Khabib Nurmagomedov receives hero's welcome as he lands home in Russian Federation

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

However, the card took an unexpected turn after Nurmagomedov leapt from the ring and attacked one of McGregor's coaches in the crowd, while at least two people from his camp attacked a dazed McGregor in the ring.

However, more than 50 people - mostly men and mostly from the Greater Dublin Area - were not allowed to travel to the so-called Sin City, in the western USA state of Nevada, to see the action for themselves. However, White said neither fighter was blameless, and described McGregor as a "superstar".

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.

Russian 155lb king Nurmagomedov's dominant victory cemented his place at the top of the UFC lightweight tree - brutally silencing talk of a potential dethroning by the returning McGregor.

Nick Diaz had an opinion on the fight and advice on how to defeat Nurmagomedov.

"I think that for Khabib, the most severe sanctions would be my regard,"he told Ren TV".

Rocked by Trump's sanctions, Iranian oil exports drops further
The Islamic Republic exported 1.1 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude in that seven-day period, Refinitiv Eikon data showed. Iran accounts for 10% of India's crude oil imports, making it the second largest importer of Iranian oil behind China.

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

"I don't know when things started turning into some kind of s- show?"

Nurmagomedov re-entered the octagon and confronted White for not strapping on his championship belt.

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.

It was, however, the events after the main event which got everyone talking. "But what are you going to do when a guy flies like a monkey over a cage?"

On Monday, UFC president Dana White appeared on ESPN's First Take and said McGregor is looking for a rematch with Nurmagomedov immediately. They've been saying mean things for 18 years in the UFC.
