Khabib Nurmagomedov completely lost the plot moments after defeating Conor McGregor at UFC 229 in the early hours of this morning - but there could be more to it than meets the eye.
Having beat the Irishman inside the Octagon in Las Vegas, a mass brawl, which the Russian and his team were heavily involved in, resulted in members of his backroom staff being arrested following on from their actions.
Ugly scenes marred the bout, which was Nurmagomedov's first UFC Lightweight title defence.
Throughout the fight, Khabib held the advantage over the Dubliner, rocking McGregor, even threatening to break his left arm at one stage.
The 30-year-old soon got his own back later, however, when he was guilty of a knee, from the ground, which was aimed at the head of Nurmagomedov.
The move from McGregor saw Dominick Cruz, on co-commentary for the UFC, slam as "illegal."
Fight referee Herb Dean didn't punish McGregor for his move, letting the decision slide.
The following round saw McGregor up the tempo, landing blows to his opponent.
As the third round drew to a close, the champion was furious with McGregor, and had to be pushed away by referee Dean.
Khabib was left livid with McGregor's actions, and was heard saying to Dean: "Three times he do it. Three times... You say to him 'Two times' and he still [does it]."
However, in the fourth round, Khabib went for the jugular, securing another take-down that McGregor could not come back from.
And that of course is when all hell broke loose inside The T-Mobile Arena, as Nurmagomedov lept out of the Octagon to confront McGregor's team, before Notorious was himself attacked by members of Khabib's entourage.
UFC commentator Joe Rogan spoke about the Dubliner's glove-hooking after the fight.
He told UFC on FOX: "Khabib was angry because Conor was grabbing Khabib's gloves. He was hooking against his gloves and he was doing it illegally.
"Khabib said it to Herb Dean, he said that Conor did it three times. That's what it was all about. That's why he was fired up."
