Khabib Nurmagomedov receives hero's welcome as he lands home in Russian Federation

Kavanagh was honest and upfront about the fight, giving listeners an insight into McGregor's gameplan to beat Khabib and also his thoughts on the post fight melee. Unfortunately, when you allow more and more B.S. during weigh ins and outside of fights; You only slap fighters on the wrist for acting like barbarians and then offer them bigger contracts and reward them for this behavior. It released McGregor's $3 million check, but has made a decision to file a complaint against him too after further review.

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.

"[Nurmagomedov] has to go before the Nevada commission [after his purse from the fight was withheld due to the brawl], and we have to see what's going to happen with Khabib and this whole mess", White told ESPN on Monday. "There's gonna be an investigation. there's gonna be big-money fines, and these guys are in big trouble". That apparently caused his emotions to boil over after the fight.

Following the incidents at the weekend, Khabib held a press conference in which he apologised for his actions, although he highlighted his disdain for McGregor's antics ahead of the clash which involved an attack on his team bus.

"First of all, I want to say sorry to Nevada Athletic Commission and second to Vegas".

"The pay-per-view numbers are starting to roll in, so I'm in a much better mood than I was on Saturday", White said to TMZ Sports. I'm a human being.

"Some people love that. but for me, it's a bad night". "This is for me very important".

Khabib Nurmagomedov has yet to receive his massive paycheck for defeating Conor McGregor at UFC 229 last Saturday, as state officials investigate the fighter's role in sparking a post-match brawl that spilled into the crowd at T-Mobile Arena.

There's no excuse for what Khabib did and he should expect to be hit hard for it.

Even though he would stand to earn far more, the undefeated Dagestani fighter may also feel he has comprehensively buried the threat from McGregor - whose record slipped to 21-4 - and wants to move on.
