Raw video: Khabib leaps into UFC 229 crowd, attacks Dillon Danis after Conor McGregor fight

There’s really no easy way to say this, so I’ll just say it: All fucking hell broke loose after the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor title fight, which took place at UFC 229 last night (Sat., Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

That’s because “The Eagle” — who submitted “Notorious” in the fourth frame of their 155-pound showdown — jumped over the fence and right into the crowd to attack Dillon Danis, McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach.

Now we have some of the raw footage.

Danis was one of many SBG Ireland affiliates to slam Nurmagomedov in the media leading up to UFC 229. Partly because he was McGregor’s opponent, but mostly because “The Eagle” clowned teammate Artem Lobov ahead of UFC 223, which led to the now-infamous bus incident in Brooklyn.

Elsewhere in the cage, “Notorious” was jumped by two of Nurmagomedov’s teammates, who were later arrested by Las Vegas police. Promotion president, Dana White, also issued them a lifetime ban from UFC competition.
