Microphones picked up comment from Conor McGregor after third round against Khabib

McGregor has been accused of crossing lines in his attempts to hype the fight, which is expected to smash the previous pay-per-view buyrate record when official figures are released.

A rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov is reportedly in the works with the Irishman hoping to get his revenge in front of home fans in Dublin. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".

"We had so many police here, I don't even know if the city was safe tonight", White cracked. "He's going to have to master the stand-up game and everything else, but what I've found over the years is that when you take a guy like this, who has competed all over the world in big events, they're calm and relaxed and they'll develop if you push them along and nurture them the right way". Nurmagomedov said after apologising to the Nevada commission during a brief post-fight statement to reporters, his title belt displayed on the dais before him.

And now, Conor's mother Margaret, who was also present at the fight has shared a heartfelt message following her son's defeat and UFC brawl. "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father".

White said any other UFC fighters involved in the brawl would not fight in the organisation again.


The man holding that title now, the unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov, is one of the most unsafe fighters in the world and someone who has draw the ire of McGregor as of late.

"I want to be one of the guys who fight with Cormier before he finish his career".

"The fans got an incredible fight and a great show". "When you have such an incredible event that we've worked hard to build for several months, and it goes ideal. this is not what we're about". "He would have looked like a stud, instead of flying over the cage and doing the things that he did".

"He had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion", White said. I mean he is heavyweight champion, in two categories, two division. "It should have been a very different night for him".
