McGregor was making his comeback to mixed martial arts after a near two-year hiatus but the former two-weight champion submitted to his rival’s rear-naked choke midway through the fourth round in Las Vegas.
Nurmagomedov therefore retained his lightweight title but then threw his gumshield, mounted the cage and looked to attack someone from McGregor’s team.
A prone McGregor, still sitting on the floor after his defeat, was apparently attacked by someone from Nurmagomedov’s camp as the bad blood that has been building up ahead of this fight came to a head.
IT’S OVER!! KHABIB TAPS MCGREGOR!!
