After Nurmagomedov submitted McGregor to defend his UFC lightweight title, he immediately jumped the Octagon and aimed a flying kick at Danis, who claims the Russian fighter failed to connect.
"No, he didn't connect," he explained. "You know what's funny, when he jumped over the thing, and he had his feet and his arms up, so like, he didn't really know what he was going to hit me with.
"So, I was like, am I going to get kicked right now or punched? I kind of just blocked then I hit him with a right hand, and then I remember him coming forward, and I was uppercutting him, and then he was just trying to run away, and I was trying to grab his head."

The 2-0 Bellator fighter added: "It was just a whole mayhem and then everybody was getting punched, and cops were going all over the place, and... he didn't touch me at all.
"I remember hitting him with a good amount of shots, and then I just remember him trying to pull away and run away from me, and I was trying to cup his head and uppercut him. But it was mayhem. Everything happened so fast."
