Khabib Nurmagomedov receives hero's welcome as he lands home in Russian Federation

Conor McGregor vowed to return as king of the octagon but this was a catastrophe for the Irishman rather than a coronation.

McGregor had called Nurmagomedov, who does not drink alcohol because of his Muslim faith, "backwards" because he would not share his Proper Twelve whiskey with him, had branded his father a "quivering coward" and spoke negatively about Dagestan, Khabib's homeland. Shortly after UFC 229, McGregor tweeted, "Good knock".

That's when it all kicked off as Nurmagomedov jumped out of the Octagon to confront McGregor's team and members of the Russian's camp rushed the cage to attack "The Notorious".

Ferguson called out both McGregor and Nurmagomedov after his win against Pettis, and could also be a potential next opponent for McGregor.

"I don't know when things started turning into some kind of s- show?" "This is a respectful sport". You can not talk about religion or nations.

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.

The exciting nature of the fight, and the fact that Ferguson has been on Khabib's radar for so long - including the ill-fated UFC 223 match-up that fell through due to Ferguson's injury - could finally come to fruition, assuming Khabib is not kept out of action for too long through suspension. When you're exhausted and when you've been pounded for four rounds. let's not forget that, in that second round, Khabib put it on him bad. After the fracas, two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier helped calm his friend and stablemate.

White sought adequate security for the event ever since McGregor, who launched the first attack back in April, on a bus carrying Nurmagomedov to a UFC event in Brooklyn, was arrested and spent a night in jail. "White says (h/t Brett Okamoto of ESPN), "[Nurmagomedov] has to go before the Nevada commission, and we have to see what's going to happen with Khabib and this whole mess.

It was, however, the events after the main event which got everyone talking.
