Conor McGregor wants a rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov, following his defeat in Las Vegas at UFC 229.

The Irish fighter was second best throughout the fight and was forced to eventually tap-out in the fourth round Nurmagomedov was able to get the mount and lock in a rear-naked choke.

The result took Nurmagomedov to 27-0, the longest undefeated streak in MMA, but the outcome was soured by ugly scenes afterwards, when the Russian charged into the crowd and attacked a training partner of McGregor's.

There was also a melee in the octagon when members of Nurmagomedov team stormed in and threw punches at McGregor who had appeared to get involved in a fracas with on of the Russian's corner-men.

Police arrested three members of Nurmagomedov's team but as McGregor declined to press charges, all three men have been released, while the Nevada State Athletic Commission are currently withholding the lightweight champion's fight purse.

However despite all this, McGregor is eager for a rematch and on Twitter he said: "Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch."

Whether or not the Dubliner will be granted an automatic rematch remains to be seen but with reports of UFC pay-per-view records being broken by this bout, and McGregor earning $50million for the fight, there's plenty of financial incentive for everyone involved.
