Conor McGregor sends message to fans following Khabib Nurmagomedov UFC 229 brawl

Nurmagomedov made Conor McGregor tap out in the fourth round of their UFC 229 lightweight showdown in Las Vegas.

However, the Russian ruined his historic win seconds later, jumping out of the octagon to attack McGregor’s pal Dillon Danis.

McGregor was also attacked in the ring by two of Nurmagomedov’s team-mates – Zubaira Tukhugov and Islam Makhachev.

Nurmagomedov has since threatened to quit the UFC if they choose to punish Tukhugov for punching McGregor.

The Nevada Athletic Commission has suspended both McGregor and Nurmagomedov for at least 10 days following the post-fight brawl.

And The Notorious has taken to social media – to thank his fans for buying his Proper Twelve whiskey.

McGregor posted on his Instagram: “The sales record and the buy record. Thank you to you, the fans @properwhiskey @ufc.”

The Irishman’s whiskey cost £39.95 per bottle.

Before McGregor’s fight with Nurmagomedov, stores in Ireland had to limit customers to two bottles at a time due to popular demand.

Reports have claimed ‘bars ran out [of Proper Twelve whiskey] during fight night’ and most stock across the United states was depleted by Monday morning.

Speaking after the fight in Las Vegas, Khabib apologised for his actions, saying: “I want to say sorry to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

“This is not my best side. He talked about my religion, my country, my father.

“He came to Brooklyn, he broke a bus and nearly killed two people.

“So why do people still talk about me jumping over the cage? I have shown respect.

“I told you guys: his whole team and him, they are tap machines. Today he tapped. (I am) undisputed and undefeated.

“This is a respectful sport. This is not a trash-talking sport.

“I want to change this game. You cannot talk about religions and nations.

“This for me is very important. Thank you for waiting for me.

“I know my father is gonna smash me when I go home. Nevada: sorry. Vegas: sorry.”
