The Nevada State Athletic Commission was quick to take necessary action. The commission is withholding Nurmagomedov’s $2 million fight purse. However, Conor McGregor got paid his $3 Million after the commission reviewed footage of the incident, executive director Bob Bennett released McGregor’s money.

“The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled footage from us. There’s an ongoing investigation,” White said at the UFC 229 Post-Fight Press Conference. “They’re withholding Khabib’s purse. They did not hold Conor’s purse, but they’re holding Khabib’s.”

Dana White said three members of Nurmagomedov’s team involved in the incident were arrested and released late Saturday night. White said McGregor told him that he would not press charges.

Meanwhile, Conor McGregor tweeted out that he wants to have a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Whether the Irishmen is granted his wish or not, only time will tell.
