Fans Fight and Confront Police After Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight

UFC 229 ceremonial weigh-in UFC 229: Ferguson outworks Pettis in absolute war
Hannah Rogers | 08 October, 2018, 13:12

UFC 229 is set to begin at 8 p.m. ET with preliminary fights before the main card kicks into gear at 10 p.m. Khabib and McGregor should go on closer to midnight as one of the most anticipated fights in MMA history builds to a climax in Sin City.

The Ireland hero had little choice but to tap out - but Khabib's victory was marred by the violent scenes that followed.

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager Ali Abdelaziz has suggested Conor McGregor's pre-fight insults were behind the Russian's decision to climb out of the octagon and instigate a mass brawl following UFC 229 on Saturday.

De La Hoya's account seemed to blame McGregor fans for the incident, which was caused when Khabib targetted Dillon Danis in the crowd. "This is not my best side", he said.

"I don't understand how people can talk about I jump on the cage".

"He talked about my country, he talked about my father". He came to Brooklyn and went after my bus. this is a respect sport, not trash talking. However, speculation has already begun to mount over a potential rematch as the Irishman took to twitter with a simple message. "Looking forward to the rematch".

Police eventually separated the dueling brawls, and both McGregor and Khabib were escorted out of the Las Vegas arena.

"Unfortunately, he is going to be suspended for a period of time, which means that the belt would probably be stripped from him".

"I actually didn't allow [Nurmagomedov] to get the belt put on because I knew what was going to happen when we did it was people were going to throw whatever they had into the Octagon, so let's just get him out of here".

"Then we'll see number one contender Tony Ferguson face somebody else for the vacant title".
