After the win, he held up the flag of Georgia. The Georgian fighter dedicated his win to Georgian heroes who died during the war in 2008. In August, 2008 Russia invaded Georgia - 850 people were killed and 192,000 were displaced from their homes. They still cannot return to their villages. What is more, Russia continues a creeping encroachment on Georgian territory.
