If you didn't know already, Conor McGregor was defeated by Dagestani fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, and his dream of winning UFC 229 was left in tatters. 

Following the fight, Khabib lept over the cage to attack Conor's teammate Dillion Danis, which coincidentally ignited a huge brawl following the fight.

With Khabib fighting members of Conor's team and Notorious defending himself against Nurmagomedov's entourage, which included UFC fighter Tukhukov, carnage was occurring in Las Vegas. 

However, the man of the hour stepped up. 

Was it a bird? Was it a plane? No, it was David Martin - a chief designer from California. 

Once the beginnings of the brawl began to unfold, Martin heroically lept out of his seat and into the Octagon to help defuse the situation.

In an interview with ESPN, the current heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier discussed the antics of Martin and the 'random dude in a nice jacket' standing in the cage.

“There’s a guy behind me. He’s wearing this nice jacket - So he’s standing behind me, and he goes, ‘Who do you got in the fight?’ This guy’s completely not into the game, right? So I go, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna go Khabib.’

"So after the fight, when we all jumped the rail, I’m like in the Octagon pushing, and the guy’s like checking on Conor McGregor.

"He was like a fan. He was just like a fan that jumped the rail when everyone else jumped the rail and got all the way to the Octagon – he was like checking on Conor.

"I (later) asked my wife, ‘Salina, what happened with that guy? Was he with McGregor?’ She goes, ‘Daniel, after he went and checked to make sure Conor was OK, he just got back in his seat.’

"I swear to God. He just climbed the rail and got back in his seat. I was like, ‘What in the world just happened!? What in the world just happened!?’ It was crazy. How did this dude end up in the Octagon, and then he checked to make sure Conor was OK, and then he went back and sat down.”

Well, it seems that David certainly got his money's worth at UFC 229.
