Las Vegas, NV – Three arrests were made at UFC 229 after Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor before jumping out of the octagon to start a massive brawl (video of the altercation below.)
UFC president Dana White said that three of Khabib’s people were arrested by Las Vegas Metro PD.
“Khabib jumped over the cage going after Conor’s guy who was talking trash to him and all hell broke loose,” White said in an interview with Fox Sports 1.
“Three of Khabib’s guys have been arrested and are on the way to jail now,” White added.
Reporter Mike Bohn later tweeted that the victims refused to press charges, so the arrestees were released.
After the fight, Khabib said that Russian President Putin called him to congratulate him. Although, it’s not clear if Khabib may be stripped of his title due to the altercation.
