“Oh No..” were the only words that the normally outspoken UFC commentator Joe Rogan could find as he and the world watched Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov launch himself out of the octagon and at a crowd member, intending to fight.

At the most recent UFC event, Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully defended his championship against MMA icon and former champion Conor McGregor.

That isn’t all he did, though.

After winning the fight in the 4th round via submission, Nurmagomedov proceeded to leap from the ring and into the crowd, aiming to then fight McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach, who reportedly hurled insults at the champion’s wife, children, and religion. The two were separated by security and police.

Nurmagomedov isn’t the only instigator in this incident. Members of his camp(fellow UFC fighters) also jumped into the octagon, throwing punches at an exhausted McGregor. They were also eventually separated by police.

By launching himself into the crowd the way he did, Nurmagomedov nearly incited a riot amongst the audience members.

In a rushed post-fight conference, Nurmagomedov, when questioned about his actions, stated “[McGregor] talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father, he came to Brooklyn and broke [into] a bus, he almost killed a couple people”. Nurmagomedov was referencing an event that occured a couple years ago, during which McGregor through a chair through a bus window, in an attempt to get Nurmagomedov to exit the bus. McGregor missed Nurmagomedov, injured a couple other people in the process, and was nearly charged with assault.

McGregor settled outside of court on assault charges for the earlier scene. Nurmagomedov may be forced to forfeit his belt for this one.

This event, which just happened to occur after the most viewed fight in UFC history, is an indelible stain on the already controversial UFC’s history.
