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.

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.
