McGregor tapped out in the fourth round of the UFC Lightweight Title fight on Saturday night. However, very few were talking about the fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov once night ended. After the tap bout, Nurmagomedov incited a brawl between the two teams when he jumped over the cage and went after McGregor coach Dillon Danis. Still in the cage, McGregor had to fight off multiple members of Khabib's team. During the brawl, he was sucker punched from behind by one of Khabib's teammates. 

Three members of Khabib's team were arrested over the incident, but McGregor did not press charges

The former Lightweight Champion did not speak to the media during the post-fight press conference. UFC President Dana White told the media that McGregor was more upset about losing the fight than he was over the melee.
