Khabib Nurmagomedov made Conor McGregor tap out to a rear-naked choke in the fourth round of the UFC 229 main event to retain the UFC lightweight championship.

After the fight, all hell broke loose and Nurmagomedov jumped the cage to attack members of McGregor’s team. More details of the aftermath will be available shortly.

UFC President Dana White even refused to hand Nurmagomedov his title belt after the fight, telling Khabib: “If I put this belt on you here, people are gonna start throwing shit into the Octagon. Someone else is gonna get hurt.”
