Conor McGregor's next fight most likely to be rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov

  • Khabib Nurmagomedov looks on stern-faced at a pre-fight press conference before taking on Conor McGregor

The words "We lost the match but won the battle", may refer to the way in which Khabib tarnished his reputation by jumping into the crowd after the fight and attacking a member of Conor's team, Dillon Danis.

Still you've got to worry for Khabib, who knows what punishment his dad will give him - he might take away internet privileges or his Xbox. It happened so fast. However, that would deprive him of an October 27 fight between Nurmagomedov's teammate Zubaira Tukhugov and Artem Lobov, one of McGregor's best friends. "The police did what they could do and the security did a great job of containing it", UFC president Dana White said in a post-fight media conference.

He's also going to be punished by his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who was not present in Las Vegas after being denied a visa. McGregor declined to press charges. "They'll never fight here". When you have such an unbelievable event that we've worked hard to build over the last several months and it goes ideal, I mean literally it was too eerie.


Khabib took McGregor down to the ground and unleashed a flurry of punches and ultimately made him tap out in the fourth round.

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. I'm a human being.

"This is a respectful sport, not a trash-talking sport", said the Russian fighter. I'm a human being, but I don't understand how people can talk about jumping on the cage when he talks about my religion, he talks about my country, he talks about my father and he comes to Brooklyn and he broke the bus and nearly killed a couple of people. I don't understand. You cannot talk about religion, you cannot talk about nations, you cannot talk about this stuff. Guys, you can not talk about this stuff and, for me, this is very important.
