Conor McGregor was suspended from fighting

6 October 2018 Conor Mc Gregor following defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in their UFC lightweight championship fight during UFC 229 at T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada USA

Nurmagomedov's teammate at American Kickboxing Academy, Luke Rockhold, said on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday that if the UFC wants Nurmagomedov to fight a rematch, the promotion will have to pay him more than McGregor, who is by far the highest-paid fighter in MMA.

Things were in such disarray that UFC President Dana White was unable to present Nurmagomedov with the belt in the ring and instead ordered everyone into their respective locker rooms. McGregor then landed a punch on a member of Nurmagomedov's team who had made his way into the octagon.

Nurmagomedov was hustled out surrounded by security officers as a pro-McGregor crowd jeered and threw drinks at him.

The worldwide online betting group revealed that amongst their customers, this weekend's fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor was the most popular fight in the sport's history.

"He absolutely keeps his title", White said. "So maybe you give him a four to six month suspension".

White said the NAC has not given Nurmagomedov his prize money pending an investigation of the situation and could impose a fine for his actions.

"(The commission) took his whole purse right now, and they're talking about keeping his purse.

"Regarding whether Khabib should be sanctioned or not I think the UFC has their own consideration", said Stefer.

When asked whether the Russian fighter would receive a suspension or fine, Anothony said: "It's always both".

"There's too many people who don't understand why he did it, but he shouldn't have done it", White told TMZ Sports on Monday.

"He is the world champion".

"@Danawhite you lucky that you give my belt, or I would smash your auto, I know your parking location", he had posted. "The guy that's yelling at you means nothing".

This was the champion's first title defense; one that he won last April in Brooklyn at the Barclay's Center when he beat late replacement Al Iaquinta by decision at UFC 223.
