On October 6, T-Mobile Arena and the UFC hosted a highly anticipated fight, UFC 229, that involved the notorious Conor McGregor and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Nurmagomedov was the victor after four rounds by submission in a near-naked chokehold. Building up to the fight, McGregor, by no surprise at all, kept the trash talk at a McGregor level. After the match between the two dominate UFC figures, tempers boiled over outside and inside of the octagon. Both McGregor and Nurmagomedov made weight for the fight.

The brawl after the match

Almost immediately after the match, after Nurmagomedov sealed victory over McGregor, the lightweight champion noticed someone from McGregor's team talking at him from outside the octagon. The person talking to him was Dillon Danis, McGregor's training partner.

TMZ Sports reports that a ringside fan said that McGregor's teammate shouted a religious slur toward Nurmagomedov, sometime between the second and third round of the match.

Eventually, this led Nurmagomedov to hop the octagon's fence and attack Danis on the arena ground, and McGregor's team to climb into the ring and attack Nurmagomedov's team.

It has been reported by UFC contender Brian Ortega that Danis left the brawl concussed and bruised.

Danis also later denied ever using a religious slur to attack the lightweight champion.

"I have never and would never denigrate anyone's religion," according to The Sun.

Nevertheless, both McGregor and Nurmagomedov have been suspended at least 10 days for their roles in the brawl by the Nevada Athletic Commission while they investigate the incident.

Nurmagomedov's Instagram post claims unfairness

Days after the fight The Eagle, as he has been nicknamed, took to Instagram to express his feeling directly to the UFC.

In the lengthy post, Nurmagomedov immediately questions the double standards of the UFC.

"Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people?

They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?"

For context, McGregor, back in April, attacked and damaged a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and other fighters of UFC 223. McGregor was later criminally charged for the attack, but ultimately still allowed to fight in the UFC.

During the brawl, a UFC fighter by the name of Zubaira Tukhugov jumped into the Octagon and threw a punch to McGregor from behind. President of the UFC Dana White said of Tukhugov that he will never fight in the UFC again.

For this, Nurmagomedov has threatened to quit the UFC and walk away from the money he earned from fighting McGregor.

The hearings for indefinite suspensions again McGregor and Nurmagomedov are set to be October 24.
