Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor in the fourth round of their highly anticipated octagon war on Saturday, Oct. 6. In the live pay-per-view main event of UFC 229, the reigning champion locked in a rear-naked choke for the ages.
After the fight, Nurmagomedov leaped out of the octagon and attacked Conor McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis. A brawl quickly broke out between the fight camps of the two competitors, all on live PPV broadcast.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has since frozen Khabib Nurmagomedov’s $2 million payday while an investigation is underway. The NSAC will hold a hearing on Nov. 24 to determine if Nurmagomedov and McGregor will be indefinitely suspended throughout the rest of the investigation.
Meanwhile, it would appear that professional wrestling titan WWE has since given Khabib Nurmagomedov an offer to join the organization’s ranks. Check out Khabib Nurmagomedov’s breaking of the news down below.
