UFC winner's purse frozen after mass brawl

UFC winner's purse frozen after mass brawl

Conor McGregor squares off with the undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the headliner of the UFC 229 card on Saturday night in Las Vegas as "Notorious" looks to reclaim his title back.

But new footage has revealed how that wasn't exactly the case.

Nurmagomedov forced McGregor to tap out in a famous victory but sparked a mass brawl when he leapt out of the octagon to confront Dillon Danis, one of his opponent's team members.

The men jumped into the Octagon and swung at McGregor, and were subsequently arrested following the insane melee.

Did McGregor throw the first punch?

"I slapped him as promised".

UFC President Dana White said "these guys are in big trouble" and "it's going to be ugly", after Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor were involved in the scuffle.

White also said the Nevada State Athletic Commission is withholding Nurmagomedov's check pending an investigation but that McGregor was paid after the commission reviewed tape, interviewed McGregor and concluded there was no reason to withhold his check.

Unpleasant to hear but McGregor would do well to pay them some heed. Conor refused to press charges. Round 2 started off more to McGregor's liking with the two fighters standing toe-to-toe and Khabib caught McGregor with a cracking right hook sending him sprawling to the floor before retaking the mounted position and dishing out the punishment.

"First of all, I want to say sorry to Athletic Commission, sorry to Vegas", he said. "This is not my best side".

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. What about he talk about my religion?

However, it proved to be too little, too late, and Nurmagomedov was once again on top in the fourth, sapping McGregor's energy with his excruciating pressure before the choke ended the fight 3:03 into the fourth round.
