The fall out continues from the ugly, post-fight brawl that took place after Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor at UFC 229, and recently Ronda Rousey weighed-in on the incident.

The former bantamweight champ was asked for her thoughts on the melee, while talking to TMZ Sports. Here is some of what Rousey had to say (quotes via MMA Mania):

”I think that Khabib jumping out of the Octagon was not as bad as throwing objects at a bus,” Rousey said. “Because my friend Rose Namajunas was on that bus. My friend, Michael Chiesa, missed his fight because [he got cut by the glass].”

”I think, if you’re gonna draw the line there, you should have drawn it before that. I just feel like there has to be equal treatment all the way across the board. I don’t think that anyone should get special treatment because they’re a bigger draw.”
