"[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.
The original footage reviewed by the NSAC seemingly made McGregor look like the victim but upon subsequent examination of different camera angles of the incident, it's been chose to file complaints against both men involved in the main event. "And knowing what he knows now, he was able to make adjustments in the second Nate Diaz fight and you'd imagine that he'd be able to make some adjustments after having seen Khabib over the course of four rounds".
White acknowledged Nurmagomedov's lightweight title could be stripped if his actions result in a significant suspension.
I think they should take $250,000 from him.
- Dillon Danis, the fighter at the center of Khabib Nurmagomedov's rage this past Saturday night after UFC 229, has responded to former UFC champion Rafael dos Anjos. Nurmagomedov could face fines or suspensions for his role in the incident, White said.
And McGregor responded: "I love it champ!" Though not near the three million buys he had spoken about before the fight, he did say the numbers are "way over two million".
"The Nevada Athletic Commission pulled footage from us and there's an investigation going on", UFC President Dana White said at a post-fight press conference, as transcribed by SB Nation's Bloody Elbow blog.
Many believe that McGregor had crossed the line from trash talking to bigotry before the fight with Nurmagomedov. Outside of the octagon, you need to exist peacefully.
Both fighters have had the finger waved at them for being the one to blame for what happened. I'm a human being, but I don't understand how people can talk about jumping on the cage when he talks about my religion, he talks about my country, he talks about my father and he comes to Brooklyn and he broke the bus and nearly killed a couple of people. "I'm sure Herb Dean was looking at it closely and considering saying to Conor, "You've got to do something".
