The biggest fight in the history of UFC took place earlier this month on Oct. 6 between Irish superstar Conor McGregor and Russian star Khabib Nurmagomedov.

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.

However, before the fight, Dillon Danis had said that he was helping Conor McGregor prepare for Khabib’s takedown skills. A few months back, Dillon appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show where he said:

It all started after Dillon mocked Ben Askren:

Askren almost immediately fired back mocking his wrestling skills:

Ben Askren was traded to UFC by ONE in return for Demetrious Johnson, he still hasn’t got a fight scheduled yet.
