LAS VEGAS — Khabib Nurmagomedov still is undefeated after defeating Conor McGregor via submission in the fourth round of UFC 229’s main event.
But the culmination of UFC 229 didn’t come with Khabib wearing the UFC lightweight belt around his waist. Instead, chaos ensued as members of both Khabib’s and McGregor’s teams started brawling following the fight.
After Nurmagomedov forced McGregor to tap out with under two minutes left in the fourth round, he proceeded to throw his mouthguard toward what appeared to be members of McGregor’s team. A brawl ensued afterwards as Nurmagomedov leaped outside of the octagon and started throwing punches at members of McGregor’s team.
McGregor then was attacked by members of Khabib’s team. After the dust settled, both fighters were escorted outside of the octagon without a belt presentation.

Nurmagomedov’s victory keeps his undefeated record intact at 27-0. McGregor suffers his second career UFC loss and his first since losing to Nate Diaz at UFC 196.
