Dagestan explodes with delight after Khabib defeats McGregor at

Irene MckinneyOct 09, 2018

UFC 229 was marred by an ugly brawl at the conclusion of its main event.

"The governor [Brian Sandoval] was here. Now he has to go before the Nevada commission".

"Some people love that. but for me, it's a bad night".

Many believe that McGregor had crossed the line from trash talking to bigotry before the fight with Nurmagomedov. Tukhugov was a participant in Saturday night's fracas.

Ferguson called out both McGregor and Nurmagomedov after his win against Pettis, and could also be a potential next opponent for McGregor.

The Irish striker struggled with Nurmagomedov's takedown ability in the opening rounds, was dropped by a thudding right hand in the second round, and was eventually submitted when Nurmagomedov locked in a tight neck crank in the fourth round. "Good knock", he said on Twitter yesterday. "He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father", he said in the post-fight conference, without answering any questions before leaving. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".

But for all the things Nurmagomedov said McGregor shouldn't have done, no fighter can jump out of the octagon to attack someone without harsh repercussions. While McGregor was paid a base salary of $3 million for the fight, his total haul is expected to be anywhere from $50 million to $100 million, based on estimates from McGregor himself and White.

"And I mean Khabib".

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. Even if you were the biggest Conor fan ever, you would at least have to respect him. The only one getting hurt in this thing now is Khabib. He looked great doing it. White said he was concerned if he did, the pro-McGregor crowd would've showered the octagon and fans below with debris.

Beginning with a dolly he threw at a bus Nurmagomedov was in that led to criminal charges against McGregor back in April, Saturday's fight got very personal, very quickly. "But what are you going to do when a guy flies like a monkey over a cage?" Unfortunately, when you allow more and more B.S. during weigh ins and outside of fights; You only slap fighters on the wrist for acting like barbarians and then offer them bigger contracts and reward them for this behavior. I've been working hard for 18 years to build this sport.

That apparently didn't happen, although White was pleased with the outcome.
