are suspected of having shot down a police officer at a checkpoint at the airport. The townspeople were taken to the duty station of the linear unit. The issue of detention and placement in a temporary detention facility is being resolved. “

While the initial statement said the authorities were still looking for Usman Nurmagomedov and Kamal Idrisov, it appears that the issue has been resolved. The lightweight prospect posted to his Instagram Stories shortly after news of the situation emerged, apparently stating that everything was fine.

“I don’t know who writes what,” wrote Nurmagomedov (translated via Google). “Please calm down already”

At the time of this writing, this is really all that is known from the situation with Usman Nurmagomedov. No announcements have been received from Bellator in this regard.
