Twitter reacts to Khabib submitting McGregor, post-fight brawl at UFC 229

The biggest fight in mixed martial arts (MMA) history is in the books, as Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor last night (Sat., Oct. 6, 2018) at UFC 229 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, to retain the UFC lightweight title.

After the fight, an all-out brawl ensued as Khabib jumped into the crowd and started a fist fight with McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis. Two other people jumped in the cage and sucker punched McGregor from behind. Police were called upon and the two sides were eventually subdued.

As the biggest event in UFC history, there were a lot of eyes on the main event and chaos after the fight itself. Luckily, Twitter was able to catch some of the reactions from around the MMA community.
