  • UFC 229 ceremonial weigh-in

"First of all, I want to say sorry to Athletic Commission, sorry to Vegas", Nurmagomedov said of the brawl after the UFC 229 fight.

In co-main event action, Tony Ferguson and Anthony Pettis square off with the victor likely standing as the No. 1 contender to whichever man emerges as champion at T-Mobile Arena. "He cares about the fight". They are withholding Khabib's purse, they are not withholding Conor's. For Khabib it wasn't fight promotion, it was really personal. You know, him and Putin and. what they talking bout. He had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion. "He would have looked like a stud, instead of flying over the cage and doing the things that he did".

Fans waited nearly two years to see McGregor back in the Octagon but things did not go to plan for the Dublin fighter. After the fracas, two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier helped calm his friend and stablemate.

At the press conference, White indicated that McGregor refused to press charges, so the individuals were released.

By following his masterful victory with a reckless response to McGregor's lengthy campaign of verbal and physical aggression, Nurmagomedov showcased the best and worst sides of mixed martial arts in a 30-second span.


We have finally arrived at one of the most anticipated UFC main events in history. I told you guys.

"Unfortunately, he is going to be suspended for a period of time, which means that the belt would probably be stripped from him".

White and some UFC fighters who spoke before him were concerned that casual fans who purchased the pay-per-view may conclude this kind of behaviour comes with cage fighting.

When asked about the UFC's exploitation of the bus attack, White said he would do it all again, calling it "part of the story".
