The Conor McGregor vs Khabib fight ended in a nasty brawl following the Irishman’s long-awaited return to the UFC.
McGregor appeared to confirm a rematch was on the cards on social media after he suffered the spectacular loss in Las Vegas.
He wrote on social media: “Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch.”
Following the fight, a massive brawl erupted with Khabib leaping out of the octagon to attack Bellator fighter Dillon Danis, one of McGregor’s closest allies in the camp.
McGregor was then attacked from behind by two of Khabib’s friends.
But fans were also shocked on social media by Khabib’s actions when he got home.
Khabib was filmed re-watching him defeat McGregor, joined with friends.
One fan said online: “Can’t make it up”.
Another branded Khabib “savage”, with a third claiming the fighter was a “legend”.
In the press conference after the mass brawl, Khabib apologised for his actions.
Nurmagomedov revealed: “First of all I want to say sorry to Nevada Athletic Commission and second to Vegas. I know this is not my best side. I’m a human being.
“But I don’t understand how people can talk about how I jump on the cage.
“He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father.
“He came to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he almost killed a couple of people. What about this s***?”
Welterweight champion Tyrone Woodley, working on BT Sport, explained what happened after the fight.
He said: “It went into complete pandemonium. Khabib jumped out the octagon. He went after Conor’s team-mate Dillon.
“Then Khabib’s coaches went after Conor after he was recovering from a loss. It was complete chaos.”
