Khabib Nurmagomedov won one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history on Saturday when he defeated Conor McGregor to defend the lightweight title in the UFC 229 headliner. Unfortunately it was overshadowed by post-fight chaos.
Nurmagomedov (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC) stayed perfect in his remarkable MMA career when he spoiled McGregor’s (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) return to the octagon with a fourth-round victory in the pay-per-view main event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. With the performance, “The Eagle” further erased any doubt he’s the top 155-pound fighter in the world. Afterward, though, he left a stain on the sport by jumping the cage and kick off a crazy series of events.
