What McGregor/Khabib Camps Are Saying After Fight-Night In Las Vegas

  • Khabib was involved in ugly scenes at the end of UFC 229

Nurmagomedov jumped out of the cage before leaping feet first at McGregor's team mate and cornerman Dillon Danis, and three of the Russian's team were arrested and later released on a black night for a sport that has struggled to win mainstream acceptance for 25 years.

McGregor simply didn't have an answer to Khabib's fine-tuned ground combat skills, being dominated and made to eat not only canvas but a serious barrage of punches and elbows.

The victorious Khabib leapt over the fence and attacked Dillion Danis after the sanctioned fight, while McGregor fought off some of Khabib's teammates having just nearly been chocked out. UFC President Dana White said he feared a melee in an arena dominated by fans of McGregor.

"Look, what happened towards the end is that Conor gave up, because the choke wasn't even under the chin; it wasn't on the neck".

McGregor was escorted out first while security kept "The Eagle" in The Octagon and boos rang out in the T-Mobile Arena. "I know this is not my best side. What about this...?" Nurmagomedov asked during the press conference.


White also said the Nevada State Athletic Commission is withholding Nurmagomedov's check pending an investigation but that McGregor was paid after the commission reviewed tape, interviewed McGregor and concluded there was no reason to withhold his check.

The post-fight meleé has gained so numerous headlines but the fourth round finish will rankle McGregor for a while yet.

"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.

"I feel that because it was a one-sided fight, Khabib didn't have chance to get the respect of McGregor".

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