UFC 229: Khabib's manager points finger at McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov left punches Conor Mc Gregor during their fight on Sunday

Most of the talk coming out of the UFC 229 event over the weekend focused on the brawl that ensued after the main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, where the man from Dagestan put on a clinical performance, taking down his Irish opponent at will before submitting him with a hold that was half neck crank, half rear-naked choke. 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.

Wiz Khalifa says punishing Khabib Nurmagomedov for attacking Conor McGregor's jiu-jitsu coach would be the height of hypocrisy - it's just fighters being fighters. "Because we withheld one purse, we will have to move expeditiously to a complaint and hearing. Temporary suspensions will be out shortly, and we're shooting for a final hearing date in November".

It remains to seen whether a rematch between the pair can be agreed but UFC fans will take joy in knowing that McGregor has no intentions of stepping away from the sport again.

Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor via submission in the fourth round of UFC 229 before the Russian fighter climbed out of the ring and attacked a member of McGregor's team on live television.

On Monday, UFC president Dana White appeared on ESPN's First Take and said McGregor is looking for a rematch with Nurmagomedov immediately. "There are a lot of charges that can be brought against a spectator who came over the barricade, through the commission section and into the Octagon to strike a fighter three times".

"We're taking a really hard look at that gentleman". I mean Khabib. We'll see how this thing plays out. "That was a serious action and it deserves a serious outcome". He is facing a possible fine and suspension.

By stopping the update's automatic distribution, Microsoft can hopefully mitigate the effects of the bug. Early adopters who downloaded and installed it manually may have been affected.

White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt".

I think there's something being released on Netflix soon, a documentary based around that fight, and it will have all the rounds.

Having made McGregor tap out, Nurmagomedov turned his attention outside the octagon, leaping out of the cage toward the McGregor's stablemate Dillon Danis and igniting a melee.

"This is a serious issue, this is not a light issue", Marnell said.

Happy, indeed, especially after what took place after the fight.
