NUR­MAGOME­DOV SPARKS BRAWL

DRUM - - Sportsbuzz -

It was one of the worst sport­ing mo­ments yet recorded. Rus­sian mixed mar­tial artist KHABIB NUR­MAGOME­DOV de­feated

CONOR MCGRE­GOR in the fourth round of their UFC light­weight ti­tle fight. But what fol­lowed – a brawl which led to three ar­rests – shocked the world.

Khabib im­me­di­ately jumped over the top of the oc­tagon af­ter McGre­gor tapped out, hurtling to­wards the Ir­ish­man’s train­ing part­ner, Dil­lon Da­nis.

McGre­gor was mean­while at­tacked by at least two mem­bers of Khabib’s team, who took ad­van­tage of the chaos.

McGre­gor chose not to press charges. Khabib’s purse will be with­held pend­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Ne­vada Ath­letic Com­mis­sion.
