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 then 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 by the security team present at the T-Mobile Arena. Few of Khabib’s teammates entered the cage and attacked Conor McGregor, for which they were arrested and are suffering a possible lifetime ban from UFC. Khabib had his purse withheld by Nevada commission which was around $2 Million.

The NAC chairman, Anthony Marnell III, said on Wednesday the suspensions will last until an investigation is complete, and the two fighters are required to attend a 10 December disciplinary hearing in Las Vegas. Marnell added that fines and punishment up to a lifetime ban could be considered.

The five-member board voted unanimously on the suspensions and the release of $1m of the $2m withheld from Nurmagomedov immediately after the 6 October brawl at T-Mobile Arena.

Conor McGregor was however paid in full.
