Khabib Nurmagomedov left punches Conor Mc Gregor during their fight on Sunday

Khabib Nurmagomedov comprehensively answered one question by submitting Conor McGregor in their UFC megabout in Las Vegas on Saturday night, but the fight and ensuing carnage has posed new dilemmas for both men.

Having made McGregor tap out, Nurmagomedov turned his attention outside the octagon, leaping out of the cage toward the McGregor's stablemate Dillon Danis and igniting a melee.

After Nurmagomedov's action White opted against handing the Russian his belt because of security concerns, while his purse is now being withheld pending an investigation from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

It has emerged that 53 people flying to Las Vegas from Dublin Airport to watch the McGregor fight on Sunday morning were not permitted to travel.

. Such a fight would be likely to generate huge revenues, despite the distaste generated by Saturday's events, and White said he had already heard from McGregor. "And knowing what he knows now, he was able to make adjustments in the second Nate Diaz fight and you'd imagine that he'd be able to make some adjustments after having seen Khabib over the course of four rounds".

Nurmagomedov issued an apology to the NSAC on Saturday. McGregor can be seen throwing a punch at one of Nurmagomedov's teammates on video, too.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo said this week it had to be repaired and properly maintained. Officials had previously estimated that around 100 people were missing.

Conor McGregor claims he "won the battle" just two days after losing his UFC 229 lightweight fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

While Khabib vs McGregor II would definitely do numbers, there are other fighters who are looking for a title shot as well.

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. The discussion understandably surrounds his behavior after the fight - in addition to the actions of three members of his camp, which UFC president Dana White told reporters were arrested and then released after McGregor declined to press charges.

Nurmagomedov re-entered the octagon and confronted White for not strapping on his championship belt. I wanted him to win because I'm exhausted of seeing that type of style win. What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage? I know this is not my best side.
