Chaos at UFC 229 After Khabib Taps Out Conor McGregor


Khabib Nurmagomedov may have cemented his place in history as the greatest UFC Lightweight Champion in history. He may also have ended his own MMA career. In the main event of UFC 229, Khabib mauled UFC‘s biggest star Conor McGregor and then forced McGregor to tap out in the fourth round. It was a brutal demonstration of Khabib’s greatness and superiority over the global phenomenon.

And then, everything went wrong.

Khabib got into a shouting match with McGregor’s cornermen, most notably McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach, Bellator fighter Dillon Danis. Khabib scaled and jumped the Octagon. Into the audience. And started to brawl with Danis.

Meanwhile, inside the cage, Khabib’s corner and training partners went after McGregor.

McGregor was escorted back to the locker room.

Khabib demanded UFC President Dana White put the title belt around his waist, the long standing tradition in UFC and now almost everywhere in MMA.

“If I put this belt on you, everybody’s going to start throwing shit into the Octagon,” White told Khabib. In other words, the evening was over. No title belt ceremony. No post-fight interview. And Khabib would be escorted from the Octagon back to his locker room.

The ramifications of this event are presently unknown. Dana White informed the media in the post-fight press conference that Khabib’s guaranteed money has been held up by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. McGregor refused to press charges on the three members of Khabib’s team that were arrested for their actions.

And yet, in some ways, this has only just begun.
