Conor McGregor planning Dublin rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov after UFC 229 chaos

UFC 229: Ferguson outworks Pettis in absolute war

Former lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor will return from a almost two-year absence to face current titleholder Khabib Nurmagomedov.

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 commission is withholding Nurmagomedov's $2 million fight purse.

The riot began when four members of Khabib's team jumped into the cage and reportedly began to attack Conor.

McGregor has been accused of crossing lines in his attempts to hype the fight, which is expected to smash the previous pay-per-view buyrate record when official figures are released. Nurmagomedov said after apologising to the Nevada commission during a brief post-fight statement to reporters, his title belt displayed on the dais before him.

"Worry about, he talked 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".

"My face when someone says that they didn't like my jump, but I tried so hard", Nurmagomedov posted, adding: "I hope I didn't hurt anyone's feelings with this jump".

On the incident itself, UFC star Daniel Cormier said: "Hey guys, two wrongs don't make it right".

While UFC president Dana White was left disappointed with the post-fight melee, Khabib has apologised to the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his behaviour.

Joseph Duffy joined Off The Brawl this week ahead of UFC 229 and the Irishman broke the news that he and his partner are expecting their first child, his recovery from a shoulder injury and when he hopes to be back in the octagon.

"The fans got an awesome fight and a great show".
