Meanwhile, McGregor was involved in a bust-up in the octagon with members of his Russian opponent's team. We have to see how this stuff plays out with Khabib and what's next.

Unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov will not be stripped of his UFC lightweight title despite his role in a post-match brawl Saturday, UFC president Dana White said in a website posting Tuesday.

"If I put this belt on you, everyone's going to start throwing sh-t into the Octagon".

McGregor also threw punches at members of Nurmagomedov's camp after the fight. The NSAC is also holding Nurmagomedov's $2 million fight purse for the event, pending an investigation. According to sources, McGregor was hit repeatedly in the rear of the head by another MMA fighter who entered the octagon from the stands. The NSAC, however, quickly deemed his actions did not warrant freezing his paycheck.

Khabib's American Kickboxing Academy teammate Daniel Cormier still occupies the top spot in the rankings after he defeated Stipe Miocic to win the world heavyweight championship at UFC 226 in July.

Nurmagomedov faces potential fines, community service and even suspension for his actions on fight night. I do not think that that should happen. "He can't fight in the state of NY", said White. "I didn't see Khabib jumping over the cage like that. You know it's one of the hardest clean shots Conor has been caught with in his MMA career".

"There's no doubt he's justified for being upset, but first of all, you, you just won the fight against the biggest superstar in all of sports, let alone our sport".

"He had a hood on, trying to be low key, but he came up to me, he was respectful, he was like 'hey man, you're holding it down for the jiu jitsu community, you're doing your thing, I admire you, I appreciate it.' He was cool about the whole situation".
