Why did Conor McGregor get in brawl after Khabib fight? New video

The men in McGregor's corner appeared to respond with taunts, and Nurmagomedov climbed over the fence and fought with Dillon Danis, a Bellator welterweight who trains with McGregor. They are withholding Khabib's purse, they are not withholding Conor McGregor's.

UFC President Dana White said after the fight that three of Khabib's coaching team were arrested and taken to jail.

"I promised to make him answer for his words and I did". "We're regulated by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, or whatever state we're in". Two years out of the MMA didn't do Conor McGregor any favours and he looked uncomfortable from the moment the bell sounded for round one.

"Conor could get lucky and land a good punch but when Khabib gets a hold of him, it's over", he said. "What about this...?" Nurmagomedov asked during the press conference.

"First of all, I want to say sorry to the athletic commission, Nevada and sorry to Vegas", Nurmagomedov said. "I know this is not my best side".

Police eventually separated the dueling brawls, and both McGregor and Khabib were escorted out of the Las Vegas arena.

He went on to complain bitterly about McGregor's behaviour in the lead-up to the fight that exacerbated the bad blood between the two teams.

However, it proved to be too little, too late, and Nurmagomedov was once again on top in the fourth, sapping McGregor's energy with his excruciating pressure before the choke ended the fight 3:03 into the fourth round.

"He talk about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people - what about this?" he asked reporters. Nurmagomedov applied a neck crank and, after a hesitant tap, McGregor relented and tapped out to signal he was done.

White said that it would be now up to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to decide if Nurmagomedov would face further sanctions.
