Khabib Nurmagomedov forced Conor McGregor to tap out of their UFC 229 main event with a 4th round submission, but the stunning outcome was only the beginning of complete chaos. Immediately after the fight finished, the scene devolved into a post-fight riot when Khabib jumped out of the Octagon to attack UFC fighter, and McGregor teammate Dillon Danis, who was seated ringside talking trash.
In the midst of the insanity, someone, believed to be from Khabib’s team, jumped into the Octagon and connected with a vicious punch to McGregors head while he had his back turned. Once things cooled down somewhat, Dana White opted not to give Khabib the belts in the Octagon, for fear that a full scale riot would break out. This is completely nuts.

Here’s a view from the stands:
Here’s the brawl with Khabib jumping the fence and going after Danis. You’ll see somebody go after McGregor in the cage. This is bad. pic.twitter.com/IpOZiZy5vC
