One day before the fight, both fighter in the UFC 229 Khabib vs McGregor main event make weight. At the final face off, Conor McGregor wanted to get closer to his opponent, Dana White tried to not let him to close and repeatedly said “no touching, no touching…”. When Conor got “into the range” he smashed Khabib’s outstretched fist and chaos started.
Many member teams from both fighters were at the stage and Dana White together with security guys had a hard job to separate the fighters.
After that Conor took the mic and said to Joe:
“Don’t let that smelly rat put that hat on your head, Joe. The smell of that f**king thing. Don’t ever let him put that hat on your head.
It’s good to be back. UFC fans, it’s good to be fooking back.
The king is home.”
