UFC 229 did not turn out the way Conor McGregor’s fan wanted as “The Notorious” Conor McGregor tapped out to Khabib Nurmagomedov in the 4th round.
But this fight will not only be remembered as McGregor’s loss but also for what happened after the fight. As right after the fight, Khabib threw his gum shield toward Conor McGregor’s Jiu-jitsu coach and jumped out of the cage and attacked him. Chaos happened inside the octagon as well when 3 members of Khabib’s team entered the octagon and attacked Conor.
Dana White later stated that 3 members of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s team that attacked Conor were arrested and released. Dana White said that McGregor told him he would not press charges against them and also added that Conor is sad about what happened in the fight but not what happened after it.
Dana White also said that NSAC (Nevada State Athletic Commission) is withholding Khabib’s paycheck due to the incident. But Conor McGregor was paid after the athletic commission reviewed tape of the whole incident. McGregor was also interviewed before athletic commission concluded that there was no reason to withhold his paycheck.
