  • Khabib Nurmagomedov looks on stern-faced at a pre-fight press conference before taking on Conor McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager suggested Sunday in a social media post that Conor McGregor's pre-fight insults were behind the Russian's decision to climb out of the Octagon and instigate a mass brawl after UFC 229 on Saturday in Las Vegas.

But when Nurmagomedov promptly hurdled over the cage and fought with McGregor's taunting cornermen while his own teammates ambushed McGregor in the octagon, the Russian champion and his friends might have seriously damaged careers that were just about to take off.

White told reporters for ESPN that the Nevada State Atheltic Commission is now holding both McGregor's and Nurmagomedov's fight checks until further notice.

McGregor tapped out when Nurmagomedov locked in a tight neck crank in the fourth round of their highly-anticipated UFC 229 lightweight championship fight. We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next.

Nurmagomedov publicly apologized to the commission Saturday.


"The pay-per-view numbers are starting to roll in, so I'm in a much better mood than I was on Saturday", White told TMZ Sports on Monday.

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

The 30-year-old has completed just one fight in a recent six-fight deal with the UFC, and he has already expressed a desire to contest a rematch with Nurmagomedov. Those two have been lined up three different times to fight and it hasn't happened.

After the melee, UFC president Dana White said the three men who attacked McGregor had been arrested, but Las Vegas police reported no arrests stemming from the incident, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

While Khabib vs McGregor II would definitely do numbers, there are other fighters who are looking for a title shot as well. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality". What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage? "We have held 100 percent of one of the fighter's money, so the goal is to get the complaints out in the next 24 to 48 hours". "I know my father's gonna smash me when I go home", he said at the post-fight press conference.
