McGregor tweeted the morning after losing the Nurmagomedov.
A number of Khabib's teammates then snuck into the octagon and began assaulting McGregor, who was quite clearly shattered from the war he had previously gone through.
Unfortunately for Conor McGregor, the pre-fight antics of the bus attack and usual verbal onslaught at the numerous press conferences simply didn't have the desired effect on the cool-headed Khabib "The Eagle" Nurmagomedov.
White added that McGregor had opted against pressing charges against the individuals who attacked him in the octagon. "Two of Khabib's guys got into the octagon, one guy hit Conor with some shots form behind, and that's it", UFC boss Dana White said.
White said that it would be now up to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to decide if Nurmagomedov would face further sanctions.

The details provided by Refinitiv Eikon showed the Islamic Republic exported 1.1 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude last week. The decrease apparently was fueled by buyers seeking alternatives ahead of the start of US sanctions on November 4.
Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will make lock horns later tonight (tomorrow morning as per IST) as the two men get set for war at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"I feel that because it was a one-sided fight, Khabib didn't have chance to get the respect of McGregor. This is not my best side", he said.
"The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled the footage from us and there's an investigation going on". I'm a human being, but I don't understand how people can talk about jumping on the cage when he talks about my religion, he talks about my country, he talks about my father and he comes to Brooklyn and he broke the bus and nearly killed a couple of people. I thought people would throw whatever they had into the octagon and it would be a risky situation, so I didn't do it.
When ring announcer Bruce Buffer announced the result of the main event, both fighters had already been escorted out of the Octagon.
"Honestly, for me, this is more than defending my title", Nurmagomedov said then. "Of course, this is biggest fight in UFC history and we're going to break record numbers. but for me, it's personal".
