UFC president Dana White said that after the commission reviewed footage of the incident, executive director Bob Bennett released McGregor's money.
"I promise you this is not what a mixed martial arts event is normally like", White said. However, he climbed the octagon fence and attacked a person in the audience right after the fight, and teammates of his got involved in a fight with McGregor inside the octagon.
He went on to complain bitterly about McGregor's behaviour in the lead-up to the fight that exacerbated the bad blood between the two teams.
His last fight in Dublin at 3Arena broke the venue's decibel level record, knocking out Diego Brandão in July 2014 to win the performance of the night.

Tukhugov posted a video bragging about attacking McGregor, who refused to press charges after several arrests were made in Las Vegas.
"I saw one of Conor's guys yelling at Khabib, Khabib ran and jumped over the octagon, went after him".
Speaking to Niall McGrath about Price's comments on McGregor, he said: "In your fight career, everyone's got to do what's best for them, you know". McGregor continued with his usual trash-talking but Khabib did well to avoid confrontations during the press conferences and weigh-ins. "Looking forward to the rematch".
"He talked about my country, he talked about my father". McGregor appeared to be referring to a book written several years ago which claimed that Abdelaziz once worked as an informant for the NYPD and Federal Bureau of Investigation among US Muslims in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. They've been saying mean things for 18 years in the UFC. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
