UFC champ could face fine, suspension for post-fight fracas

UFC 229 ceremonial weigh-in

McGregor's latest post follows a series of Instagram messages from rival Nurmagomedov, including one saying he hopes he didn't "hurt anyone's feelings" by launching his cageside assault.

In co-main event action, Tony Ferguson and Anthony Pettis square off with the victor likely standing as the No. 1 contender to whichever man emerges as champion at T-Mobile Arena.

McGregor has already made public his desire to meet the Russian in a rematch.

While UFC president Dana White was left disappointed with the post-fight melee, Khabib has apologised to the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his behaviour. "I don't want people to talk shit about, like, opponents, talk shit about his father, religion", Khabib said.

"Worry about, he talked about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people".

"My account was hacked". I recommend any of you guys to go pick up a pair of gloves and hand wraps and spar somebody.

When Nurmagomedov forced the biggest star in mixed martial arts to tap out Saturday night to end what's likely to be the most lucrative show in UFC history, he had fashioned the ideal response to McGregor's verbal insults and physical attacks.

Several hundred responses to the original post prompted De La Hoya to act, although many more to the new tweet have doubted a "hack" was responsible.

Ferguson said that McGregor doesn't want anything to do with him and that the UFC will make sure that the two don't meet inside the cage.

"But some things aren't for fight promotion".

'What about him talking about my family, my religion, the bus?' he asked.

Returning to the octagon after a almost two-year hiatus, McGregor suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Russian fighter, ending in a fourth-round submission via rear-naked choke. "Different culture man. Sucks".
