Night talk: Mitch Harris opening comments, Monday 8th October 2018.

Tonight: Do you think the aftermath of UFC 229 was staged, considering how much Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will be paid for their rematch? 

One of the most hotly anticipated bouts in UFC history devolved into scenes of utter chaos in the weekend.

Khabib Nurmagomedov's convincing fourth-round submission win over Conor McGregor at UFC 229 was instantly tarnished as the Russian clashed with the Irishman's team in a wild brawl outside the Octagon, while his own team attacked McGregor inside it.

Also tonight: Do you agree with Mitch when he calls our country 'rip-off New Zealand'?

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says New Zealanders are being "fleeced" by fuel companies, and believes a new Bill will force the industry into greater transparency.

At a post-Cabinet press conference on Tuesday, she appeared visibly angry as she explained just how rapidly our petrol prices have risen.

"I am hugely concerned at the level of price consumers are currently paying at the pump for fuel," she told media.

In 2008, New Zealand had one of the lowest pre-tax fuel costs in the OECD. Ten years on, we now have the highest.
