UFC Fighter Says President Trump Told Him to Knock Russian Fighter Out Getty Images7 Oct 2018

UFC president Dana White implemented a later start time when Michael Bisping fought in Manchester, delaying the fight to 3am.

"I promise you this is not what a mixed martial arts event is normally like", White said.

But for all the things Nurmagomedov said McGregor shouldn't have done, no fighter can jump out of the octagon to attack someone without harsh repercussions.

After getting rocked in the first two rounds, McGregor regained composure for the third as he managed to keep the fight off the canvas and trade strikes with the Russian. "You know, you just won a great fight, you fought brilliantly, you're about to get the belt on and people are going to respect the fact that you fought well and you won the fight".

Tukhugov posted a video bragging about attacking McGregor, who refused to press charges after several arrests were made in Las Vegas.

Slower Than Expected Job Growth in September
Wall Street closed down sharply following the news, extending losses from Thursday's selloff due to a sudden jump in bond yields. But wage increases so far have been modest, something that puzzles economists but allows the Fed to move gradually.

"A lot of stuff that shouldn't happen, Khabib jumped over the cage and went after one of Conor's guys who I guess was trash talking him", White 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".

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

It was the second half of the tweet which saw De La Hoya widely criticised, however, as the boxing legend appeared to blame McGregor's fans for the post-fight melee. "Looking forward to the rematch". McGregor appeared to be referring to a book written several years ago which claimed that Abdelaziz once worked as an informant for the NYPD and Federal Bureau of Investigation among US Muslims in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
