Pinoy fans get rowdy over Khabib vs McGregor fiasco
Khabib Nurmagomedov shook the world for the wrong reason.
The Russian fighter was able to defend his belt by submitting his opponent Connor McGregor at 3:03 of the fourth via rear-choke hold.
However things took an ugly turn at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas when Nurmagomedov instigated a post-match brawl when he jumped out of an octagon and attacked Bellator’s Dillon Danis, who also happened to train with the Irish MMA star.
Shockingly, Nurmagomedov’s team began to sneak inside the octagon and drubbed McGregor while still recovering from a grueling loss.

Filipino fans cannot help but to react to the controversial aftermath.
Conor McGregor has a big mouth and all, but what Khabib Nurmagomedov and his teammates did after the match is a whole new low level of disgusting personal crap. Such an embarrassment for athletes. Not even Floyd Mayweather went that low.

Khabib and his team were unprofessional for doing all that post-fight but let's not forget Conor also did a lot of damage with that dolly incident. These guys fought fire with fire, and I believe this is far from over

This is the monster the UFC created and profited from. Connor with the low blow insults. Connor with the dolly through the bus. Now Connor, and the company, pissed off someone who took it all personally and made a tragic, disgraceful mistake of his own. No one wins.

Just kidding, this post-match fiasco between McGregor and Khabib is really a bad PR. Not even a "bad publicity is still a publicity" angle will save them. Everyone loses.

According to UFC president Dana White, three of Nurmagomedov’s men were arrested and detained after the rumble.
