Nurmagomedov won't be stripped of UFC title

Chris Pratt loves Derrick Lewis too but is not a fan of brawls

Remember, Danis was the guy Khabib jumped out of the Octagon and attacked after the fight.

Once things regained some semblance of order, the Nevada State Athletic Commission began reviewing video footage of what transpired and chose to withhold Nurmagomedov's $2 million fight purse, though it released McGregor's $3 million check. "I think what he did was out of line", he said. But it is actually amusing, I was just thinking about this, you know that right hand, if you showed it to a boxing coach he would say "That's terrible".

So what does White think they should do?

The UFC lightweight champion took to to Instagram on Tuesday to poke fun at UFC president Dana White over what repercussions White would have faced had he stripped Nurmagomedov of his belt after Saturday's post-fight brawl.

"He absolutely keeps his title", White said.

"He is going to get suspended so maybe you give him four to six months' suspension", said White.

During the battle, the Russian kept taking McGregor to the mat out wrestling the latter down and also out punched him when they went head to head boxing wise.

After all the trash talk and bad blood surrounding the fight, the first round of the biggest fight in UFC history saw an expected cagey beginning from both men, with Khabib perhaps starting the brighter of the two, scoring a takedown that seemed to trouble McGregor.

Parimatch signed a new worldwide collaboration with the UFC in September, becoming the UFC's first-ever major marketing partner from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region. White said the UFC will allow the NSAC to conduct its hearings before making a decision on Nurmagomedov's next fight. Is Nurmagomedov the new pound-for-pound king after his dominant victory over McGregor? Nurmagomedov faces potential fines, a suspension, and other punishments the commission sees fit for his role in the brawl.
