Michael Bisping: McGregor 'Gave Up' Once Nurmagomedov Applied The Choke Hold

  • Dana White Talks Possible Fines and Suspensions, Says Both Checks on Hold

Nurmagomedov successfully defended his lightweight title by getting McGregor to submit in the fourth round with a rear-naked choke, yet the fight was overshadowed by the mayhem that ensued.

A prone McGregor was then seemingly attacked by someone from Nurmagomedov's camp as the bad blood that has been building up ahead of this fight came to a head.

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.

One Irish fan is knocked out and left with blood streaming from his face during the disturbing incident. "When the governor's in the room and goes running out. the governor oversees the commission, so I'm sure it's going to be ugly", White said. I don't understand. You cannot talk about religion, you cannot talk about nations, you cannot talk about this stuff.


Diaz is set to make his return against number three-ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier in the main event at UFC 230 in NY in November, and should he emerge victorious, McGregor could be next in line. However, White said neither fighter was blameless, and described McGregor as a "superstar". "The biggest night of the year, and I'm disgusted". After the fracas, two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier helped calm his friend and stablemate. White said he was concerned if he did, the pro-McGregor crowd would've showered the octagon and fans below with debris. "We're way over 2 million, so I'm happy".

Beginning with a dolly he threw at a bus Nurmagomedov was in that led to criminal charges against McGregor back in April, Saturday's fight got very personal, very quickly. And the same thing for the other guy. If the organization is going to win because that is a fight that they can make money with it, and fans want to see it. White said the UFC will allow the NSAC to conduct its hearings before making a decision on Nurmagomedov's next fight.

"Conor is going to come out the victim here and Khabib is going to have a very hard time getting a visa or a green card". They've been saying mean things for 18 years in the UFC.

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