UFC boss: Nurmagomedov won’t be stripped of title

Dillon Danis Khabib Nurmagomedov's Father Not Happy with His Son's Actions At UFC 229

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has met Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the leader congratulating Nurmagomedov on his win over Conor McGregor - which Putin described as "worthy and convincing".

What should have been a celebration of the biggest victory of Khabib Nurmagomedov's career to date devolved into something else entirely at UFC 229 on Saturday night. "And he's going to get suspended (by the NAC), so maybe you give him a four-to-six month suspension".

According to Nevada Athletic Commission, McGregor is one of 13 fighters from Saturday night's card to be given a suspension due to medical reasons.

This is not to say that tempers wouldn't have flared regardless because the hostility between the teams was already at boiling point after pre-fight comments about Nurmagomedov's country and family but the new footage does seem to suggest that it was the exchange with Magomedov that caused "The Eagle" to jump out of the cage. Russian grappler was justifying his actions by defending his family and religion, but his father wouldn't take into consideration when it's time to impose his punishment.

"He absolutely keeps his title", White said.

"[The NAC] took his whole purse right now and they are talking about keeping his purse".

"First I was like, 'Damn, what are you doing here - especially alone?'" Ortega told TMZ after bumping into Danis.

McGregor was then involved in a scuffle inside the cage after two individuals entered it behind him and both fighters were escorted out of the main arena in Las Vegas.

Three of his party were arrested but later released, with McGregor refusing to press charges.

"We knew some things could happen after this fight, so we had everything in place to make sure that didn't happen", White said.

"I don't think there are too many people who don't understand why he did it, but he shouldn't have done it", White said. He just beat Conor in front of the entire world. "You won. The guy who's yelling at you means nothing".
