Last night at UFC 229, Conor McGregor finally made his return to the cage. Conor got destroyed by lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov finally being submitted in the fourth round.
After the fight chaos ensued and Conor got jumped by Khabib’s crew. According to Dana White and the Nevada Commission, Conor McGregor has been paid in full and Khabib will not be paid.
Our journalist in Las Vegas caught up with Khabib’s friend who said that Khabib is angry and his team is furious as well. Khabib said he will not leave Las Vegas until he has been paid and plans to “Pay a visit” to the Commission offices Monday morning. Here is a word from Ariel Helwani on the situation:
Khabib Nurmagomedov has yet to be paid for last night’s fight, according to his team. The Nevada Athletic Commission told UFC president Dana White last night they were withholding his pay until further review of the post-fight incident. Conor McGregor was paid in full.
