"We lost the match but won the battle", McGregor wrote. "The war goes on". McGregor tweeted after the fight that he was "looking forward to the rematch", too.
After submitting McGregor (21-4) in the fourth round Saturday, Nurmagomedov (27-0) leapt over the cage and got into a physical altercation with members of McGregor's corner. "I didn't see Khabib jumping over the cage like that".
"We knew some things could happen after this fight, so we had everything in place to make sure that didn't happen", White said.
UFC 229 was marred by an ugly brawl at the conclusion of its main event.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission has withheld Nurmagomedov's $2 million disclosed purse, pending a full review of what took place after the championship fight on Saturday. We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next.
"Unfortunately, he is going to be suspended for a period of time, which means that the belt would probably be stripped from him". He and a group of people illegally entered the venue for the event and attacked a bus in an attempt to get to Nurmagomedov in retaliation for him confronting McGregor's friend and teammate Artem Lobov.

One man who seemed to see the brawl very differently was retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya.
Marnell said the commission is looking into measures to punish those individuals, despite McGregor's decision not to pursue charges.
"The guys who jumped in will never fight here", said White in the conference.
"Incredible performance by both fighters @thenotoriousmma and @khabib_nurmagomedov But to end it like they did was a huge embarrassment to the sport". When you have such an awesome event that we've worked hard to build over the last several months and it goes ideal, I mean literally it was too eerie. Everybody made weight, everything was so smooth.
Nurmagomedov issued an apology but remained defiant.
"First of all, I want to say sorry to the athletic commission, Nevada and sorry to Vegas". "Good knock", he said on Twitter yesterday. I'm a human being, but I don't understand how people can talk about jumping on the cage when he talks about my religion, he talks about my country, he talks about my father and he comes to Brooklyn and he broke the bus and nearly killed a couple of people.
