A video of Dana White's heated conversation with Khabib Nurmagomedov immediately after the UFC 229 brawl shows how intense the situation was following their grudge match.


Nurmagomedov did NOT have the UFC lightweight title wrapped around his waist after submitting Conor McGregor back in October 2018.

That's because White believed fans inside the T-Mobile Arena would have thrown 'sh*t' into the Octagon.

The UFC president told Nurmagomedov: "This is what I believe, if I put this belt on you - everybody's gonna start throwing sh*t into the Octagon."

To which 'The Eagle' replied: "Brother, I ready for this!"

White hit back: "Other people might get hurt."

The UFC boss eventually had his way, with Nurmagomedov ushered out of the cage to the dressing room without having the belt put on him following his title defence.

He reluctantly left the cage with local police, security guards and commissioners escorting him to the back.

It's nearly three years since Nurmagomedov and McGregor's team brawled, but the incident remains etched in MMA history.

Speaking to Mike Tyson about the infamous moment, Nurmagomedov explained: "Okay, when I catch his neck and I choke him like he tap you know.

"And I think hey, you bring like thousands people from Ireland here from different part of world, and you tap in front of them.

"And you talk like about warrior or something like this? How you can tap? Go sleep. Go sleep."

On attacking Dillon Danis, he added: "And he tap and I was like, okay, it's not enough. I need something you know, like.

"And I see some his corners like talk with me and I think oh, I have to bite his heart you know."
