UFC chief Dana White confirmed later that three of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested and taken to jail but were released later because McGregor refused to press charges.
He's also going to be punished by his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who was not present in Las Vegas after being denied a visa.
"The Eagle" had just defended his lightweight title against Conor McGregor by forcing the Irishman to submit to a neck crank in the fourth round of what was largely agreed to be the biggest fight in UFC history.
