Conor McGregor has spoken out following his UFC loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The 30-year-old was defeated by the Russian fighter during his first UFC fight since 2016, but the Crumlin native was not disheartened by the loss.
The father-of-one has already asked for a rematch against Khabib as he has taken to Twitter to break his silence following the fight.
Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch.

“Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch,” Conor told fans.
The MMA star’s tweet comes after an extremely eventful night as him and his team were attacked by Khabib and his entourage immediately after the fight finished.
UFC President, Dana White, revealed that three members of the Russian fighter’s team were arrested, but were later released as Conor refused to press charges against them.
Although Conor did not take part in the press conference following the fight, Khabib made a short appearance and stated that the attack occurred because Conor “talked about my religion, my country, my father.”

Conor also shared a photo of himself in the octagon on Instagram and told fans: “I’ll be back.”
Meanwhile, Dana White stated that Khabib’s payment for the fight has been withheld by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and that he could be stripped of his UFC Lightweight Champion title.
