The Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov was satisfied with defeating by submission to the Irishman Conor McGregor, but provoked a massive fight in the stands of the event held in Las Vegas. Nothing else to win, Nurmagomedov went of offensive form to the trainer of McGregor, jumped the glass fence the octagon and began a multitudinal fight. Meanwhile, in the ring, McGregor witnessed what was happening and several spectators jumped to assault him. The Thai fighter defended himself but received several punches from the spontaneous ones, which were quickly reduced by the security forces.
The fight was a major scandal and the Nevada Athletic Commission decided to freeze the delivery of the title to the Russian fighter until a full investigation of what happened. The fight will go down in history because the winner's belt was not awarded and there was no official photo.
In the press room, with calmer spirits Nurmagomedov apologized for what happened. With this victory, the Russian fighter remains unbeaten after 27 fights. The fight was expected more even, but McGregor could not counter the impetus of his rival, who dominated in all areas. In the fourth round, the Russian's superiority from the ground allowed him to put an end to the aspirations of the Irishman with a masterful guillotine and, for the time being, retains the lightweight title of UFC 229. We will have to wait for the next few hours to know the decision of the organization, but everything points to the rivalry between the two fighters will have a new episode in the medium term.
