The fallout from UFC 229 continues.
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s fourth-round victory over Conor McGregor was just the start of the story.
The Russian then decided to jump out of the cage and attack Dillon Danis - McGregor’s teammate.
It led to a mass brawl outside the octagon, while members of Khabib’s team were involved in a scuffle with McGregor in the cage - although it may actually have been the Irishman who threw the first punch.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) are investigating and both fighters could be dealt with some hefty punishments.
They’ve currently withheld Khabib’s $2 million purse but, even if they strip him of the UFC Lightweight belt, they can’t take away his victory.
Although he couldn’t celebrate his win by parading his belt around the cage after the fight, he could celebrate in the team’s dressing room.
And footage has emerged of Khabib walking back in after his win.
You can also hear the first words The Eagle says upon walking into the room.
Khabib can be heard saying: “I told you guys he is tap machine, he cannot do 5 rounds.”
WATCH: KHABIB'S FIRST WORDS IN DRESSING ROOM
Take a look:
Well, he was right.
After dominating the fight, Khabib won with a neck crank late in the fourth round causing McGregor to tap out.
Unfortunately, Khabib’s actions immediately afterward mean he could be severely punished by NSAC and a decision will be made as to whether he will be suspended indefinitely.
Khabib has already threatened to quit UFC voluntarily, though, due to the punishment looming over Zubaira Tukhugov and his role in attacking McGregor after the fight.
Khabib posted on Instagram that “If you decide to fire him [Tukhugov], you should know that you’ll lose me too.”
