McGregor wants an immediate rematch with Nurmagomedov

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

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.

The most pressing issue for "The Eagle" is how heavily he is sanctioned for the carnage that unfolded at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night.

Chuck Liddell took UFC to task for rewarding fighters for bad behavior, likely referencing Conor McGregor's recent bus attack before a UFC event in Brooklyn, New York.

However, more than 50 people - mostly men and mostly from the Greater Dublin Area - were not allowed to travel to the so-called Sin City, in the western U.S. state of Nevada, to see the action for themselves.

Nurmagomedov had already said he was wary of his father's reaction to Saturday's events.

"The pay-per-view numbers are starting to roll in, so I'm in a much better mood than I was on Saturday", White told TMZ Sports on Monday. McGregor was also seen trying to punch a member of Nurmagomedov's entourage who was in the Octagon.

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. According to White, several members of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested but McGregor has declined to press charges. "I promised to make him answer for his words and I did".

Nurmagomedov also faces the possibility of being stripped of his lightweight title by the UFC if he is hit with a lengthy suspension.

McGregor's $3-million ($4.2-million) was not withheld after commission officials examined video footage and determined his side had done nothing wrong in the melee.

The exciting nature of the fight, and the fact that Ferguson has been on Khabib's radar for so long - including the ill-fated UFC 223 match-up that fell through due to Ferguson's injury - could finally come to fruition, assuming Khabib is not kept out of action for too long through suspension. What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage?

"If you want Khabib", said Rockhold, a former UFC middleweight champion, "he'll want a record-breaking number". He got over that thing quick and was going after one of Conor's cornermen. "The first time I saw him on screen he didn't look 100 percent in that fight".
