Conor McGregor Has Already Called Dana White Asking For Rematch

McGregor (21-4) suffered a fourth-round submission loss to Nurmagomedov (27-0) at UFC 229 last weekend in Las Vegas. Shortly after Khabib incited his brawl, two men presumably involved with Khabib entered the Octagon and attacked McGregor, sparking a second melee.

Conor McGregor during UFC 229 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, on October 6, 2018. Moments after standing over a beaten McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion stunned everyone when he scaled the cage wall and flew into a rage.

Nurmagomedov beat McGregor inside four rounds in Las Vegas before he leapt into the crowd and fought with one of his opponent's trainers.

As far as Im aware, I did an interview for it recently it's a three part documentary that's going to be on Netflix soon, so people will be able to make up their own minds about it. "But [McGregor] talked about my religion, my country, my father". "This is a respectful sport". "I didn't see Khabib jumping over the cage like that". "Conor was more concerned about the fight [he lost]", White said.

"So the sanctions against Khabib will be tougher than the UFC". In Nurmagomedov's apology for triggering the postfight melee, he said of McGregor, "He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people".

White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt". "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".

"It's bad", White said.

McGregor's rivalry with Nurmagomedov was sparked when the Russian was seen on video slapping McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov in April, which led to McGregor attacking a bus full of UFC athletes and staff. I know this is not my best side.

However, the UFC is a business at the end of the day and if there's one guy who can demand a fight that is guaranteed to break the box office, it's Conor McGregor.

That apparently didn't happen, although White was pleased with the outcome.
