Dana White does not rule out McGregor-Nurmagomedov rematch despite ugly scenes

Khabib threatens to quit UFC in wake of melee Dana White Talks Possible Fines and Suspensions, Says Both Checks on Hold

Nurmagomedov made McGregor tap out during Saturday's UFC 229 main event, but instead of celebrating his accomplishment, the Russian fighter sparked a enormous post-fight melee when he leapt over the cage and jumped into the crowd, while members from his corner entered the octagon and attacked McGregor.

Three men from the Russian fighter's team entered the octagon and attacked McGregor following the bout.

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. Moments after standing over a beaten McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion stunned everyone when he scaled the cage wall and flew into a rage.

There would be no shortage of storylines going into a potential rematch and while the post-fight melee was condemned by UFC President Dana White, you shouldn't be one bit surprised if footage of the brawl is used in the promotion of a second fight between Nurmagomedov and McGregor.

Dos Anjos, watching like everyone else, posted on social media "This guy Dillan Dennis he is nobody, he just (expletive) Conor's balls and hide behind him, that's his job".

"I know my father is going to smash me when I go home". "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father".

"This is a respectful sport, not a trash-talking sport", said the Russian fighter. While McGregor was paid a base salary of $3 million for the fight, his total haul is expected to be anywhere from $50 million to $100 million, based on estimates from McGregor himself and White. Daniel Cormier has offered some i. This is respectful. I've told you before that I want to change this game.

Nurmagomedov's teammate at American Kickboxing Academy, Luke Rockhold, said on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday that if the UFC wants Nurmagomedov to fight a rematch, the promotion will have to pay him more than McGregor, who is by far the highest-paid fighter in MMA.

"It's bad", White said. This is not my best side.

That apparently didn't happen, although White was pleased with the outcome.
