A hard week for Conor McGregor has just gotten worse, as he has taken a dive down the pound for pound rankings following his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

Khabib dominated from start to finish against McGregor and finished the fight with a rear naked choke after a long period of grappling that forced McGregor to tap.

UFC president Dana White says Conor McGregor has already called him, asking for an immediate rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Stefer further maintained that Khabib's post-fight incident cannot be justified since it could set a bad example for public in general and underage children who watched the match.

McGregor was issued a 30-day competition suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) after the bout, among several short-term bans for fighters on the card in what is a common move after MMA bouts, with no contact allowed until October 28 before McGregor's ban expires November 6.

"(The commission) took his whole purse right now, and they're talking about keeping his purse. I do not think that should happen.

"Oh, he absolutely keeps his title". Members of Nurmagomedov's crew were also arrested for attacking McGregor in the Octagon. ESPN was told by White that the Russian had not yet been paid for the fight, while McGregor had received his purse of $3 million.

White defended against critics who said the promotion had stoked the flames of the brawl by highlighting an infamous bus attack by McGregor. The first title of the champion of UFC, he won in 2015.

Not letting a single swing of momentum slip, Khabib mounted Conor, pulling the Irishman's limbs before he somehow made it to his feet.
