It took 15 minutes of complete control before Khabib Nurmagomedov ended Conor McGregor with a brutal rear naked choke in the fourth round of their highly anticipated title fight at UFC 229. Khabib talked trash to Conor for three-plus rounds, he reclaimed a little bit of dignity by not getting utterly dismantled in the third, before the fight came to a fitting end.
“Total chaos,” UFC commentator Jon Anik said. “All hell has broken loose.”
Khabib Nurmagomedov attended the post-fight press conference for all of two minutes.
During his brief time speaking to the media, he questioned why so much is being made of his antics when McGregor talked badly about his father, his religion and attacked a bus at the UFC 223 media day.
He did, however, apologise to the Nevada State Athletic Commission and his fans for his actions, which could land him a lengthy suspension and a hefty fine.
