UFC Fighter Says President Trump Told Him to Knock Russian Fighter Out

UFC 229 ceremonial weigh-in

UFC president Dana White said that after the commission reviewed footage of the incident, executive director Bob Bennett released McGregor's money.

"I don't see any other way around it", said Hardy.

But for all the things Nurmagomedov said McGregor shouldn't have done, no fighter can jump out of the octagon to attack someone without harsh repercussions.

He went on to complain bitterly about McGregor's behaviour in the lead-up to the fight that exacerbated the bad blood between the two teams.

At the same time, a couple of men from Khabib's team entered the cage and started attacking McGregor before the security personnel stepped in and took both the star fighters away from the chaos.

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

"We had so many police here, I don't even know if the city was safe tonight", White cracked. "Looking forward to the rematch".

Nurmagomedov (27-0), after defeating McGregor in the fourth round by rear-naked chokehold in a dominant exhibition of his wrestling skill, was hardly contrite in a brief news-conference appearance.

"What about he talked about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father?"

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

And whatever punishment Nurmagomedov faces, his drawing power will be increased exponentially when he returns to MMA. He had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion.

UFC 229 shattered the promotion's previous gate record with $US17.2 million in ticket sales at T-Mobile Arena, and White expects the pay-per-view sales to break the promotion's record as well. He looked great doing it.
