UFC 229: Khabib Nurmagomedov Taps Out Conor McGregor, Brawl Erupts Afterwards
By FCF Staff
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s wrestling and top game proved to be too much for Conor McGregor as many people expected would be the case, but the lightweight champ’s win was marred by a post-fight brawl.
Nurmagomedov took McGregor down yet again in round four, and eventually worked his way into a fight ending, neck crank. After the win, however, Nurmagomedov jumped the cage and went towards McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis.
A brawl ensued, and as security intervened outside of the cage, an apparent teammate of Nurmagomedov jumped the Octagon and attacked McGregor. Both McGregor and Nurmagomedov were eventually rushed out of the arena by security.
