Nevada commission to file complaints on Nurmagomedov, McGregor

Lightweight champion Nurmagomedov vaulted the cage to attack a member of McGregor's team just moments after his title bout against the Irishman had finished.

Nurmagomedov apologised for his actions but said he had been provoked during the build-up to the fight, when McGregor had mocked his religion, father and country.

By adding the words "the war goes on", McGregor, who had a black eye in the photograph that accompanied the post, is heavily implying that this rivalry is not over. Also, Tony Ferguson may have solidified himself as the number one contender after his win at UFC 229.

Diaz is set to make his return against number three-ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier in the main event at UFC 230 in NY in November, and should he emerge victorious, McGregor could be next in line.

Khabib's response following fight night, with the Nevada State Athletic Commission's decisions on everyone's minds?

Early Sunday morning, McGregor was already thinking of a rematch.

"That's what Conor has asked for. When the governor's in the room and goes running out. the governor oversees the commission, so I'm sure it's going to be ugly", White said. Tony Ferguson looked wonderful. "And knowing what he knows now, he was able to make adjustments in the second Nate Diaz fight and you'd imagine that he'd be able to make some adjustments after having seen Khabib over the course of four rounds".

Many believe that McGregor had crossed the line from trash talking to bigotry before the fight with Nurmagomedov. "Conor was more concerned about the fight [he lost]", White said.

Dana White said that the UFC will not look to circumvent any suspension by holding a Nurmagomedov fight overseas. The episode worsened when an unidentified associate of Nurmagomedov jumped into the cage and struck McGregor with two sucker punches to the back of the head. "I'm sure Herb Dean was looking at it closely and considering saying to Conor, "You've got to do something".

"There's no doubt he's justified for being upset, but first of all, you, you just won the fight against the biggest superstar in all of sports, let alone our sport".

And McGregor responded: "I love it champ!"

"Khabib would certainly be a favourite in the re-match if there is one and there probably will be". "I am going to regard this severely".

McGregor had called Nurmagomedov, who does not drink alcohol because of his Muslim faith, "backwards" because he would not share his Proper Twelve whiskey with him, had branded his father a "quivering coward" and spoke negatively about Dagestan, Khabib's homeland.

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. That's the spectacle. But I am categorically against fighting outside the octagon.

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