What McGregor/Khabib Camps Are Saying After Fight-Night In Las Vegas

Khabib Nurmagomedov has defended his UFC lightweight title against Conor McGregor

However, it proved to be too little, too late, and Nurmagomedov was once again on top in the fourth, sapping McGregor's energy with his excruciating pressure before the choke ended the fight 3:03 into the fourth round.

A number of Khabib's teammates then snuck into the octagon and began assaulting McGregor, who was quite clearly shattered from the war he had previously gone through.

"Conor could get lucky and land a good punch but when Khabib gets a hold of him, it's over", he said. They are withholding Khabib's purse, they are not withholding Conor's. He then vaulted The Octagon and waded into McGregor's cornermen and had to be escorted through a hail of abuse and beer.

In a recent Instagram post, Daniel "DC" Cormier had some kind words of praise and motivation for his fellow American Kick Boxing Academy teammate Khabib Nurmagomedov, ahead of his title defense against Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

Angry fans of the two fighters brawled in the concourses of the arena as police and security staff struggled to maintain any semblance of order, and violent scuffles continued into the night around the Las Vegas strip. After McGregor tapped, referee Herb Dean had to restrain Nurmagomedov and push him away from McGregor.

"First of all, I want to say sorry to Athletic Commission, sorry to Vegas", he said.

Growth forecasts for emerging markets were given a more severe haircut by the Washington-based lender. It said the ongoing Brexit negotiations had created "pervasive uncertainty" about future trade costs.

After a lengthy delay, Nurmagomedov eventually addressed a media conference at the T-Mobile Arena. "I know this is not my best side".

"The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled the footage from us and there's an investigation going on".

"If I put this belt on you, people will lose their shit and start throwing stuff in The Octagon".

"I don't understand how people can talk about I jump on the cage".

Nurmagomedov, who defended his belt successfully for the first time, was livid at the end of the fight and demanded to be given his title. "Of course, this is biggest fight in UFC history and we're going to break record numbers. but for me, it's personal".
