The Nevada State Athletic Commission is planning to file official complaints against Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov after their post-fight brawl on Saturday night at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, according to ESPN. You can check out his thoughts on the matter that he posted on his Instagram account below.

Translated from Russian, it read: "Friend, even now you are slowing down, otherwise I'm uncomfortable for you myself". "I want to change the game, you can not talk about religion, about nationality".

"I apologise to everyone whom I have offended in our common victory". Even if you were the biggest Conor fan ever, you would at least have to respect him.

"Thank you for your incredible support, I love you, yours truly - Khabib Nurmagomedov".

If and when he's allowed to fight again, Khabib's rematch with McGregor will be that much more anticipated after what transpired on Saturday.

"We lost the match but won the battle".

Meanwhile, McGregor was involved in a separate skirmish with others who had jumped into the octagon before the situations eventually were diffused as the fighters were escorted from T-Mobile Arena.

People wanted to see McGregor's return, and for him take on one of the best lightweights.

UFC 229 was marred by an ugly brawl at the conclusion of its main event.

"[Nurmagomedov] has to go before the Nevada commission [after his purse from the fight was withheld due to the brawl], and we have to see what's going to happen with Khabib and this whole mess", White told ESPN on Monday. Can these guys get visas and get back into the country?

"And I mean Khabib". We know exactly who he is and where he is.

The build up and aftermath of the fight was dominated by McGregor and Khabib's rivalry and disgusting behaviour but on Saturday night it was an excellent and compelling fight and it's a shame it won't be remembered for that.

I think there's something being released on Netflix soon, a documentary based around that fight, and it will have all the rounds. "His actions nearly led to a full scale arena riot. If he gets suspended, it depends how long it is but yeah he will probably get stripped if it's a long suspension", he added. [Former interim lightweight champion] Tony Ferguson looked awesome.
