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

Dana White Reveals

Dana White Reveals

Considering the history between the two fighters, it was surprising to see the buildup to the fight lacking any major controversy.

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

Nurmagomedov (27-0), after defeating McGregor in the fourth round by rear-naked chokehold in a dominant exhibition of his wrestling skill, was hardly contrite in a brief news-conference appearance.

For McGregor, who recently signed a six-fight deal with the UFC, the nature of his defeat could mean he needs to set his sights lower before attempting to reassert his authority on the promotion. They took a photo together, McGregor called him "one of the greatest leaders of our time", and unsurprisingly, McGregor attempted to use that to throw shade at Nurmagomedov in the lead-up to the fight.

A brawl ensued on the outside while a number of Khabib's camp entered the octagon and blindsided McGregor with a flurry of shots before security eventually intervened.

The future for both fighters appears uncertain, with Nurmagomedov likely to face sanctions from the Nevada state authorities for his role in the brawl, and potentially being stripped of the belt.

The fight was over when a horrific brawl broke out while Conor was still standing in the Octagon. I promised to make him answer for his words and I did, ' the MMA fighter is reported to have said.

"What about he talked about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father?" Worry about this. Worry about this sh*t. Why do people talk about me jumping over the cage?

"This is respect sport". When you have such an awesome event that we've worked hard to build over the last several months and it goes flawless, I mean literally it was too eerie.

The riot began when four members of Khabib's team jumped into the cage and reportedly began to attack Conor.

"I told you guys, not only him, his whole team, they're tap machine".
