Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor in the fourth round of their wildly entertaining UFC 229 fight on Saturday.

The NSAC has launched a full investigation into the fight following Nurmagomedov's win over McGregor at T-Mobile Arena, and is now reviewing footage from the fight and interviewing those who were involved.

UFC featherweight Zubaira Tukhugov took to social media Sunday to acknowledge that he was one of the three men who entered the Octagon after the UFC 229 main event and scuffled with Conor McGregor.

However, more than 50 people - mostly men and mostly from the Greater Dublin Area - were not allowed to travel to the so-called Sin City, in the western USA state of Nevada, to see the action for themselves.

White acknowledged Nurmagomedov's lightweight title could be stripped if his actions result in a significant suspension. However, that would deprive him of an October 27 fight between Nurmagomedov's teammate Zubaira Tukhugov and Artem Lobov, one of McGregor's best friends.

White has promised stiff penalties heading Nurmagomedov's and his camp's way, so it's unclear if an immediate rematch could even happen, but it's clear McGregor is champing at the bit to get back into the octagon with Nurmagomedov and exact some revenge.

The aftermath of UFC 229 has left us with many questions but one thing is certain: The Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor feud isn't over. I think there is something being released on Netflix soon, a documentary based around that fight and it will have all the rounds.

In regards to the post-fight scenes and how it all came to a head, Raimondi believes UFC "have some culpability".

"The Nevada Athletic Commission pulled footage from us and there's an investigation going on", UFC President Dana White said at a post-fight press conference, as transcribed by SB Nation's Bloody Elbow blog.

Nurmagomedov re-entered the octagon and confronted White for not strapping on his championship belt. They played it over and over again to sell this fight and it sold extremely well as we all know. What about this? Why are people talking about my jumping over the cage? "I'm sure Herb Dean was looking at it closely and considering saying to Conor, "You've got to do something".
