Las Vegas police say no arrests made after McGregor Khabib brawl

After Nurmagomedov's action White opted against handing the Russian his belt because of security concerns, while his purse is now being withheld pending an investigation from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

"The governor [Brian Sandoval] was here". "I love watching him fight".

"We knew some things could happen after this fight, so we had everything in place to make sure that didn't happen", White said. He and a group of people illegally entered the venue for the event and attacked a bus in an attempt to get to Nurmagomedov in retaliation for him confronting McGregor's friend and teammate Artem Lobov.

The NSAC, however, quickly deemed his actions did not warrant freezing his paycheck.

McGregor meanwhile was still in the ring when at least two of Nurmagomedov's team attacked the former champion.

Following McGregor's submission in the fourth round with a rear naked choke, Nurmagomedov climbed out of the octagon and soon was in a brawl with members of McGregor's entourage. "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father. There is no penalty for their actions and it condones this type of behavior and consequently our sport loses its sacred respect". "You can not talk about religion, you can not talk about nation".

Three individuals were arrested, but were released after McGregor declined to press charges.

Jonathan Murray later raged online about being prevented from travelling in a foul-mouthed rant and then shared a photo of McGregor's new Proper No 12 whiskey. "Conor was more concerned about the fight [he lost]", White said. "He cares about the fight".

Nurmagomedov, from Russian Federation, had his $2 million purse held with a complaint pending, multiple media outlets reported. "We'll see how things play out".

"There's going to be fines", White said. "The biggest night of the year, and I'm disgusted".

"There will be lots more of this in the future - very good co-operation between gardai and their colleagues in the United States", a source said last night.

Many believe that McGregor had crossed the line from trash talking to bigotry before the fight with Nurmagomedov.

McGregor also threw punches at members of Nurmagomedov's camp after the fight. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality". White said he was concerned if he did, the pro-McGregor crowd would've showered the octagon and fans below with debris.

For McGregor, the crushing nature of the defeat on his return to MMA raises questions about where he goes from here.

Dana White says that there could be stiff penalties for the brawl that broke out after the main event of UFC 229. And he's going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six months suspension.
