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.
Dillon 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, after the fight, he apologized for his action at the post-fight press conference and said that his father is going to ‘smash’ him.
Nurmagomedov’s father tells Russian media, however, that the punishment he has in store for his son when he returns home will be “tougher” (via Bloody Elbow):
“I will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC’s. I warned him. For me, discipline comes first. You do whatever you want in the Octagon, [but] outside — this is the border of civilians, where there are children, women, strangers.”
“My team has always been famous for discipline,” he said.
Khabib probably deserves it, considering he managed to present himself as a gentleman throughout the press conference, but he blew it all and everything he believed in the minute he was involved in a brawl.
