  • Conor Mc Gregor speaking at a pre-fight press conference where he repeatedly insulted his opponent

Executive director Bob Bennett said the Nevada Athletic Commission intends to file a complaint following its investigation into the actions of Nurmagomedov and his team for setting off a post-fight melee immediately after McGregor submitted to Nurmagomedov's choke in the fourth round.

Meanwhile, McGregor was involved in a separate skirmish with others who had jumped into the octagon before the situations eventually were diffused as the fighters were escorted from T-Mobile Arena. "The police did what they could do and the security did a great job of containing it", UFC president Dana White said in a post-fight media conference.

"We have to see what happens. can these guys get visas and get back in the country?"

Former UFC interim champ Tony Ferguson saw off Anthony Pettis in his return to action in the co-main event on Saturday, with the pair serving up a brutal slugfest that saw "El Cucuy" win via second-round TKO.

Relatives said the limousine was carrying four sisters and their friends to a 30th birthday celebration for the youngest. The Gansevoort, New York-based company says it also has met with state and federal authorities and plans to do so again.

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

As the fall-out continues from the violent scenes inside and outside the Octagon after Nurmagomedov had forced McGregor to tap out, we were joined by MMA Fighting's Deputy Managing Editor Marc Raimondi to discuss UFC229 and where that leaves the key protagonists.

McGregor's signature pre-fight trash-talk gab took on a more insidious nature, which clearly got to Nurmagomedov and exploded into violent chaos after the fight was supposed to be over. Though not near the three million buys he had spoken about before the fight, he did say the numbers are "way over two million". "So the sanctions against Khabib will be tougher than the UFC". What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage?

"You do whatever you want in the Octagon", Nurmagomedov Sr. I think there is something being released on Netflix soon, a documentary based around that fight and it will have all the rounds. "I'm sure Herb Dean was looking at it closely and considering saying to Conor, "You've got to do something". We (fighters) are sportsmen and champions and we should hold ourselves to a higher standard. "I know my father is going to smash me", he said.
