“From what I heard was that [Khabib Nurmagomedov] after the fight, [Conor] McGregor‘s opponent jumped out the ring and was fighting people in the crowd. So…very unprofessional.
It’s going to be a huge fine, pretty sure. Because with my fight, with Zab Judah, it was a crazy melee in the ring and there was a huge penalty, huge fine. If I’m not mistaken, seven figures. Not to me, but could have been to Zab Judah or my uncle Roger or even Leonard Ellerbe. So I know with a guy jumpin’ out the cage into the audience and fightin’ different people, the fine is going to be crazy.”
As the score had seemingly been settled in the Octagon at UFC 229, it really wasn’t as evidenced very shortly after the headliner’s conclusion.
We finally got to see what would happen when two of MMA’s greatest grapplers and strikers met face to face. And as history has shown, it was the grappler who had his way once again.
Lightweight UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov dominated former champion Conor McGregor with his wrestling on route to a fourth-round submission victory by neck crank.
All hell would break loose immediately after as the champion took to the crowd to go after one of McGregor’s cornermen, Dillon Danis.
Having his 2 million dollar fight purse still currently in custody of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Nurmagomedov is also expected to be slapped with a fine and suspension. As is McGregor.
However, the more severe of the two is obviously expected for Nurmagomedov as predicts boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather. Who happens to be pretty familiar with the NSAC himself.
We’re expected to find out what the punishments will be on October 24. So until then, everything else is just speculation.
