Former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world and legend ’ Iron’ Mike Tyson stated his views on UFC 229. Mike Tyson said that the post-fight brawl at UFC 229 was crazier than his own fight riot.
UFC 229 witnessed an epic showdown where Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor in the most anticipated and undoubtedly the biggest fight in UFC. Khabib defended his Lightweight Championship for the first time and he won by making Conor McGregor tap out in the fourth round.
After McGregor tapped, Khabib threw his mouthguard toward the Conor’s team, climbed out of the cage and went after McGregor’s Jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis.
This led to a brawl and all hell went loose when 3 members of Khabib’s team jumped inside the octagon and attacked Conor McGregor who wasn’t anticipating such kind of act. All the security members then came and took out all the 3 members that attacked Conor.
‘Iron’ Mike Tyson expressed his views on the after fight brawl by a tweet. Remembering his own brawl after the infamous biting off Holyfield’s ear, the boxing legend tweeted,
“Watching the @TheNotoriousMMA vs @TeamKhabib fight. Unimaginable never thought it would go down like this. Crazier than my fight riot.”
