But as you can see in the video above, McGregor appeared to provoke the attack by throwing the first punch.

The two other men saw the punch and made a decision to join the melee.

UFC President Dana White said "these guys are in big trouble" and "it's going to be ugly", after Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor were involved in the scuffle.

Mr White confirmed that the Nevada State Athletic Commission had seized footage of the bout known as UFC229, withheld Nurmagomedov's purse but released McGregor's $4.6 million purse after determining his side had done nothing wrong in the melee and launched an investigation.

Dillon Danis, McGregor's Jiu-Jitsu coach, was the target of Nurmagomedov's attack and nobody had a better viewpoint on the altercation than Rogan, who shouted "no, no, no" when he saw Nurmagomedov scale the fence. Conor refused to press charges. "I thought he was going to get to the top of the cage and say "F You" or something but when he went over the top and then into the crowd, I thought "I can't believe this is happening".

The bad blood between McGregor and Nurmagomedov had been bubbling for months and became personal when families were dragged into the pre-fight trash talk.

"I don't understand how people can talk about I jump on the cage".

It will also be intriguing to find out what he believes McGregor's next move should be, and whether he believes a rematch with Khabib is a good idea.

The 30-year-old from Dagestan had mauled former two-weight champion McGregor before the Irishman tapped out to a rear naked choke hold in the fourth round, but that was quickly forgotten in the following melee. Police eventually separated the dueling brawls, and both McGregor and Khabib were escorted out of the Las Vegas arena.

White said that it would be now up to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to decide if Nurmagomedov would face further sanctions.
