Joe Rogan is consistently a capable and shrewd caller of contests in the Octogan, but as Conor McGregor tapped out while in the throes of a Khabib Nurmagomedov hold, his cry of "it's all over" could not have been more wrong. Rogan wasn't to know, but the drama of UFC 229 was just getting started.
In the aftermath of the bell, Nurmagomedov and his team went on a rampage and stormed through the T-Mobile Arena. While Khabib was busy scaling the cage and firing himself at Dillon Danis, his team took it upon themselves to attack McGregor who was struck from behind.

UFC President Dana White has confirmed that three people have been arrested for the incidents that took place while McGregor's coach John Kavanagh said the ending was a "shame."
Another historical night. Amazing atmosphere, technical fight with excitement all the way thru. All that makes MMA a great sport. Shame about the ending. On to the next one.
