McGregor was incensed after Nurmagomedov confronted a member of his team in NY earlier in that week, which ended with Nurmagomedov winning the UFC 155-pound belt.

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.

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.

"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". He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus. "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".

"I don't understand how people can talk about how I jump on the cage", Nurmagomedov added.

White said three members of Nurmagomedov's team were detained by police, but released after McGregor refused to press charges.

"He was like, 'We don't like each other, whatever.' He doesn't care about charges".

The commission's first move was to hold Nurmagomedov's guaranteed US$2 million purse indefinitely, and it's unclear whether law enforcement will pursue charges. Can these guys get visas to get back in the country?

"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".

White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt". You know, him and Putin and. what they talking bout. He looked great doing it.
