Sure, Khabib Nurmagomedov won UFC 229 this weekend when he submitted Conor McGregor at 3:03 of the fourth round with rear-naked choke on Saturday night, but moments later he did lose something else.
Because what was a brilliantly contested lightweight title fight between Nurmagomedov and McGregor was marred moments later when Nurmagomedov jumped out of the Octagon and charged at McGregor's jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis—who is also aBellator welterweight fighter.
Then while he was doing that, two other members of his team jumped intothe Octagon and began attacking McGregor who was still, as you can imagine, recovering from being choked out.
After cops and security intervened to separate the respective—well, disrespected, actually—melees, three members of Nurmagomedov's team were arrested.
Nurmagomedov is now 27-0 while McGregor falls to 21-4 but McGregor should get style points for what he did after the fight—decline to press charges on the suckers who punched him.
He also tweeted out congrats to his opponents saying “Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch.”
Still, UFC Pres Dana White told ESPN that it was "a very bad night"for the UFC and that Nurmagomedov could earn a suspension.
