Why did Conor McGregor NOT speak after Khabib fight?

UFC president Dana White implemented a later start time when Michael Bisping fought in Manchester, delaying the fight to 3am.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas was packed on Saturday as McGregor was making the much-anticipated return to UFC and taking on one of the best fighters in the MMA promotion brand.

"I promise you this is not what a mixed martial arts event is normally like", White said. Despite being under the scrutiny of the athletic commission, there was no word yet if Nurmagomedov might face legal charges for going outside of the Octagon and attacking McGregor teammate Dillon Danis. "Khabib dominated the fight, won the fight by submission".

"A lot of stuff that shouldn't happen, Khabib jumped over the cage and went after one of Conor's guys who I guess was trash talking him", White said.

Speaking to Niall McGrath about Price's comments on McGregor, he said: "In your fight career, everyone's got to do what's best for them, you know".

"He talk about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people - what about this?" he asked reporters.

Nurmagomedov (27-0), after defeating McGregor in the fourth round by rear-naked chokehold in a dominant exhibition of his wrestling skill, was hardly contrite in a brief news-conference appearance. "Looking forward to the rematch".

The New York Post also reported that apparent Russian and Irish fans got into a fight. The episode worsened when an unidentified associate of Nurmagomedov jumped into the cage and struck McGregor with two sucker punches to the back of the head. He looked great doing it. People have been saying mean things to each other for 18 years here in the UFC. "It should have been a very different night for him".
