Khabib Nurmagomedov is held back outside of the cage after his win over Conor McGregor

Nurmagomedov leapt out of the Octagon to attack members of McGregor's team, sparking a mass brawl inside and outside of the cage.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has withheld Nurmagomedov's $2 million disclosed purse, pending a full review of what took place after the championship fight on Saturday.

McGregor (21-4) suffered a fourth-round submission loss to Nurmagomedov (27-0) at UFC 229 last weekend in Las Vegas.

When things finally calmed down UFC President Dana White addressed the media in the UFC 229 post-fight press conference.

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 USA state of Nevada, to see the action for themselves.

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

But Smith's teammate, Henry Ruggs III, was there to pick it up at the 12 and took it in for the touchdown. After forcing a fumble on the Razorbacks first possession, Alabama got the ball back.

Khabib's father and trainer, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, would be a dream match-up for him, which might factor in his son's thinking. McGregor can be seen throwing a punch at one of Nurmagomedov's teammates on video, too.

- Dillon Danis, the fighter at the center of Khabib Nurmagomedov's rage this past Saturday night after UFC 229, has responded to former UFC champion Rafael dos Anjos. Those two have been lined up three different times to fight and it hasn't happened. He said that the UFC will also hand over footage from the melee to the Atheltic Commission for further investigation into the matter.

"You do whatever you want in the Octagon", Nurmagomedov Sr.

However, the UFC is a business at the end of the day and if there's one guy who can demand a fight that is guaranteed to break the box office, it's Conor McGregor.

"Dana White says Conor McGregor has already called him asking for a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov".

Kavanagh also outlined that he felt that many onlookers in the crowd believed that, had the sparring session been scored like a fight, McGregor would have won. What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage? And he's going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six months suspension. I think there is something being released on Netflix soon, a documentary based around that fight and it will have all the rounds. I know this is not my best side.
