50 Cent & Mike Tyson React To Conor Mcgregor And Khabib Nurmagomedov Chaotic Scenes
Conor McGregor lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in his UFC comeback fight after two years out of the octagon. Following the loss at UFC 229 50 Cent was quick to rub in the loss to his old foe.
Last year Conor McGregor fought Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match which meant that he was out of the mma game for two years. On Saturday night he returned in an attempt to take back the UFC lightweight title he never lost.
He came up against Khabib Nurmagomedov, undoubtedly his toughest ever opponent, after three and a half extremely intriguing rounds it was the Russian who was victorious.
'The Eagle' held on to his lightweight title and undefeated record, which he stretched to 27-0, by forcing his Irish opponent to tap out to a reverse choke, although it didn't end up being the biggest story.
Whilst no doubt licking his war wounds, after an exciting fight, McGregor was having the salt rubbed into his wounds by 50 Cent.

The pair's weird rivalry goes back a while and came to the surface during McGregor's dalliance with boxing and his fight with Mayweather in August 2017.

After that fight the rapper had also posted on social media, then it was on Instagram, to poke fun at the Irishman for losing, and becoming the 50th victory of Mayweather's professional boxing career.
The headlines from the fight though didn't really concentrate on the action in between the bells but actually what happened after McGregor had lost.
Khabib had verbals with one of the Irishman's friends before launching himself out of the octagon to attack him. All the while two of the Russian's teammates attacked McGregor.
The scenes were so crazy even 'Iron' Mike Tyson was shocked:
Watching the @TheNotoriousMMA vs @TeamKhabib fight. Unimaginable never thought it would go down like this. Crazier than my fight riot.

You know it's been a crazy night when even Tyson can't get his head around everything that we've just witnessed.
It should have been a great night of sport but instead it'll be remembered for an extremely negative reason.
Still, you can always count of 50 Cent to get his two pennies worth.
