UFC 229: Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor Results

While Geordie is a diehard McGregor fan, he respected Khabib's performance in the octagon, feeling that he put on a "world-class performance" at UFC 229.

Tukhugov (18-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) allegedly was involved in the brawl following Khabib Nurmagomedov's (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC) submission win over Conor McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in the UFC 229 main event.

UFC President Dana White said after the fight that three of Khabib's coaching team were arrested and taken to jail.

McGregor did well defending Khabib's attempts to get him to the floor in the first minute and then the Russian started showing off his apparelled grappling skills completely overpowering his opponent.

Did McGregor throw the first punch?

"The way that works is Conor is one of the guys who was attacked".

Angry fans of the two fighters brawled in the concourses of the arena as police and security staff struggled to maintain any semblance of order, and violent scuffles continued into the night around the Las Vegas strip.

"Khabib said it to Herb Dean, he said that Conor did it three times". "I don't know what to say right now, I'm disgusted". "This is not my best side", he said.

The bad blood between McGregor and Nurmagomedov had been bubbling for months and became personal when families were dragged into the pre-fight trash talk. "What about this...?" Nurmagomedov asked during the press conference.

"He talk about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about my father, he come to Brooklyn and he broke bus, he nearly killed a couple people - what about this?" he asked reporters. However, Khabib took the ground the canvas with his grappling skills taking the full mount position, grounding and pounding his opponent until he moved into a rear-naked choke, forcing McGregor to tap out and concede to his more powerful Russian opponent, proving to the UFC that he is the undisputed Lightweight Champion.
