A huge brawl broke out after Khabib Nurmagomedov soundly defeated Conor McGregor in the fourth round of the UFC 229 title fight.
Khabib jumped the fence and went after McGregor's corner, while a random member of Khabib's team jumped into the Octagon to attack McGregor himself, who was still recovering from the loss. Nurmagomedov was responding to a taunt from the crowd by McGregor’s grappling coach Dillon Danis, according to News.com.au.
Three men have reportedly been arrested, according to UFC president Dana White.
White decided to skip the traditional ceremony of presenting Nurmagomedov with the belt and instead had him leave the cage. “If I put this belt on you, everyone’s going to start throwing shit into the Octagon,” he said.
He also revealed that McGregor was not hurt in a post-fight press conference. “He’s upset about the fight,” White told reporters. “Not about the fight after the fight.”
