Conor McGregor's long-awaited return to the Octagon was one of UFC's most anticipated fights in the sport's history. But what should have been a showcase for the sport ended up becoming embroiled in controversy after a brawl broke out following the fight. The Irishman was completely outclassed by Khabib Nurmagomedov and tapped out midway through the fourth round. But events that followed completely overshadowed Nurmagomedov's win after the Russian climbed out of the cage and attacked one of McGregor's team. His actions sparked a riot with McGregor appearing to strike members of Nurmagomedov's team, before two of them jumped into the Octagon and attacked McGregor. UFC President Dana White refused to give the belt to Nurmagomedov fearing a riot while three people were arrested and released without charge following the ugly scenes.
