Khabib's manager suggests McGregor barbs led to post-fight skirmish

Khabib's manager suggests McGregor barbs led to post-fight skirmish

Conor McGregor's fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov descended into complete chaos at UFC 229.

De La Hoya's account seemed to blame McGregor fans for the incident, which was caused when Khabib targetted Dillon Danis in the crowd. "Guys, you can not talk about this stuff and, for me, this is very important".

Danis is now signed to Bellator MMA but he wants to fight dos Anjos who has a career 17-8 record in the UFC.

But because Nurmagomedov went over the cage after his win and went after one of McGregor's teammates, the Nevada State Athletic Commission reportedly still was withholding the champion's paycheck.

Dana White says that there could be stiff penalties for the brawl that broke out after the main event of UFC 229.

Meanwhile, McGregor was involved in a separate skirmish with others who had jumped into the octagon before the situations were eventually diffused as the fighters were escorted from the arena.

"He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father. He's going to have to master the stand-up game and everything else, but what I've found over the years is that when you take a guy like this, who has competed all over the world in big events, they're calm and relaxed and they'll develop if you push them along and nurture them the right way". For Khabib it wasn't fight promotion, it was really personal.

White sought adequate security for the event ever since McGregor, who launched the first attack back in April, on a bus carrying Nurmagomedov to a UFC event in Brooklyn, was arrested and spent a night in jail. Nurmagomedov said after apologising to the Nevada commission during a brief post-fight statement to reporters, his title belt displayed on the dais before him.
