UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has revealed that he does not have any regret about sparking a mass brawl after defeating Conor McGregor at UFC 229, as revealed on the Independent.

Khabib dominated McGregor in October and secured a victory by submission before the Russian leapt over the cage and started a brawl with McGregor’s team.

Khabib has been fined $500,000 and given a lengthy nine-month suspension from the sport, whilst McGregor received a $50,000 fine and a six-month ban.

Khabib said:

I’ve had many situations in my life that I regret, you can’t turn back time. 

But this is not on the list of things I regret. If the situation happened again 100 times, I would do the same thing 100 times.

I don’t have a gram of regret about my actions. Some people liked it, some people didn’t. It makes no difference. I did what I wanted to do. 

Both bans have been backdated to 7th October, which is when the incident took place. 

Do you want to see a rematch between Khabib and McGregor?
