‘He caused a riot’ – analysis
BBC MMA Show presenter Nick Peet:
After seeing that I’ll be so surprised if Khabib isn’t suspended and stripped of the belt, he caused a riot. He blew it, he completely lost control.
To do it in front of 20,000 fans in Vegas in an environment that is being broadcast to the world. It’s incredible.
Khabib has let his team down, he’s let his fans down. This is an absolute disgrace what he has done here.
Former UFC fighter Dan Hardy on BBC Radio 5 live:
I feel that because it was a one-sided fight, Khabib didn’t have chance to get the respect of McGregor.
Because Khabib has mauled McGregor for four rounds, he didn’t get the closure he needed from the fight. As soon as he got back up, there was fight left in him and that’s why he went for one of McGregor’s men.
