Dagestan explodes with delight after Khabib defeats McGregor at

Nurmagomedov leapt out of the Octagon to attack members of McGregor's team, sparking a mass brawl inside and outside of the cage.

Nurmagomedov's $2-million ($A2.8 million) purse has been withheld, and he could face a hefty fine along with a lengthy suspension.

Meanwhile, McGregor was involved in a separate skirmish with others who had jumped into the octagon before the situations eventually were diffused as the fighters were escorted from T-Mobile Arena. Such a fight would be likely to generate huge revenues, despite the distaste generated by Saturday's events, and White said he had already heard from McGregor. "We'll see how things play out".

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. White told "First Take" on Monday that McGregor has also brought it up to him directly.

Conor McGregor may have been the loudest in the weeks and days leading up to his match-up against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, but he had absolutely nothing to show when it came time to fight. According to White, several members of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested but McGregor has declined to press charges.

The central bank retained the repo rate unchanged at 6.50 per cent, while the reverse repo rate also stayed at 6.25 per cent. The question was only of timing, said Radhika Rao, an economist at DBS in Singapore.

"You do whatever you want in the Octagon", Nurmagomedov Sr.

After the fight Khabib apologised to the athletic commission for his actions but not to McGregor or Danis and could still be in trouble with the UFC.

The 30-year-old has completed just one fight in a recent six-fight deal with the UFC, and he has already expressed a desire to contest a rematch with Nurmagomedov. He also said the UFC took extra precautions to prevent this type of situation, but it was unavoidable. "We had two [security] meetings tonight, one of them two fights before the main event". What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage?

"I was like 'didn't all the commissioners get the memo like the National Football League did that you can't show the violent hits, the unethical and illegal things and still use it in promotion". "I promised to make him answer for his words and I did". "We'll see. I don't know".
