The aftermath of the post-fight brawl at UFC 229 — which went down last Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada — is still going strong, as more video footage of the melee is surfacing.
The latest video angle gives fight fans a different look as to what exactly went down inside the Octagon between Conor McGregor and three of members of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s entourage.
See for yourself:
I’m sure the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) would like to get its hands on this footage.
The near-riot exploded when “The Eagle” soared out of the Octagon and attacked Dillon Danis seconds after submitting “Notorious” in the fourth round. After security and police officers defused the situation the best they could, three men were then seen swinging on McGregor inside the Octagon.
A previous video angle showed Conor taking a swing at one of Khabib’s teammates who was in the process of jumping the cage, as well, prompting all hell to break loose inside the eight-sided cage. The assailants were arrested and subsequently released after Conor refused to press charges. Still, NSAC is investigating them, which means they are not out of the legal woods just yet.
As for Khabib, he will not be stripped of his title but faces a monetary fine and suspension from NSAC. As for Conor, he, too will have a hearing in “Sin City” to answer for his actions. At least he got his $3 million check from the fight, unlike Khabib.
