Pros React To Crazy Brawl After Khabib Scores A Win Over Conor Mcgregor

The biggest fight in the UFC history is in the books, as division’s champion Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor via neck crank to retain the gold last night (Sat., Oct. 6, 2018) in the main headliner of UFC 229 which went down inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Immediately after the fight, all hell loose broke when Khabib leaped over the cage and started a brawl with McGregor’s teammate and coach Dillon Danis. Thus two of Khabib’s teammate jumped inside the Octagon and sucker punched McGregor from behind. Police immediately involved and separated both camps teammates.

UFC president Dana white express his disgust at Mcgregor vs. Khabib post-fight brawl, even Khabib’s teammates were arrested for shortly later released when Conor Mcgregor refuse to do the press charges against them.

“A LOT OF BAD STUFF THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED,” WHITE SAID OF THE BRAWL. “KHABIB JUMPED OVER THE CAGE GOING AFTER ONE OF CONOR’S GUYS, WHO I GUESS WAS TALKING TRASH TO HIM, AND ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY RIGHT NOW. I’M JUST DISGUSTED AND SICK OVER IT.”

Dana White explained why he didn’t put the belt on Khabib’s with a fear of fans threw trash and other stuff at him as he leaves the arena.

“I KNEW THAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN,” HE SAID. “I SAID, ‘IF WE PUT THE BELT ON HIM IN THE OCTAGON, THEY’RE GONNA BE THROWING WHATEVER THEY GOT DOWN INTO THE OCTAGON. SO I SAID, ‘LET’S JUST TRY TO GET HIM OUT OF HERE WITHOUT ANY INCIDENT.’”

White said Khabib’s teammates released as Mcgregor refused to do the press charges against them.

“He didn’t care about the fight after. He was more concerned with the fight fight,” White said at the post-fight press conference (transcribed by Tim Bissell). “He said ‘listen man, I’m upset. I don’t give a shit about any of that, we don’t like each other.’

“You know he doesn’t like Khabib and the whole deal, but he didn’t press charges against him and the whole team. He doesn’t care about that. He cares that he lost the fight.”
