Khabib Nurmagomedov Defeats Conor McGregor But Fight Ends In Bedlam

Khabib Nurmagomedov has solidified himself as one of, if not the greatest of all time inside the Octagon with a dominant victory over Conor McGregor. 

Nurmagomedov improved his record to 27-0, in a fight which went the expected way as the Russian grappled his way to victory before making the Irishman tap via a rear naked choke.

However, the fight descended into chaos as Nurmagomedov jumped the fence and started a fight with McGregor's cornerman Dillon Danis. 

It was an all-in from there as another member of Nurmagomedov's team jumped the cage and started unloading on McGregor.

 It was the ugly end to a fight billed as the 'biggest ever' in MMA history. 

Earlier, the co-main event between fellow Lightweights Tony Ferguson and Anthony Pettis was an absolute bloodbath, with both putting it all on the line.

 

It ended when Pettis was unable to continue, suffering from a broken hand - handing Ferguson his 11th-consecutive win.

This win is just as special, with the former Interim-Lightweight champion coming back from a career-threatening knee injury.
