Long live King Khabib

Reigning and undisputed UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, was greeted with a warm welcome on his return back to his home in Dagestan. 

Khabib went on to make an appearance during a soccer match at a Russian Premier League soccer match, where he was presented with "The First Russian UFC Champion" cup for his dominant title defense against Conor McGregor at the UFC 229 event.

Khabib also performed a ceremonial kick at the venue to inaugurate the soccer match event. 

Will Khabib face a long-term suspension, or will he be back to compete in the Octagon earlier than expected?  Or is he going to go for the huge payday and fight Mayweather?
