Khabib vs McGregor results, recap, and link wrap-up: ‘Eagle’ taps ‘Notorious,’ starts UFC 229 post-fight war

We knew UFC 229 was going to be crazy ... but perhaps not that crazy.

Khabib Nurmagomedov improved his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) record to 27-0 with a fourth-round submission win over Conor McGregor in last Saturday night’s (Oct. 6, 2018) headliner inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Their championship bout capped off months of back-and-forth jibber-jabber that dragged both “The Eagle” and “Notorious” through the mud, which unfortunately boiled over after the pay-per-view (PPV) event and led to a massive post-fight melee.

Arrests were made, fighters were cut, people were disgusted ... it was bananas.

Elsewhere on the card, former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson reestablished his place among the 155-pound elite by stopping Anthony Pettis in the co-main event, a wild bang-a-thon that covered the canvas in blood.

If you happened to miss last Saturday night’s championship showdown or the wall-to-wall coverage we brought you, the fickle fight fan, right here at, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a complete UFC 229 link wrap-up.
