Commission Withholds Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Check, but Conor McGregor Paid

Back in April, McGregor was part of a group that attacked a bus as they sought out Nurmagomedov ahead of UFC 223.

Having made McGregor tap out, Nurmagomedov turned his attention outside the octagon and then leapt out of the cage towards the Irishman's stable-mate Dillon Danis, which ignited a melee. "You can not talk about religion, you can not talk about nation".


"My face when someone says that they didn't like my jump, but I tried so hard", Nurmagomedov posted, adding: "I hope I didn't hurt anyone's feelings with this jump". "There's gonna be an investigation by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and. there's gonna be big-money fines, and these guys are in big trouble".

The main event could have easily gone down as one of the best fights in the history of UFC if not for the chaotic post-match brawl. "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father".


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

"The 6'7" Volkov is a former Bellator champion and has been flawless so far in the Octagon with four straight wins thus putting him on a six-fight winning streak since his last loss in 2015.


White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt". After the fracas, two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier helped calm his friend and stablemate. He looked great doing it. "But what are you going to do when a guy flies like a monkey over a cage?" "It should have been a very different night for him". People have been saying mean things to each other for 18 years here in the UFC.
