"The war goes on", the Irish star tweeted, accompanied by a picture of himself holding a glass of what is likely to be his own-brand Proper 12 whisky.

McGregor's first public response to the drama came on Twitter early Sunday morning: "Good knock".

In the aftermath of the defeat McGregor posted that he was "looking forward to the rematch" - and has now backed that up with a defiant message on Monday. McGregor was incensed after Nurmagomedov confronted a member of his team in NY earlier in that week, which ended with Nurmagomedov winning the UFC 155-pound belt.

"Nobody saw Khabib diving over there".

"You guys have no idea what we have to prepare for". It happened so fast.

But Joe Lauzon, a UFC fighter from East Bridgewater, said his fellow lightweight blew a big chance last night. The commission is withholding Nurmagomedov's $2 million fight purse. "If he gets suspended, it depends how long it is but yeah he will probably get stripped if it's a long suspension", he added.

The three men who were part of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested.

At the press conference, White indicated that McGregor refused to press charges, so the individuals were released.

"The guys who jumped in will never fight here", said White in the conference. "We had two [security] meetings tonight, one of them two fights before the main event". Security took all the right precautions. "When you have such an awesome event that we've worked hard to build for several months, and it goes ideal ... this is not what we're about".

Khabib's father Abdulnamap Nurmagomedov has spoken out against his son's actions following the brawl that ensued during UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

Nurmagomedov issued an apology but remained defiant.

"Sorry to the Nevada athletic commission, sorry to Las Vegas. I win, and he say, 'Congratulations'". I'm a human being.

"Some people love that. but for me, it's a bad night".

Khabib took a jibe at McGregor, insisting that UFC is not about trash-talking but it is a "respect" sport.

"I told you guys, not only him, his whole team, they're tap machine".
