WATCH: New footage of the crazy scenes which unfolded at the end of McGregor/Khabib

Dana White’s words said it all. This is mad.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has retained his UFC lightweight title after forcing Conor McGregor to tap out in the fourth round following a commanding win over the Dubliner.

This being said, the main story following the main event of UFC 229 were the scenes that unfolded at the end of the fight as Khabib jumped into the crowd and made a beeline for Dillon Danis – McGregor’s teammate.

Nurmagomedov was excellent throughout the fight but the scenes which we saw at the end  were extremely unsavoury – granted, it’s not something that we’ve never seen before – but the personal animosity between both men really did spill over.

In fact, during the post-fight chat, Joe Rogan was more concerned about whether or not Khabib could now travel now to the US to defend his title because the authorities could become involved.

Of course, McGregor did something similar against Jose Aldo but as you can see in the footage below, this was something else.

After enduring four gruelling rounds and being forced to tap out, the fact that McGregor was sucker punched by some of Khabib’s team was incredible and we wait to see what action – if any – is taken.

In the immediate aftermath of the fight, the man from Dagestan asked for his belt and Dana White said “If i put this belt on you, people are gonna get hurt”

Nurmagomedov was escorted out of the arena by police as the crowd boos.
