McGregor also said that "the war goes on" as he seemingly ramps up his campaign to book a rematch bout with Nurmagomedov.
UFC President Dana White on the fallout from the NFL national anthem protests. While members of Nurmagomedov's team jumping into the Octagon and attacking McGregor.
"We have to see what happens with the Nevada State Athletic Commission", White said in his post-fight press conference. "If he gets suspended, it depends how long it is but yeah he will probably get stripped if it's a long suspension", he added. Once on Sunday, with the relatively harmless message, "Looking forward to the rematch". And the same thing for the other guy. Bisping opined that once Nurmgomedov took McGregor's back in the fourth round, the Irishman was looking for a way out of the fight.
One man who seemed to see the brawl very differently was retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya.
"Unfortunately, when you allow more and more B.S. during weigh ins and outside of fights, you only slap fighters on the wrist for acting like barbarians and then offer them bigger contracts and reward them for this behaviour". I kept saying this is too insane man.
It does remain a mystery, however, whether Nurmagomedov will receive the money he was promised from the fight. I want apologize to the Nevada [State] Athletic Commission, the governor of Nevada and I want to thank the Las Vegas police department and security for doing such an unbelievable job. I know this is not my best side. "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father".
The 30-year-old has completed just one fight in a recent six-fight deal with the UFC, and he has already expressed a desire to contest a rematch with Nurmagomedov. I don't understand. You cannot talk about religion, you cannot talk about nations, you cannot talk about this stuff.
