Arrests made after Khabib beats McGregor

Arrests made after Khabib beats McGregor

The post-fight meleé has gained so numerous headlines but the fourth round finish will rankle McGregor for a while yet.

Former lightweight champion McGregor then came under attack by two individuals who climbed into the octagon after what had been a dominant performance from the Russian.

"Conor could get lucky and land a good punch but when Khabib gets a hold of him, it's over", he said.

The victorious Khabib leapt over the fence and attacked Dillion Danis after the sanctioned fight, while McGregor fought off some of Khabib's teammates having just nearly been chocked out.

Geordie then stated that McGregor would have to beat Khabib in order to be seen as "the best fighter in the world" - which isn't looking likely, as Khabib faces potential suspension for his assault on McGregor's Jiu Jitsu coach following his victory.

"First of all, I want to say sorry to Athletic Commission, sorry to Vegas", Nurmagomedov said of the brawl after the UFC 229 fight. After McGregor tapped, referee Herb Dean had to restrain Nurmagomedov and push him away from McGregor.

This won't be subtle " advised SpaceX founder Elon Musk on his Twitter feed at midday Sunday. Shortly afterward SpaceX showed a shot of Falcon 9 , successfully landed on landing zone 4.

Police eventually separated the dueling brawls, and both McGregor and Khabib were escorted out of the Las Vegas arena.

U.S visa or not, we can definitely see Nurmagomedov and McGregor fighting again.

"The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled the footage from us and there's an investigation going on. What about this...?" Nurmagomedov asked during the press conference.

"I don't understand how people can talk about I jump on the cage".

After the chaos had subsided, White said he told Nurmagomedov he wouldn't put the lightweight, 155-pound championship belt around Nurmagomedov's waist in the Octagon out of fear that people would throw drinks and other objects at him, potentially hurting other people in the process.

Nurmagomedov, who defended his belt successfully for the first time, was livid at the end of the fight and demanded to be given his title.
