New Footage Emerges Showing McGregor's 'First Punch' At Khabib's Team

An alternative angle of the mass brawl that broke out after Conor McGregor's UFC 229 contest versus Khabib Nurmagomedov has emerged which appears to show the Irishman striking out at 'Team Khabib' first.

The drama occurred after McGregor had tapped out in the third round. Despite his victory, Nurmagomedov was visibly angry and ran over the Octogan fence towards Dillon Danis. As a still-recovering McGregor, the security team and Khabib's cornermen run after him, new footage shows a punch being thrown on top of the fence by McGregor.

McGregor was then attacked from behind, as another man jumped into the Octogan and unloaded several shots.

 

UFC President Dana White confirmed that McGregor had decided not to press charges and that the three men who had been arrested were released.

As for Nurmagomedov, the 30-year-old defended himself while speaking at the press conference.

What about him talking about my religion? He talked about my country, he talked about my father, he came to Brooklyn and broke a bus, almost killed a couple of people.

What about this? What about this shit? Why are people talking about how I jumped over the cage.
