Michael Bisping: McGregor 'Gave Up' Once Nurmagomedov Applied The Choke Hold

He then turned back to the anger that fuelled his preparation for the fight and made his resounding victory a footnote by leaping out of the octagon and attacking a member of McGregor's team.

UFC chief Dana White confirmed later that three of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested and taken to jail but were released later because McGregor refused to press charges.

The video, posted on Twitter, shows what appears to be Irish and Russian fans clashing. "Look, what happened towards the end is that Conor gave up, because the choke wasn't even under the chin; it wasn't on the neck", Bisping said.

Nurmagomedov forced Conor McGregor to tap in the fourth round inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Shortly after Khabib incited his brawl, two men presumably involved with Khabib entered the Octagon and attacked McGregor, sparking a second melee. Do you think we'll see him fight Khabib Nurmagomedov again in the future?

Dana White was asked whether he would be interested in promoting a rematch between Nurmagomedov and McGregor, considering the risks that can not be ignored, but he remained non-committal on running it back.

As of Sunday night, the Nevada State Athletic Commission had yet to pay Nurmagomedov and the undefeated Dagestani could now face a lengthy suspension, a hefty fine and the potential loss of his 155lbs belt. "They'll never fight here".

"This is not my best side.my father is going to smash me when I get home", Nurmagomedov said.

"So why do people still talk about me jumping over the cage?" In Nurmagomedov's apology for triggering the postfight melee, he said of McGregor, "He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people". "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality". "But what are you going to do when a guy flies like a monkey over a cage?"
