McGregor had been pulled back into the Octagon after trying to follow his victorious opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov into a fight in the crowd.

Danis (1-0) was at the centre of a heated brawl after Khabib Nurmagomedov's fourth-round submission win over McGregor at UFC 229 on Saturday with the Russian fighter scaling the fence to attack McGregor's coach only seconds after referee Herb Dean put an end to the contest.

A rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov is reportedly in the works with the Irishman hoping to get his revenge in front of home fans in Dublin.

But Khabib's team face repercussions for the incident, with president Dana White ready to throw them out of the UFC.

But Nurmagomedov said he had been brought to a boil by McGregor's behaviour since April, when McGregor infamously attacked a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and several other UFC fighters.

The commission is withholding Nurmagomedov's $2 million fight purse. "Does the Nevada State Athletic Commission fine him and not allow him to compete again?"

He said the investigation was thorough, and for the witnesses interviewed "it's a cross between an endoscopy and a colonoscopy". White House spokesman Raj Shah said the Trump administration was "fully confident" Mr Kavanaugh had the necessary support.

"What about he talked about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father?"

"I don't understand how people can talk about I jump on the cage, you know?"

None of the commentary team picked up on the above at all last night.

Viewers believe that the Dubliner said "it's only business" after the buzzer sounded, presumably referencing his pre-fight trash talk with which Nurmagomedov took such umbrage.

The wait is through and tomorrow night's (Sat., October 6, 2018) UFC 229 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, is at hand.
