Dagestan explodes with delight after Khabib defeats McGregor at

Russian 155lb king Nurmagomedov's dominant victory cemented his place at the top of the UFC lightweight tree - brutally silencing talk of a potential dethroning by the returning McGregor.

McGregor also mentioned the name of former middleweight king Anderson Silva before his fight with Nurmagomedov - hailing him as a "legend" of the game and touting the notion that he would be interested in taking on the Brazilian.

Sportsbook Bovada have released odds on McGregor's next fight in the UFC and the rematch with "The Eagle" is considered the favourite at -155 (13/20) while rematches against Nate Diaz and Jose Aldo have been given odds of +130 (13/10) and +900 (9/1) respectively.

The 30-year-old tapped out midway through the fourth round against the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov, who then vaulted the cage and attacked someone from McGregor's camp, while the Irishman was set upon by at least two men who entered the octagon.

By adding the words "the war goes on", McGregor, who had a black eye in the photograph that accompanied the post, is heavily implying that this rivalry is not over. "He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father", he said in the post-fight conference, without answering any questions before leaving.

U.S. considers sanction waivers on countries reducing imports of Iranian oil
Indian refiners imported around 10 million barrels of Iranian oil in October, and its November shipments are expected to be lower. On the one hand, Russia's oil sector stands to benefit economically by increasing its oil exports and thus increasing sales.


In April, McGregor was part of a group that attacked a bus as it sought out Nurmagomedov ahead of UFC 223.

During an appearance on ESPN First Take today, UFC President Dana White explained that McGregor has already called requesting a rematch. "We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next".

White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt". "The biggest night of the year, and I'm disgusted".

"We had so many police here, I don't even know if the city was safe tonight", White cracked.

It was, however, the events after the main event which got everyone talking. And the same thing for the other guy.
