McGregor Takes Huge Fall In P4P Rankings Following Khabib Loss

McGregor Takes Huge Fall In P4P Rankings Following Khabib Loss

McGregor was beaten for only the fourth time when he tapped out in the fourth round following Nurmagomedov administering a rear-naked choke.

Since the post-fight brawl at UFC 229, there's been plenty of speculation and debate as to whether Khabib Nurmagomedov could be stripped of the lightweight belt. "We have held 100 percent of one of the fighter's money", Anthony said, as Khabib has not received his $2 million for the fight, while Conor has been given his payment. At that point, two more of Nurmagomedov's cornermen began attack mcGregor, leading to an all out brawl in the octagon.

McGregor was issued a 30-day competition suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) after the bout, among several short-term bans for fighters on the card in what is a common move after MMA bouts, with no contact allowed until October 28 before McGregor's ban expires November 6.

"They're talking about keeping his purse".

"Oh, he absolutely keeps his title".

Thereafter, it is very likely to re-curve north eastwards, move towards Gangetic West Bengal across Odisha and weaken gradually. The state's disaster management chief, D Varaprasad, said that shortages of drinking water were a concern in many areas.

"Regarding whether Khabib should be sanctioned or not I think the UFC has their own consideration", said Stefer.

While Khabib's father got a big heart for forgiving Irishman, but he hasn't forgiven his son for post-fight chaos.

Nurmagomedov jumped over the cage to go after McGregor's grappling partner Dillon Danis, who was reportedly shouting at him following the end of the fight.

"There's too many people who don't understand why he did it, but he shouldn't have done it", White told TMZ Sports on Monday.

The loss has had a significant effect on McGregor's pound for pound ranking, with the former two-weight world champion falling six places, from second to eighth, with his opponent Khabib jumping up to second from eighth with his victory. We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next. The first title of the champion of UFC, he won in 2015.
