Former UFC Champion On Conor McGregor - Khabib Incident, McGregor Teammate Comments

Following his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6, former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor tweeted a photo of himself on the morning of October 8. Moments after standing over a beaten McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion stunned everyone when he scaled the cage wall and flew into a rage. Despite being under the scrutiny of the athletic commission, there was no word yet if Nurmagomedov might face legal charges for going outside of the Octagon and attacking McGregor teammate Dillon Danis.

UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis delivered one of the great post-fight interviews after his stunning come from behind KO of Alexander Volkov amidst the craziness of UFC 229. He came to Brooklyn, he broke a bus and almost killed two people.

But on Monday, McGregor came out defiant as he showed the scars of battle in his first photograph since fight night.

Nurmagomedov successfully defended his lightweight title by getting McGregor to submit in the fourth round with a rear-naked choke, yet the fight was overshadowed by the madness that immediately followed. He nearly killed a couple of people.

Evidently undaunted by the fallout of this infamous UFC 229 post-fight brawl with Conor McGregor and his team, Zubaira Tukhugov took to social media post-fight, where he bragged about "slapping" the Irish megastar and assured that McGregor did not land any return fire on him.

"The fans got an unbelievable fight and a great show".

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

UFC president Dana White implemented a later start time when Michael Bisping fought in Manchester, delaying the fight to 3am. "When the governor's in the room and goes running out. the governor oversees the commission, so I'm sure it's going to be ugly", White said. "He would have looked like a stud, instead of flying over the cage and doing the things that he did".
