Share

The 30-year-old from Dagestan had mauled former two-weight champion McGregor before the Irishman tapped out to a rear naked choke hold in the fourth round, but that was quickly forgotten in the following melee.

Meanwhile, McGregor's father Tony has been similarly focusing on the future after witnessing his son's defeat in Las Vegas last night.

The victorious Khabib leapt over the fence and attacked Dillion Danis after the sanctioned fight, while McGregor fought off some of Khabib's teammates having just nearly been chocked out.

Nurmagomedov then pointed at members of McGregor's corner, threw his mouthpiece in their direction and started yelling at them.

Apparent fans of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor got into a confrontation with police on October 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

White also said the Nevada State Athletic Commission is withholding Nurmagomedov's check pending an investigation but that McGregor was paid after the commission reviewed tape, interviewed McGregor and concluded there was no reason to withhold his check.

Will we see a rematch between the two fighters is anyone's guess, but giving the open hatred shown between the two fighters and fight UFC fan's undoubtedly wanting to see if McGregor can make a comeback.

However, with 3 members from Khabib's camp under arrest for assault, the Nevada fighting commission investigating the post-match shenanigans to see whether Khabib is fined or worse denied his title all remain to be seen.

After a lengthy delay, Nurmagomedov eventually addressed a media conference at the T-Mobile Arena. The Nevada State Athletic Commission is going to go after him, I'm sure, pretty hard. "I know this is not my best side".

Nurmagomedov and McGregor both left the ring before the championship belt could be put around Nurmagomedov's waist.

"Khabib said "I'm ready for this", but I said the other 20,000 people in here aren't ready for this". Three of Nurmagedov's staff were arrested but then released after Conor said he did not want to press charges. While sources have stated that McGregor's cornerman incited Khabib's actions, the fighter faces major punishment from the UFC.
