Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor returned to the octagon after a almost two-year hiatus at last weekend's UFC 229 event, where he attempted to reclaim the UFC's 155-pound title from undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The UFC lightweight champion took to to Instagram on Tuesday to poke fun at UFC president Dana White over what repercussions White would have faced had he stripped Nurmagomedov of his belt after Saturday's post-fight brawl.
The Nevada Sate Athletic Commission has reportedly withheld Nurmagomedov's payment for the fight and filed a formal complaint against both fighters over the incident.
Well, Khabib didn't take it easy on Conor Mcgregor, but Khabib's father said he has forgiven Irishman for all the pre-fight comments. According to White, several members of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested but McGregor has declined to press charges. After talking with aksakals and wise countrymen, they made a decision to move to other heights.
White, speaking to TMZ, added: "He absolutely keeps his title".
