Nick Diaz on Khabib Nurmagomedov: ‘I think my brother can beat him’

Khabib Nurmagomedov looks on stern-faced at a pre-fight press conference before taking on Conor McGregor

Executive director Bob Bennett said the Nevada Athletic Commission intends to file a complaint following its investigation into the actions of Nurmagomedov and his team for setting off a post-fight melee immediately after McGregor submitted to Nurmagomedov's choke in the fourth round.

Moments after the fight came to a close, Khabib Nurmagomedov vaulted out of the cage and attacked Conor McGregor's training partner Dillon Danis, which sparked a massive brawl between his and McGregor's teams.

Chuck Liddell took UFC to task for rewarding fighters for bad behavior, likely referencing Conor McGregor's recent bus attack before a UFC event in Brooklyn, New York. We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is in huge trouble, and it has nothing to do with what the UFC lightweight champion did inside the Octagon on Saturday night. However, that would deprive him of an October 27 fight between Nurmagomedov's teammate Zubaira Tukhugov and Artem Lobov, one of McGregor's best friends.

McGregor also threw punches at members of Nurmagomedov's camp after the fight.

Supreme Court nominee in unusual plea as US Senate nears vote
On the hot seat, some senators have been using police escorts in recent days to shield them from protesters and the media. Earlier, the FBI delivered the results of its investigation on the sexual assault allegations to usa senators.

It looks like Khabib Nurmagomedov got the first of what could be many hero's welcomes in his native Dagestan. Those two have been lined up three different times to fight and it hasn't happened. After all were parties were separated, no one involved wished to press charges and no arrests occurred'.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov is Khabib's coach, mentor, and father, and has reportedly said that his sanctions against his son will be far "tougher than the UFC".

White also said of the three Nurmagomedov associates: "The guys who jumped in will never fight here". "I didn't see Khabib jumping over the cage like that". "I promised to make him answer for his words and I did". "They are withholding Khabib's purse, they are not withholding Conor McGregor's". "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".

"I was like 'didn't all the commissioners get the memo like the National Football League did that you can't show the violent hits, the unethical and illegal things and still use it in promotion". They played it over and over again to sell this fight and it sold extremely well as we all know.
