  • Dana White Talks Possible Fines and Suspensions, Says Both Checks on Hold

Nurmagomedov (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC) submitted Conor McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in the fourth round of the UFC 229 main event this past Saturday.

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.

He said the Nevada State Athletic Commission "is going to hand down some type of fine or suspension" for Nurmagomedov's post-fight antics.

The UFC boss Dana White refused to give Nurmagomedov his lightweight championship belt in the octagon over fears what the angry crowd would do, leaving the Russian fighter requiring a Las Vegas metropolitan police escort out of the building. "We'll see how things play out".

The NSAC, however, quickly deemed his actions did not warrant freezing his paycheck. I warned him. For me, discipline comes first.

The UFC president, Dana White, has not ruled out a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov despite their fight at the weekend ending in ugly scenes.

But at 43 years old and coming off the back of a two-year suspension, Silva appears an unlikely candidate for McGregor's next fight - and that's even before you consider the weight difference. They were released when McGregor confirmed he didn't want to press charges.

"Some people love that. but for me, it's a bad night". He also said the UFC took extra precautions to prevent this type of situation, but it was unavoidable.

White also said of the three Nurmagomedov associates: "The guys who jumped in will never fight here".

"If you want Khabib", said Rockhold, a former UFC middleweight champion, "he'll want a record-breaking number". 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".

"What Khabib did to himself tonight, he was set up. all the mean things that were said about him. he won the fight". "I know my father is going to smash me when I go home".

"I was like 'didn't all the commissioners get the memo like the National Football League did that you can't show the violent hits, the unethical and illegal things and still use it in promotion".
