Paul Pierce Scuffles with Security and Calls Them Racist at McGregor Fight

In the aftermath of the defeat McGregor posted that he was "looking forward to the rematch" - and has now backed that up with a defiant message on Monday.

He apologised to "Nevada, the police and Las Vegas", but then criticised McGregor's antics and harsh words that helped make UFC 229 the richest pay-per-view in organisation history, pointing to those as the root of Saturday's melee.

"We lost the match but won the battle".

UFC lightweight champion Khabib jumped over the octagon walls during his clash with McGregor, with a brawl subsequently erupting with members of his opponent's team. I mean Khabib. We'll see how this thing plays out.

White also said of the three Nurmagomedov associates: "The guys who jumped in will never fight here". "We had two [security] meetings tonight, one of them two fights before the main event".

Hey, Here's the Google Pixel Slate
For instance, the Google Pixel 3 XL has a deep and ugly notch (obviously! ), it comes with 4 GB RAM and Snapdragon 845 chipset. Apart from that, Pixel Slate will most probably be just a Wi-Fi enabled tablet and not a GSM/CDMA data enabled tablet.

Still you've got to worry for Khabib, who knows what punishment his dad will give him - he might take away internet privileges or his Xbox.

Nurmagomedov issued an apology but remained defiant.

UFC president Dana White revealed it wasn't him or the company the Khabib had to worry about when it came to discipline but the Nevada Athletic Commission saying, "The Nevada State Athletic Commission is going to go after him pretty hard". Guys, you can not talk about this stuff and, for me, this is very important.

"This is not my best side.my father is going to smash me when I get home", Nurmagomedov said. In Nurmagomedov's apology for triggering the postfight melee, he said of McGregor, "He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people".

"I slapped him as promised", the 27-year-old teammate of Khabib Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram, as translated by ESPN contributor Karim Zidan. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".
