McGregor, Khabib fans face off in vicious, scary Vegas melee

UFC 229

WATCH: Conor McGregor vs. Khabib UFC Fight Descends Into Chaos in Post-Match Brawl

The post-fight meleé has gained so numerous headlines but the fourth round finish will rankle McGregor for a while yet.

In the aftermath, Tukhugov went on social media and, according to translation by journalist Karim Zidan, said he slapped McGregor in the brawl - just the way he promised he would. "They gave him his and they're keeping Khabib's".

Geordie then stated that McGregor would have to beat Khabib in order to be seen as "the best fighter in the world" - which isn't looking likely, as Khabib faces potential suspension for his assault on McGregor's Jiu Jitsu coach following his victory.

Before their UFC 229 fight, McGregor and Nurmagomedov said their feud would continue no matter what happened in the Octagon.

McGregor's US$3m purse was not withheld after commission officials examined video footage and determined his side had done nothing wrong.

He also held that Khabib's performance "legitimized every criticism anyone has ever had" in regards to McGregor's career.

It was a sharp turnaround for Severino. "This is definitely a different crowd (than 2009-12's postseason runs)", said CC Sabathia. And when Boone did call for a reliever, he summoned a starter, Lance Lynn , rather than someone from the deep NY bullpen.

Trump claims Kavanaugh allegations are 'Democrat hoax' in new attack
The new justice's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. Trump signed Kavanaugh's commission later Saturday, with Chief Justice John Roberts swearing in the new justice Saturday night.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will make lock horns later tonight (tomorrow morning as per IST) as the two men get set for war at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Again, we need to see how this plays out". "There's gonna be an investigation by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and. there's gonna be big-money fines, and these guys are in big trouble".

Nurmagomedov, who defended his belt successfully for the first time, was livid at the end of the fight and demanded to be given his title. I thought people would throw whatever they had into the octagon and it would be a risky situation, so I didn't do it.

White says Khabib had the opportunity to walk out of that place a champion, instead of flying over the cage and doing the things that he did. Three of Nurmagedov's staff were arrested but then released after Conor said he did not want to press charges.

Khabib has 2 UFC records to his name with a spotless fight record of 27-0, as well as an 8 fight winning streak, more than justifying his position at the top of the MMA.
