New Footage Emerges Showing Khabib's Immediate Reaction To McGregor Causing Mayhem
Al Iaquinta has provided new footage of Conor McGregor wrecking havoc in Brooklyn, which shows Khabib Nurmagomedov's reaction from inside the bus.
McGregor appeared at UFC 223 fight week, and made his presence known. To say the least.
His ex-UFC lightweight title was on the line with Nurmagomedov taking on
Ferguson, Holloway, Iaquinta who stepped up on very, very short notice after Anthony Pettis failed to hit the championship weight.
However, the card was marred following McGregor's attack on a bus carrying UFC fighters. He was looking for the undefeated Dagestani after he confronted his teammate, Artem Lobov.
The Irishman ambushed a UFC 223 presser, and caused mayhem, putting a window through with a dolly. While plenty of footage has surfaced, Iaquinta's video from inside the bus shows Nurmagomedov's immediate reaction.
McGregor's actions were condemned by UFC president Dana White who branded the incident as 'disgusting'.
The former UFC champion subsequently handed himself into the New York Police Department, and appeared in court.
He's since been bailed out, and has taken to social media to reflect.

While White was extremely upset with McGregor's involvement, he changed his tune following UFC 223.
"We talked, it's good," he said at the post-fight press conference via MMA Mania.
"I think that there's a mutual respect between us and obviously this week, I had so many things thrown at me. To focus on this show was insane. We'll get back and we'll focus on Conor McGregor.
"At the end of the day, there's a lot worse that goes on in all the other sports, so I'll take a dolly through a window any day."
Meanwhile, Iaquinta, who captured the above footage, was ultimately tasked with taking on Nurmagomedov at UFC 223.
Despite heroically filling the main-event void, he lost a five-round lop sided decision, with Nurmagomedov improving his insane professional record to 26-0, claiming UFC gold in the process.
Who's next for the unbeaten 29-year-old? McGregor? Well, here's hoping so!
