VIDEO: LVMPD Wins UFC 229, 3 Arrests Made As Fighters Brawl After McGregor Loss

Las Vegas Metro PD arrested three people involved in the post-match altercation.

Las Vegas, NV - Three arrests were made at UFC 229 after Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor before jumping out of the octagon to start a massive brawl (video of the altercation below.)

UFC president Dana White said that three of Khabib's people were arrested by Las Vegas Metro PD.

"Khabib jumped over the cage going after Conor's guy who was talking trash to him and all hell broke loose," White said in an interview with Fox Sports 1.

"Three of Khabib's guys have been arrested and are on the way to jail now," White added.

Reporter Mike Bohn later tweeted that the victims refused to press charges, so the arrestees were released.

After the fight, Khabib said that Russian President Putin called him to congratulate him. Although, it's not clear if Khabib may be stripped of his title due to the altercation.

@Hi_estComnDenomn 17 hrs @John.Brown talk, talk, talk. it's kinda what guys like you do once they realize there's nothing they can really do.

your bravery comes from the internet. you wouldn't say any of the shit you say in person. you're the human equivalent of a chihuahua; all bark, absolutely no bite.

Hope you're proud!

Another barbaric "sport" that takes advantage of people with minimal education and I.Q.'s. And that's just the observers.

This is not sport. Shame on all involved. Great example for our youth.

This article fails to mention that McGregor used racial slurs (calling Khabib 'Dagestani rat'), openly mocked his religion and his family, and slung a dolly into Khabib's tour bus, almost blinding someone due to shards of glass in their eye. Dana White (owner, UFC) used that footage as promo material for this fight. UFC holds the blame for this by continually letting McGregor be as loud-mouthed and vile as he can be, because it makes money.

Khabib kept his cool the whole press run, then whooped Conor's ass from top to bottom for 4 rounds straight, eventually making him tap. But he wasn't done.

I'm not saying Khabib's actions were right, but I am saying I fully understand and McGregor deserved it.
