Former UFC Champion On Conor McGregor - Khabib Incident, McGregor Teammate Comments

Russian 155lb king Nurmagomedov's dominant victory cemented his place at the top of the UFC lightweight tree - brutally silencing talk of a potential dethroning by the returning McGregor.

Nurmagomedov made McGregor tap out during Saturday's UFC 229 main event, but instead of celebrating his accomplishment, the Russian fighter sparked a enormous post-fight melee when he leapt over the cage and jumped into the crowd, while members from his corner entered the octagon and attacked McGregor.

Rather than celebrate, Nurmagomedov jumped over the fence of the UFC octagon and charged at McGregor's cageside friend Dillon Danis. To call it chaos would be a gross understatement.

McGregor also mentioned the name of former middleweight king Anderson Silva before his fight with Nurmagomedov - hailing him as a "legend" of the game and touting the notion that he would be interested in taking on the Brazilian.

As he already said, McGregor's found himself in a war with Nurmagomedov.

Sancho, 18, is one of three teenagers alongside 19-year-olds Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mason Mount. In nine games, he has scored once and provided eight assists.

McGregor's rivalry with Nurmagomedov was sparked when the Russian was seen on video slapping McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov in April, which led to McGregor attacking a bus full of UFC athletes and staff. The discussion understandably surrounds his behavior after the fight - in addition to the actions of three members of his camp, which UFC president Dana White told reporters were arrested and then released after McGregor declined to press charges. "I've been doing this for 18 years and this is the biggest night ever and I couldn't be more disappointed".

"I know my father is going to smash me when I go home".

While Khabib vs McGregor II would definitely do numbers, there are other fighters who are looking for a title shot as well. When you're exhausted and when you've been pounded for four rounds. let's not forget that, in that second round, Khabib put it on him bad. I mean Khabib. We'll see how this thing plays out. Wiz says it's on the UFC to get a handle on this.

It was, however, the events after the main event which got everyone talking.
