Three individuals believed to be a part of Nurmagomedov's team were initially arrested for their part in the attack on McGregor, who was sucker punched by a man who jumped into the Octagon and attacked him from behind.

Nurmagomedov went after a jiu-jitsu training member in McGregor's camp, Dillon Danis, a Bellator MMA fighter who mouthed something after the fight, which sent the champion into a rage.

Abdelaziz, who McGregor had called a "terrorist" in the build up to Saturday, suggested his fighter had been provoked by the comments the Irishman had made prior to them meeting in the octagon.

"First of all, I want to say sorry to Athletic Commission, sorry to Vegas", Nurmagomedov said of the brawl after the UFC 229 fight. He came to Brooklyn and he broke a bus, he nearly killed a couple of people.

"Khabib diving over [the cage] was ridiculous", UFC president Dana White said during the press conference. "Why people talk about I jumped on the cage?" For Khabib it wasn't fight promotion, it was really personal.

Panthers S Reid will start against Giants
These are the key players for the Carolina Panthers to secure a win over the New York Giants and to keep pace in the NFC South. He has at least 100 all-purpose yards in all four of the Giants games and is second on the team in receptions with 27.

Humble in defeat, McGregor immediately took to Twitter to declare his desire for a rematch, putting pressure on Nurmagomedov to accept.

"This is a respectful sport, not a trash-talking sport".

The Irish hero was not required to fulfil his post-fight media duties after being allowed to leave the T-Mobile Arena in the wake of the melee.

De La Hoya wrote: "My account was hacked, I just want to make you aware that this was not me. Looking forward to the rematch".

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager Ali Abdelaziz has suggested Conor McGregor's pre-fight insults were behind the Russian's decision to climb out of the octagon and instigate a mass brawl following UFC 229 on Saturday.
