    It's just talk right now. Khabib exited the cage and attacked a spectator which is criminal. Conor might be in a situation where he violated the conditions of his probation for the bus attack if he assaulted someone other that his opponent. After Conor tapped-out Khabib spit at him. Fighters should demonstrate a certain level of professionalism by respecting each other.

    Right but I think this kind of behaviour has extended on since the heyday of boxing. These guys are just continuing that tradition. It is very sad because it sets an awful example for kids who look up to them.

    Dana White must be salivating. This will surely call for a rematch $$$$.

    Even though I don't think this was planned, I agree that Dana will try to exploit it.

    All this back and forth is mere bullshit. Even if they stripped the title from him, there will be a rematch. It’s just more money in everyone’s pocket.

    Opinion: WWE or UFC? Don’t be fooled by Dana’s ‘fake outrage’

    "It was White, you might remember, who expressed outrage in Brooklyn in April when McGregor took a hand truck and smashed the window of the bus carrying Nurmagomedov and others.

    The rampage, White said at the time, was “the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of the (UFC).” But there were no real consequences for McGregor, other than a brief trip to jail and a court appearance. Certainly no suspension by the UFC, which badly needs its only remaining big star to sell pay-per-views and keep investors happy.

    A few months later, White was using video from the incident to promote the fight. And a few days before the fight, he stood smiling as McGregor spouted a bizarre conspiracy theory about the Russian’s manager and the 9/11 terrorist attacks and then vowed to put a hole in Nurmagomedov’s skull."

    I suspect taking the entire purse would be illegal.
