Khabib Nurmagomedov's Father Not Happy with His Son's Actions At UFC 229

Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor returned to the octagon after a almost two-year hiatus at last weekend's UFC 229 event, where he attempted to reclaim the UFC's 155-pound title from undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Nevada Sate Athletic Commission has reportedly withheld Nurmagomedov's payment for the fight and filed a formal complaint against both fighters over the incident.

Nurmagomedov and McGregor will face a suspension and will be fined from the Nevada commission and that the Russian fighter could be stripped of his title if it is determined that he will be suspended for any length of time. McGregor then landed a punch on a member of Nurmagomedov's team who had made his way into the octagon.

"(The NAC) took his whole purse right now and they are talking about keeping his purse.

"We knew some things could happen after this fight, so we had everything in place to make sure that didn't happen", White said.

"Oh, he absolutely keeps his title".

"He came up to me and he was like 'hey man, '" Ortega told TMZ of the moment when Danis approached him in a bar, in the hours immediately after the fight.

A victory over McGregor was 11th for Nurmagomedov in the UFC, just on account of his 27 fights by rules of the mixed single combats, in all he won.

"I don't think there are too many people that don't understand why he did it but he shouldn't have done it", White said. "The guy that's yelling at you means nothing".

Khabib's American Kickboxing Academy teammate Daniel Cormier still occupies the top spot in the rankings after he defeated Stipe Miocic to win the world heavyweight championship at UFC 226 in July.

Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience MMA Show, John Kavanagh, McGregor's head coach, revealed that Conor was very upset after making a technical mistake which led to Khabib's second-round knockdown.
