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 has forced back himself before being pulled from the scene.
However, according to Dana White, the stunt that Khabib pulled after the fight may draw a lengthy suspension from Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
“The Nevada State Athletic Commission is going to hand out some sort of fine or suspension and after that, we’ll see,” White said after the fight (transcribed by Forbes). “If he gets suspended, it depends on how long his suspension is and yeah, he’s probably going to get stripped if it’s a long suspension.”
Although, Khabib Nurmagomedov was quick to apologize for his action during the post-fight press conference.
“First of all I want to say sorry to the athletic commission. This is my bad side. He talk about my religion, he talk about my country, he talk about father, he come to Brooklyn and he (attacked) bus.”
Meanwhile, it’s likely that Khabib’s teammates might be suspended by the UFC as hinted by Dana White.
