Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor via fourth-round submission in UFC 229 in Las Vegas on Saturday night. But the main story from the event turned out to be an ugly postfight brawl.

UFC president Dana White told FS1 that three members of Nurmagomedov’s team were arrested after attacking McGregor in the ring postfight. Nurmagomedov jumped over the Octagon and got into a fight with Dillon Danis, and that was quickly followed by members of Nurmagomedov’s team attacking McGregor.

“Three guys have been arrested. There are going to be charges filed against them, I’m sure. God knows what the Nevada State Athletic Commission is going to do to Khabib and his guys. Are these guys ever going to get a visa again to get back into this country? There’s a lot of repercussions from what they did tonight, ones that I don’t think they even realize yet.”

White added to ESPN that Nurmagomedov could face suspension, and that the Nevada State Athletic Commission was holding Nurmagomedov’s purse.

White told ESPN it was “a very bad night” for the UFC, saying that Nurmagomedov could earn a suspension.

White told ESPN the Nevada State Athletic Commission was holding Nurmagomedov’s purse. However, the commission has paid McGregor after reviewing tape and concluding there was no need to withhold his check, he said.

McGregor won’t press charges on Nurmagomedov’s team, according to White.

There’s sure to be much more to come from this story in the coming days.
