UFC 229 Results: Khabib Nurmagomedov Taps Out Conor McGregor, Then Starts Brawl in Audience

If you had money on lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov dominating former champ Conor McGregor via grappling in the main event of UFC 229, congrats, you won some cash.

If you had money on Khabib spitting on McGregor after the Irishman tapped out. well, congrats, you won even more money.

If you predicted that Khabib would jump the cage and attack McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis, and that one of Khabib’s teammates would jump INTO the Octagon and suckerpunch Conor… you’re a liar.

Folks, this fight was exciting and thrilling and fun to watch, with Nurmagomedov even rocking McGregor on the feet once, and McGregor almost taking control with his standup in Round 3. But once the champ got the ex-champ down in Round 4, the tapout via rear naked choke was inevitable.

And then Khabib jumped the fence and started a brawl in the audience… pure craziness.

It was so bad that security had to flood the cage to protect McGregor. Dana White had to tell Khabib that he couldn’t give him his belt in the cage, because it was certain that the audience would shower them with garbage. And when Khabib was escorted out by security, he was indeed showered with garbage anyway.

If you remember the brawl after that Strikeforce event, with Nick and Nate Diaz and crew scrapping against Jason Miller… this was worse.

Insanity. Pure insanity.
