Here's the melee with the live announcers..
Conor McGregor v Khabib
— Bin Veto (@binveto) October 7, 2018
All media reports I've seen ignore the fact that Conor threw the first punch in the melee...
So Conor hit Khabib men 1st...??

- 3 of Khabib's corner were arrested & later released since Conor didn't press charges
- Khabib's purse is being withheld by the Nevada Athletic Commmission subject to an investigation
- Conor has received his cheque
- Khabib retains the title but the Nevada Athletic Commmission (who regulate the UFC) may suspend him or worse
- Most UFC fighters have reacted negatively but it's been mostly positive feedback from fans because Conor went too far with what he said in the buildup.... plus a lot of people just like whoever wins.
- Khabib's corner may also suffer penalties/suspensions - it's likely some of them will not be able to attend future UFC events
- I don't think guy in the red tee who blindsided Conor is in Khabib's team
- Correction, guy in red tee is in Khabib's team but he wasn't a cornerman.

They don't call him the eagle for nothing...
He took Khabib lightly and he paid for it.
