To say what took place after the UFC 229 fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov was unreal would be putting it lightly. New, unseen footage that surfaced from the brawl shows that everything that happened afterwards was crazier than originally thought. Take a look for yourself:
I mean, honestly, have we ever seen anything like this? I know I haven't. This is literally something that you'd find during a WWE match. The problem is, none of this was scripted and somebody could've seriously gotten hurt.
Not only did Khabib jump into the stands to go after McGregor's teammate, Dillion Danis, but people from the crowd started jumping into the octagon and attacking McGregor. Luckily, he was able to get away from the sucker punches from behind.

There is no place in this sport for this kind of action and the UFC took a major hit because it. How can you take this sport seriously and respect the fighters when they're acting like this? It's unacceptable.
With hearings set in place for the two fighters, this seems like only the beginning for what's about to come.
