Khabib Nurmagomedov (27-0) successfully defended his UFC lightweight championship against Conor McGregor (21-4) via fourth-round submission in the main event of UFC 229 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The Eagle after his submission win, jumped through the cage and launching himself into the crowd. His intended target was Dillon Danis.
Danis sprung back and started to wade into Nurmagomedov. He connected with a couple of blows and Khabib was forced back himself before being pulled from the scene.

For all thinking i talked shit about @TeamKhabib You are so wrong. I was so proud of his performance, I just felt he let himself down afterwards. If you listen properly to what I said, the full show I have him lots of respect. He was outstanding, what happened after was not.
