Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated the former lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, in a sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the 6th of October. He managed to make the Irish UFC star tap out to an extremely tight neck crank choke during the final moments of round number four.
Just after his winning moments, Khabib then leaped out of the Octagon and jumped towards McGregor’s team, where a street fight then began involving members of both parties.
It took some time for things to handle and to make the situation to normal mode, police then got involved and escorted the two UFC stars out of the Arena.
It was well known and expected the extreme fight between the two men. As before the fight Khabib told a press conference on Thursday: “He has to kill me to stop me. How do I come here if I don’t believe in myself? I’m a UFC champion, undefeated and undisputed.
“You have to believe. When you fight at high level, you have to believe you’re the champion and nobody can beat you.”
After his victorious run in UFC by defeating Conor in a one sided contest, Khabib made some suspense in WWE universe and Brock Lesnar in his tweet.

Dana White comments on Khabib’s fine
According to sportskeeda, In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, UFC president Dana White said that Khabib:
“They took his whole purse right now and they’re talking about keeping his purse – I do not think that should happen, you should not be able to keep his whole purse. I think they should take ($250,000) from him, (He) absolutely keeps his title. And he’s going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six months suspension.”
