Connor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov headlined UFC 229 but even though what happened in the octagon was epic, the post fight brawl is getting all the attention.

Khabib and McGregor have made headlines for months with their angst for each other, but it all boiled over into a mess on Saturday night.

In the fourth round ,Nurmagomedov choked out McGregor to retain his belt and subsequently jumped the cage and began what would be a complete disaster for him and the UFC.

Some of Khabib's crew jumped into the ring and assaulted McGregor and others throughout the crowd.

Numagomedov made excuses after the fight during his press conference including pointing out McGregor talked trash about his country, father and religion.

I don't care what McGregor said, Khabib acted like words out of McGregor's mouth should equal physical assault after the fight was over.

That logic is irrational and flat out stupid.

I hope the Nevada Gaming Commission strips Nurmagomedov of his belt and bans him and his thugish crew for a long time.

The UFC needs more of Connor and less of Khabib and that is what I hope the fans get.
