Connor threw the first punch:
Oct 7th, 2018 10:20 am
But Khabib jumped out of the cage first to attack someone to initiate this whole thing. Connor did throw the punch on top of the cage but three guys attempted to attack him afterwards.

The melee started because of the history between Khabib and Danis compound by all the crap Connor spewed about Khabib's religion, family, etc.sharpshooter88 wrote: ↑Oct 7th, 2018 10:20 amBut Khabib jumped out of the cage first to attack someone to initiate this whole thing.

I love the trash talk and promos to sell fights, but crap like this and the bus incident are so ridiculous and unnecessary. Khabib and his team are going to be seeing some serious penalties. But not from the UFC though, Dana didn't even slap Connor on the wrist for the bus incident and Khabib will get the same treatment because he needs his stars.

Plus that infamous bus incident.
Khabib comes from the part of the world where honour and shame are taken seriously. I don't like what Khabib did but he is a trained killer and it's not up to me to tell him how he should react even someone takes trash talking too far.
Here is current two division Champ summing it up perfectly:
I have seen ppl knocked out for uttering the N word or even even alt right clowns like Spencer get punched. Emotions coupled with human nature will inevitably result in things taking a turn for the worst.
On a side note, this event really resulted in chaos including someone being executed point blank:

That's exactly it. Khabib wasn't in it just for the money, he has said this multiple times.sharpshooter88 wrote: ↑Oct 7th, 2018 11:15 amI get it, but Khabib proved his point by schooling Connor.
Should've ended it there. Doesn't excuse him for attacking Connor's team outside of the cage. I can't help but feel Khabib is too thin skinned for selling fights.
Connor is a salesman and knows how to market and sell fights, and most fighters can only dream of getting matched up with him because it means a million dollar pay day. You just have to endure the antics and nonsense that comes out of Connor's mouth.

Different cultures and when you play with fire, you get what you saw last night. Connor hopefully learned his lesson.
Btw Connor has a history so let's not pretend Khabib and his crew did all of this to an innocent guy.
Connor also has done the following:
- threw bottles at Diaz's crew during presser
- went into the crowd to confront Aldo
- went after a referee during one of his buddy's fights
Connor tried playing games with Khabib and found out the hard way. The bully got exposed and taught a lesson.

I don't have a favourite and just enjoy a good fight, but Khabib clearly initiated the melee yesterday, regardless of the history and lead up to the fight. Khabib and team will be penalized for it.
