Conor McGregor planning Dublin rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov after UFC 229 chaos

The fight was over when a horrific brawl broke out while Conor was still standing in the Octagon.

Nurmagomedov jumped into the crowd and brawled with Dillon Danis, one of McGregor's coaches.

"This is not my best side.my father is going to smash me when I get home", Nurmagomedov said. "I'm a human, he talked about my religion, my country, my father, he nearly killed a couple of people, what about this s***?"

"I don't understand how people can talk about how I jump on the cage", Nurmagomedov added. You can not talk about religion or nations. He came to Brooklyn and went after my bus. this is a respect sport, not trash talking. What about this s***?

"Some people love that. but for me, it's a bad night". This is respect. I told you before, guys, I want to change this game.

Saturday night was no different and the undefeated Russian could be heard saying "Let's talk now" as he overwhelmed McGregor with ground and pound.

The 47-year-old wrestler was asked on Twitter if he would consider switching to UFC - and he took the opportunity to ridicule the Irishman. In the interview, the USA mixed-martial arts athlete told Joe Rogan that President Trump called him to beat the "Russian".

White said any other UFC fighters involved in the brawl would not fight in the organisation again.

"What Khabib did to himself tonight, he was set up. all the mean things that were said about him. he won the fight. There's no need for a rematch".

McGregor has been paid in full but Nurmagomedov is reportedly still waiting for his paycheck.

But Khabib's team face repercussions for the incident, with president Dana White ready to throw them out of the UFC.
