Dana White says Conor McGregor wants rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov Khabib Nurmagomedov Conor McGregor

UFC commentator Joe Rogan laid the blame exclusively at Dillon Danis' door and claimed that it was his taunting which provoked Khabib Nurmagomedov to jump out of the Octagon and kick-start the brawl which saw Conor McGregor subsequently punched from behind by a member of Nurmagomedov's crew.

Khabib's father Abdulmanap says the punishment from Commission and UFC would be pale comparisons to what he'll do to his son.

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

McGregor was issued a 30-day competition suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) after the bout, among several short-term bans for fighters on the card in what is a common move after MMA bouts, with no contact allowed until 28 October before McGregor's ban expires 6 November.

"He is going to get suspended so maybe you give him four to six months' suspension", said White. After talking with aksakals and wise countrymen, they chose to move to other heights.

"And with what happened afterwards, some people say I did the wrong thing, others that I did the right thing". McGregor then landed a punch on a member of Nurmagomedov's team who had made his way into the octagon.

"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. "You should not be able to keep his whole purse". He just beat Conor in front of the entire world - stand up get that belt wrapped around you, you won.

"We have to see how this stuff plays out with Khabib", White said.

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.
