Immediately after Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor at UFC 229, he jumped the cage onto Bellator welterweight Dillon Danis.

Dillon Danis was cornering his teammate Conor McGregor. Danis connected with a couple of blows and Khabib has forced back himself before being pulled from the scene by the security team present at the T-Mobile Arena.

Now Danis has opened up about the incident in an interview with The Schmo.

No, he didn’t connect,” Danis said. “You know what’s funny when he jumped over the thing, and he had his feet and his arms up, so like, he didn’t really know what he was going to hit me with. So I was like, am I going to get kicked right now or punched? I kind of just blocked then I hit him with a right hand, and then I remember him coming forward, and I was uppercutting him, and then he was just trying to run away, and I was trying to grab his head.

It was just whole mayhem and then everybody was getting punched, and cops were going all over the place, and … he didn’t touch me at all. I remember hitting him with a good amount of shots, and then I just remember him trying to pull away and run away from me, and I was trying to cup his head and uppercut him. But it was mayhem. Everything happened so fast.” (H/T – MMA Junkie)
