In another, a man wearing a yellow T-shirt with an Irish shamrock on the back is seen in an altercation with two men before he and a friend are apparently attacked. Explaining his actions after the fight, Nurmagomedov , who is a Muslim, said: "This is not my best side. He talked about my religion, my country, my father. You cannot talk about religions and nations. This for me is very important," he added.

Newsflare - Showgirls fighting on Las Vegas Strip
I was originally planning on going downtown to watch the Pacquiao fight this weekend, but not sure if we'll be able to find a good bar there to watch it. Any suggestion for a good spot, either downtown or on the strip? Probably easier to stay home and see it on pay per view unless you really have to come to LV to see it.
