No one will argue that the Irishman is unmatched in stirring up emotions in his opponents and that psychological warfare is a major part of the fast-talking Dublin fighters weapons, and one reason that he is so popular, but the self-proclaimed King of the UFC lightweight divisions came up against a very different breed of opponent.

Mr White confirmed that the Nevada State Athletic Commission had seized footage of the bout known as UFC229, withheld Nurmagomedov's purse but released McGregor's $4.6 million purse after determining his side had done nothing wrong in the melee and launched an investigation.

"First of all I want to say sorry to athletic commission Nevada, to Vegas, I know this is not my best side". However, he climbed the octagon fence and attacked a person in the audience right after the fight, and teammates of his got involved in a fight with McGregor inside the octagon. He talk about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father.

The rivalry between McGregor and Nurmagomedov has been brewing for years, and it boiled over in April when McGregor attacked a bus Nurmagomedov was riding in at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, before UFC 223. He nearly killed a couple of people.

After a lengthy delay, Nurmagomedov eventually addressed a media conference at the T-Mobile Arena.

Conor McGregor squares off with the undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the headliner of the UFC 229 card on Saturday night in Las Vegas as "Notorious" looks to reclaim his title back.

UFC president, Dana White, refused to put the lightweight championship on Khabib in the Octagon for fear of inciting a full-on riot among the fans. "Other people will get hurt".

"I saw one of Conor's guys yelling at Khabib, Khabib ran and jumped over the octagon, went after him".

Following his loss, McGregor tweeted on October 7: "Good knock".

It will also be intriguing to find out what he believes McGregor's next move should be, and whether he believes a rematch with Khabib is a good idea.
