Khabib Nurmagomedov is going back to what he knows and that’s having those involved in the brawl squad at his side.
The brawl happened once the UFC lightweight champion submitted Conor McGregor in the UFC 229 headliner. Following the main event fight, Khabib went flying out of the Octagon.
He got into a brawl with some of McGregor’s teammates, mainly training partner Dillon Danis. There were many people trying to calm down the situation at the UFC 229 pay-per-view event. There were also some cornermen involved in the brawl.
