  • UFC 229: Ferguson outworks Pettis in absolute war

The post-fight headlines have been dominated by the melee which marred the event as Nurmagomedov jumped out of the Octagon to confront McGregor's team while three members of Nurmagomedov's camp rushed the cage to attack McGregor.

UFC president Dana White implemented a later start time when Michael Bisping fought in Manchester, delaying the fight to 3am. "It is going to be ugly".

"We have to see what happens. can these guys get visas and get back in the country?" "I know this is not my best side".

In the most dramatic of fashion, Lewis somehow turned the fight around. In April, McGregor came to Lobov's defence when his colleague was confronted by Nurmagomedov in Brooklyn. "Does the Nevada State Athletic Commission fine him and not allow him to compete again?" "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father". What about this?. I don't understand. "But what are you going to do when a guy flies like a monkey over a cage?"

And after the third round, which was the only one won by the Irishman, microphones picked up an interesting comment from McGregor.

Keep on reading for a full fight card from UFC 229 as well as highlights and updates from the show. McGregor appeared to be referring to a book written several years ago which claimed that Abdelaziz once worked as an informant for the NYPD and Federal Bureau of Investigation among US Muslims in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Tropical Depression could form by late this weekend
It would then be given the name Michael - becoming the 13th named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. The depression is expected to turn north later on Sunday and continue in that direction through Wednesday.

And the Russian - who himself fights at lightweight - has poked fun at McGregor on instagram. "And I mean Khabib", White said. That's how it works.

White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt". In truth, such displays of poor sportsmanship are fairly rare in MMA.

"I promised to make him answer for his words and I did". "When you have such an wonderful event that we've worked hard to build for several months, and it goes flawless. this is not what we're about. This isn't how we act". I mean he is heavyweight champion, in two categories, two division.

It's still not clear, however, what ramifications Nurmagomedov will face.

In the build-up to the UFC 229 main event, "The Notorious" predicted that he would be dominating the dialogue in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. That massive audience saw Nurmagomedov put on a attractive display of well-rounded fighting against the biggest puncher in MMA. He had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion. "He would have looked like a stud, instead of flying over the cage and doing the things that he did".
