Conor McGregor's next fight most likely to be rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov

McGregor (21-4) suffered a fourth-round submission loss to Nurmagomedov (27-0) at UFC 229 last weekend in Las Vegas.

A brawl ensued on the outside while a number of Khabib's camp entered the octagon and blindsided McGregor with a flurry of shots before security eventually intervened.

It also came after he apologised on Instagram for jumping into the crowd at the T-Mobile Arena following the conclusion of the fight. Moments after standing over a beaten McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion stunned everyone when he scaled the cage wall and flew into a rage.

Dos Anjos, watching like everyone else, posted on social media "This guy Dillan Dennis he is nobody, he just (expletive) Conor's balls and hide behind him, that's his job". "We'll see. I don't know. He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father", he said in the post-fight conference, without answering any questions before leaving. "There is no penalty for their actions and it condones this type of behavior and consequently our sport loses its sacred respect". White said the UFC will allow the NSAC to conduct its hearings before making a decision on Nurmagomedov's next fight.

Even though he would stand to earn far more, the undefeated Dagestani fighter may also feel he has comprehensively buried the threat from McGregor - whose record slipped to 21-4 - and wants to move on. Daniel Cormier has offered some i.

"My account was hacked, I just want to make you are that this was not me." wrote De La Hoya on Twitter.

Since justices serve lifetime appointments, the political consequences are likely to last long beyond Trump's administration. The latest justice to join the bench, Neil Gorsuch, spoke past year during his swearing-in at the White House Rose Garden.

Nurmagomedov re-entered the octagon and confronted White for not strapping on his championship belt.

"It's bad", White said.

Beginning with a dolly he threw at a bus Nurmagomedov was in that led to criminal charges against McGregor back in April, Saturday's fight got very personal, very quickly.

Former UFC interim champ Tony Ferguson saw off Anthony Pettis in his return to action in the co-main event on Saturday, with the pair serving up a brutal slugfest that saw "El Cucuy" win via second-round TKO. They've been saying mean things for 18 years in the UFC.

That apparently didn't happen, although White was pleased with the outcome.
