Conor McGregor planning Dublin rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov after UFC 229 chaos

Conor McGregor planning Dublin rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov after UFC 229 chaos

McGregor has been accused of crossing lines in his attempts to hype the fight, which is expected to smash the previous pay-per-view buyrate record when official figures are released. "It is going to be ugly".

Several members of his team are also reportedly facing sanctions - including fellow UFC fighter Zubaira Tukhugov.

The commission initially was going to withhold McGregor's $3 million fight purse, as well. White acknowledged Nurmagomedov's lightweight title could be stripped if his actions result in a significant suspension. "We'll see how this plays out, but I've been doing this for 18 years, and this is the biggest night ever, and I couldn't be more disappointed".

Division only grew when Donald Trump mocked the psychology professor's testimony at a fiery rally in MS earlier this week. Michael Bromwich, one of Blasey Ford's attorneys, slammed "a vicious, vile and soulless attack " on his client.

After McGregor tapped out, Khabib turned his fury towards the Irishman's training partner Dillon Danis.

Speaking to Niall McGrath about Price's comments on McGregor, he said: "In your fight career, everyone's got to do what's best for them, you know". For example, if he will be champion it will just be...money fight to make me more famous but fight with Cormier make me greater like a fighter not like a showman in this sport.

"Sorry to the Nevada athletic commission, sorry to Las Vegas". "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father". He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus. What about this?. I don't understand. I told you guys. And if that is a title shot worthy win, Volkov said at UFC 229 media day (via Submission Radio) that he'd prefer to face Cormier over Lesnar. McGregor appeared to be referring to a book written several years ago which claimed that Abdelaziz once worked as an informant for the NYPD and Federal Bureau of Investigation among US Muslims in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
