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

Dana White Reveals Ron Chenoy for USA TODAY Sports

The Nevada Athletic Commission told Dana White that they were withholding his pay until further review of the post-fight incident.

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.

Nurmagomedov went after a jiu-jitsu training member in McGregor's camp, Dillon Danis, a Bellator MMA fighter who mouthed something after the fight, which sent the champion into a rage. "You know, you just won a great fight, you fought brilliantly, you're about to get the belt on and people are going to respect the fact that you fought well and you won the fight".

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.

"But I don't understand how people can talk about how I jump on the cage".

By following his masterful victory with a reckless response to McGregor's lengthy campaign of verbal and physical aggression, Nurmagomedov showcased the best and worst sides of mixed martial arts in a 30-second span.

Humble in defeat, McGregor immediately took to Twitter to declare his desire for a rematch, putting pressure on Nurmagomedov to accept.

"He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father". While that was taking place, several of Nurmagomedov's teammates entered the cage to attack McGregor.

The New York Post also reported that apparent Russian and Irish fans got into a fight. "He would have looked like a stud, instead of flying over the cage and doing the things that he did. This is the first time this happened", White said.
