And as Las Vegas police tried to restore inside the T-Mobile Arena Nurmagomedov’s teammates jumped into the cage and attacked McGregor punching him repeatedly.
The incident led to three of Nurmagomedov’s teammates being arrested by Las Vegas Metro police, but they were later released after McGregor refused to press charges against them.
Because of the melee inside the arena victorious Nurmagomedov could not receive his belt.
UFC president Dana White said: “I felt that if we put the belt on him in the middle of the octagon it was gonna rain.

“I thought that people were going to throw whatever they had into the octagon and I thought it would be a dangerous situation, so I didn’t do it.”
The Nevada State Athletic Commission is currently withholding Nurmagomedov’s $2million fight purse pending an investigation into the incident.
However, despite getting beaten, McGregor will receive his $3 million fee.
“There’s an investigation going on,” White added.
“They are withholding Khabib’s purse. They are not withholding Conor McGregor’s.
“They looked at the footage and felt there was no need to withhold his purse, so they gave him his and they’re keeping Khabib’s.”
Both fighters will receive a cut from the pay-per-view revenue – the fight is expected to break the UFC’s previous record of 1.6 million purchases.
