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. 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.

One Irish fan is knocked out and left with blood streaming from his face during the disturbing incident.

"We lost the match but won the battle", he tweeted, showing a photo of his bruised eye.

The Senate leader claimed the vacancy shouldn't be filled in the months leading up to a presidential election. Trump watched the vote on a large-screen television tuned to Fox News in a wood-paneled cabin on the plane.

Nurmagomedov was due to receive a $2 million guaranteed base salary for the fight, according to figures disclosed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which sanctioned the mixed martial arts bout. He and a group of people illegally entered the venue for the event and attacked a bus in an attempt to get to Nurmagomedov in retaliation for him confronting McGregor's friend and teammate Artem Lobov. I know this is not my best side. "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father. And I mean Khabib", White said.

Bisping opined that once Nurmgomedov took McGregor's back in the fourth round, the Irishman was looking for a way out of the fight. "The biggest night of the year, and I'm disgusted".

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. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality". McGregor's signature pre-fight trash-talk gab took on a more insidious nature, which clearly got to Nurmagomedov and exploded into violent chaos after the fight was supposed to be over.

Saturday's UFC 229 event is in the books, and now that the dust has settled in Las Vegas, it's time to go to the scorecard to see who the big winners were at T-Mobile Arena.
