Nurmagomedov leapt out of the Octagon to attack members of McGregor's team, sparking a mass brawl inside and outside of the cage.

The NSAC withheld Nurmagomedov's $2 million purse on Saturday night but allowed McGregor to receive his $3 million payment.

Dana White says that there could be stiff penalties for the brawl that broke out after the main event of UFC 229. We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next.

Nurmagomedov defended his actions on Saturday night by referring back to how McGregor "almost killed a couple of people". I warned him. For me, the most important thing is discipline.

The individual in the red t-shirt who blindsided McGregor with a sucker-punch after entering the Octagon is facing severe legal repercussions for the assault.

Nurmagomedov's teammate at American Kickboxing Academy, Luke Rockhold, said on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday that if the UFC wants Nurmagomedov to fight a rematch, the promotion will have to pay him more than McGregor, who is by far the highest-paid fighter in MMA.

Based on what happened after the fight, a rematch between these two fighters would likely do huge PPV numbers. There were three arrests, UFC president Dana White said, yet no formal charges were made because McGregor decided against pursuing the case.

Former middleweight king GSP, 37, would need to cut a huge amount of weight to make a potential fight at 155lbs, but hasn't ruled out the idea completely, indicating earlier this summer he could return to face the victor of UFC 229 - which is now clear. He also said the UFC took extra precautions to prevent this type of situation, but it was unavoidable.

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

And McGregor responded: "I love it champ!" What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage?

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. "I know my father is going to smash me when I go home".

Khabib puts on the rear choke hold that won him the fight. And he's going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six months suspension.
