Former UFC Champion On Conor McGregor - Khabib Incident, McGregor Teammate Comments

It looks like Khabib Nurmagomedov got the first of what could be many hero's welcomes in his native Dagestan.

LAS VEGAS - The Nevada State Athletic Commission will file formal complaints against Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor for their postfight actions at UFC 229 on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. Moments after standing over a beaten McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion stunned everyone when he scaled the cage wall and flew into a rage.

Rather than celebrate, Nurmagomedov jumped over the fence of the UFC octagon and charged at McGregor's cageside friend Dillon Danis.

Khabib Nurmagomedov told the media that a "smash" from his father awaited him when he returned from UFC 229 - and it turns out he might not have been kidding. Once on Sunday, with the relatively harmless message, "Looking forward to the rematch".

But at 43 years old and coming off the back of a two-year suspension, Silva appears an unlikely candidate for McGregor's next fight - and that's even before you consider the weight difference.

The build up and aftermath of the fight was dominated by McGregor and Khabib's rivalry and disgusting behaviour but on Saturday night it was an excellent and compelling fight and it's a shame it won't be remembered for that.

"Dana White says Conor McGregor has already called him asking for a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov". According to White, several members of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested but McGregor has declined to press charges. I think there is something being released on Netflix soon, a documentary based around that fight and it will have all the rounds. What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage?

Kavanagh also outlined that he felt that many onlookers in the crowd believed that, had the sparring session been scored like a fight, McGregor would have won.

"We have to see what happens. can these guys get visas and get back in the country?" Outside of the octagon, you need to exist peacefully.

"We knew some things could happen after this fight, so we had everything in place to make sure that didn't happen", White said. He got over that thing quick and was going after one of Conor's cornermen.
