Two men that have beaten Conor McGregor got acquainted in Las Vegas at UFC 239 and things went south very, very fast
There was more than enough action to drink it at UFC 239. After all, three of the five main card fights ended in knockout.
However, the octagon wasn’t the only place where the action was flowing on Saturday night in Las Vegas, how about in the stands, too?
With unbeaten lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov in attendance, Nate Diaz made his way past him the row behind where the Russian was sitting.
After a few words, it didn’t take long for things to get heated and the two men had to be separated.
The one thing these two men have in common is a win over Conor McGregor, although Diaz has suffered a loss as well.
Nurmagomedov may not have learned his lessons from the skirmish that followed UFC 229 where he defeated McGregor and landed him a ban from UFC.
He will return from said ban at UFC 242 against Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi to crown an undisputed lightweight champion.
The next time Diaz steps into the octagon will be at UFC 241 in the co-main event against Anthony Pettis, at welterweight.
While there is no word on what caused the near-brawl yet, UFC president Dana White speculated ‘”I’m sure a lot of bad things were said’.
