UFC 229 was anticipated to be the most significant Event in UFC history.
According to UFC president Dana White, the numbers are reflecting that. A battle is what we got what and what we expected. A massive light-weight title main event between champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. It was what came afterward that caught us all off guard. Immediately following Nurmagomedov securing his very first title defense via fourth-round submission (neck crank), the new UFC Lightweight champ leapt the Octagon wall and assaulted McGregor’s cornerman and teammate, Bellator welterweight Dillon Danis.
With penalties soon to be handed out to all included, consisting of the fighters, White shared his ideas to TMZ on what type of punishment he believes his lightweight champ needs to get . By this point, all hell had broken out in an and out of the Octagon. “They took his entire fight purse today. They’re speaking about keeping his purse — I do not think that ought to take place. You must not have the ability to keep his whole purse. I think they should take a quarter of a million dollars($ 250,000) from him. He definitely keeps his title. My thoughts are he is going to get suspended, so perhaps you offer him a four to six months suspension.”
What Might Have Instigated The Ugly UFC 229 Post Fight Mixup?
Between Nurmagomedov and McGregor, this wasn’t the very first time that extracurricular activity was begun by one of the celebrations. The most compared situation to this has actually been the incident that truly began to snowball this entire rivalry which was McGregor’s bus attack throughout UFC 223 fight week in April. A scenario that White thinks can’t compare to this one. “It’s various scenarios, you men. This wasn’t at an occasion. This was in the bowels of the Barclays Center, it was a totally random situation. [McGregor] was dealing with the state of New York and the cops.
In this thing, [Nurmagomedov] became part of something that was managed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. He was at an occasion with more people that have actually ever been at an occasion for a UFC occasion in Vegas. There were lots of fans there. It’s a much more random scenario. “When it comes to what’s next for the unbeaten champ, there is no clear answer yet. UFC boss Dana White has something in mind, perhaps a rematch? That would make more sense then setting up a fight with Tony Ferguson one would think? “I do not understand [who’s next for him] We need to see how this stuff plays out with Khabib and what’s next. Tony Ferguson looked amazing that night, that fight was incredible. We’ll see what happens.”
