Khabib Nurmagomedov's Dad Criticises His Son After Post Fight Antics

On Monday, UFC president Dana White appeared on ESPN's First Take and said McGregor is looking for a rematch with Nurmagomedov immediately.

Rather than celebrate, Nurmagomedov jumped over the fence of the UFC octagon and charged at McGregor's cageside friend Dillon Danis.

White also said of the three Nurmagomedov associates: "The guys who jumped in will never fight here".

"We had so many police here, I don't even know if the city was safe tonight", White cracked.

One man who seemed to see the brawl very differently was retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya. McGregor declined to press charges. When you have such an incredible event that we've worked hard to build over the last several months and it goes ideal, I mean literally it was too eerie.

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. Everybody made weight, everything was so smooth.

Nurmagomedov forced Conor McGregor to tap in the fourth round inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Nurmagomedov issued an apology but remained defiant.

Nurmagomedov was due to receive a $2 million guaranteed base salary for the fight, according to figures disclosed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which sanctioned the mixed martial arts bout. I'm a human being.

"This is not the way we want to celebrate such a dominant performance but when you talk about people's country, family and religion and intentionally try to kill someone like he said and the cornermen running their mouths after, this is the fight game and sh- happens", Ali Abdelaziz wrote on Instagram.

The 30-year-old has completed just one fight in a recent six-fight deal with the UFC, and he has already expressed a desire to contest a rematch with Nurmagomedov. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".
