Never-Before-Seen Footage Of McGregor's Teammate Landing A Punch On Khabib During UFC 229 Brawl
Dillon Danis has posted a damning clip of the infamous UFC 229 brawl following the social media spat between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.
Nurmagomedov and McGregor reignited their fierce rivalry as they furiously exchanged tweets on Twitter.
And McGregor's teammate Danis has weighed in on their Twitter beef by sharing a never-before-seen video of the brawl.
The footage shows Danis landing a haymaker flush on Nurmagomedov's chin after he jumped the Octagon and launched himself at McGregor's corner.
Danis' video comes after the pair of UFC lightweights went back-and-forth last weekend.
The Irishman responded to Nurmagomedov's dig aimed at Tony Ferguson by sharing a picture of the Dagestani inside a bus during the infamous Brooklyn attack, accompanied with the words: "'Street fight.'"
He then unleashed a stinging attack on Nurmagomedov's teammate Makhachev, who tweeted: "This is not a woman's sport" following the incredible UFC 248 women's strawweight title clash between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

"An absolute cretin. A Convicted Steroid cheat that will do anything to avoid impact and stall a fight, and then talks down on one of the greatest exchanges of combat ever produced by our female combatants. These little gremlins! It's back on. Filthy rats. Shame on the game," he wrote on Twitter.
Both posts were swiftly deleted but that didn't stop the undefeated UFC champion from responding as he hit back with his own savage tweet.
Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, returns to action next month when he defends his 155lb title against No.1 contender Tony Ferguson in Brooklyn at UFC 249.
"IN STREET FIGHT I CAN EAT YOU."
Baseballs, barbs and belts kicked.

McGregor, meanwhile, is in line to face the winner but he's been linked with a summer fight against No.4 lightweight contender Justin Gaethje, who continues to call for a showdown.
"I think I put myself in a great position to fight for a world title, to try to be the best in the world," he explained.
"If Conor wants to go past me, he has to go through me.
"I think that's the only way to legitimise the process and make it right. I think that's the fight."
