Why did Conor McGregor NOT speak after Khabib fight?

Why did Conor McGregor NOT speak after Khabib fight?

The UFC 229 scene also recalled Floyd Mayweather's fight with Zab Judah in 2006, in which the fighters' trainers brawled in the ring between rounds and almost set off a riot; the post-fight fracas between entourages and fans at heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe's fight with Andrew Golota in 1996; and a Strikeforce MMA show in Nashville in 2010 which ended with a post-fight brawl carried live on CBS. "I just want to make you are that this was not me", explained De La Hoya. "Does the Nevada State Athletic Commission fine him and not allow him to compete again?"

Police eventually separated the dueling brawls, and both McGregor and Khabib were escorted out of the Las Vegas arena. McGregor continued with his usual trash-talking but Khabib did well to avoid confrontations during the press conferences and weigh-ins. He came to Brooklyn and he broke a bus, he nearly killed a couple of people.

His last fight in Dublin at 3Arena broke the venue's decibel level record, knocking out Diego Brandão in July 2014 to win the performance of the night. While that was taking place, several of Nurmagomedov's teammates entered the cage to attack McGregor.

"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. When you put him the wrong way he's going to tap. "This is the first time this happened", White said.

And whatever punishment Nurmagomedov faces, his drawing power will be increased exponentially when he returns to MMA. He looked great doing it. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. MMAjunkie obtained the list of disclosed paydays from the NSAC prior to the event.
