Submission and chill: Khabib slips into thobe, orders pizza, then watches Conor McGregor tap out (Video)

How did Khabib Nurmagomedov celebrate his UFC 229 win over Conor McGregor?

Dagestan’s No. 1 “Eagle” slipped into his thobe, ordered a pizza, then fired up the replay of his fourth-round submission victory over ‘Notorious” (watch it), which took place last Sat. night (Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I guess that smashing he was expecting from his father will have to be put on hold while he waits for his paycheck to be released from Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which may explain why the stateside Nurmagomedov had to settle for that soggy-ass pie.

The reigning UFC lightweight champion is in hot water after jumping over the cage at UFC 229 and slugging it out with Dillon Danis (video), an emotional reaction to a protracted feud that may result in a disciplinary suspension, along with the surrendering of his strap.

That’s to be determined at a later date. For now, it appears Nurmagomedov is surrounded by his goon squad. After all, you never know when a band of Irish toughies is going to show up looking for revenge.
