Police moved in to break up the scraps but nobody involved wished to press charges.

A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department statement read: "LVMPD officers assisted with breaking up several small fights that took place after Saturday night's UFC main event in Las Vegas.

"After all parties were separated, no one involved wished to press charges and no arrests occurred."

McGregor was making his UFC return after two years out but tapped out in the fourth round.

Following his win, Khabib - brutally taunted by McGregor in the build-up - leapt out of the cage and hurled himself at the Irishman's team.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission will file formal complaints against both men for their actions.

Chairman Anthony Marnell told ESPN: "We will be filing against Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

"Because we withheld one purse, we will have to move expeditiously to a complaint and hearing.

"We have held 100 percent of one of the fighter's money, so the goal is to get the complaints out in the next 24 to 48 hours."

UFC president Dana White revealed Khabib faces losing ALL of his £1.5m purse.

He said: "They took his whole purse right now and they're talking about keeping his purse.

“I do not think that that should happen. You should not be able to keep his whole purse.

“I think they should take a quarter of a million dollars from him.

“He absolutely keeps his title. He’s going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six month suspension.”
