Khabib brawl after Conor McGregor fight happened for THIS reason - Hardy

10 October 2018

Khabib regained the UFC lightweight title after he consigned McGregor to defeat in the fourth round with victory by submission.

UFC president White revealed Nurmagomedov had, for the time being, been denied his share of the purse following the chaos, while also insisting there was no guarantee the 30-year-old would not be stripped of the belt.

Tukhugov is one of Nurmagomedov's teammates and Chechen countrymen.

"It's bad", White said of the melee.

"First of all I want to say sorry to athletic commission Nevada, to Vegas, I know this is not my best side".

"The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled the footage from us and there's an investigation going on". He talk about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father. "What about this...?" Nurmagomedov asked during the press conference. I thought people would throw whatever they had into the octagon and it would be a risky situation, so I didn't do it.

White confirmed there had been three arrests for the post-fight fracas. The 17-second clip shows several fights going on simultaneously, though it was unclear who was involved or whether anyone was arrested or detained. Round 3 started off with both fighters initially traded punches, knees, uppercuts and elbows in the center of the ring, both dishing out a fair deal of punishment to each other. He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus.

And Hardy is convinced that Khabib felt the need to vent his fury and therefore felt the need to attack someone in the McGregor camp.

"Honestly, for me, this is more than defending my title", Nurmagomedov said then. Honestly, for me, it's personal.

That is the opinion of former UFC fighter Dan Hardy.

"There is way deeper s-- than just a fight on Saturday night", McGregor said Thursday. F-- peace. There will never be peace here. I'm gonna to aim right between that man's eyes, and this is never over.
