As Porrier told MMA Junkie, Nurmagomedov transferred $ 100 thousand.

“It's great because it helps a lot of people. I really appreciate his help and am very grateful, ”Porie said.

On the night of September 7-8, at the UFC 242 tournament in Abu Dhabi, Nurmagomedov defeated Porrier with a strangulation in the third round and defended his UFC lightweight champion title for the second time in his career.

After the fight, the athletes exchanged t-shirts, and then the Russian promised to sell the T-shirt and transfer the money received to the American charity fund.
