UFC President Dana White said after the fight that three of Khabib's coaching team were arrested and taken to jail.

Apparent fans of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor got into a confrontation with police on October 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

However, the Russian fighter said he was unable to understand the fuss around him leaving the Octagon after the main event.

But for all the things Nurmagomedov said McGregor shouldn't have done, no fighter can jump out of the octagon to attack someone without harsh repercussions.

Fans waited nearly two years to see McGregor back in the Octagon but things did not go to plan for the Dublin fighter.

At the press conference, White indicated that McGregor refused to press charges, so the individuals were released.

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

By following his masterful victory with a reckless response to McGregor's lengthy campaign of verbal and physical aggression, Nurmagomedov showcased the best and worst sides of mixed martial arts in a 30-second span.

However for the fight to go ahead, UFC organisers need to overcome a timezone dilemma for pay-per-view buyers in the States.

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

McGregor had called Nurmagomedov, who does not drink alcohol due to his Muslim beliefs, "backwards" because he would not share his Proper Twelve whiskey with him, had branded his father a "quivering coward" and spoke negatively about his home of Dagestan.

Nurmagomedov's future in the sport remains unknown and his teammates are likely to be banned for life after attacking McGregor from both ends amid the chaos. What about he talk about my religion? "It should have been a very different night for him".
