Last night’s (Sat., October 6, 2018) UFC 229 is in the books from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. From knockouts to come-from-behind wins, the night lived up to lofty expectations. With so many heart-stopping moments and unexpected fiascos, it’s inevitably going to result in a mix of water cooler talk on Monday morning.

From Conor McGregor tapping out again, to the unbelievable comeback and heart of Derrick Lewis, to the unfortunate brawl after the awaited main event, UFC 229 was just one hell of a night.

Here are LowkickMMA’s eight biggest takeaways from the absolutely out-of-control UFC 229.

Khabib Should Be Arrested And/Or Stripped

By all accounts, UFC 229 was the biggest and most-watched fight card in company history. Yet Khabib Nurmagomedov decided to act a fool.

It’s a shame that such a masterful performance will be marred in controversy. But unfortunately that’s the situation with Khabib, and the sport of MMA finds itself in. What was he thinking as he scaled the cage and dove at Dillon Danis?

UFC President Dana White was noticeably subdued during the post-fight press conference when he explained that he doesn’t know what the future holds for the unbeaten champion. Several media members asked White if Khabib would be stripped of his lightweight title.

White chose his words carefully while addressing Khabib but did reveal that the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) is going to most likely slam the Dagestani for this actions on Saturday night.

Making matters worse for Khabib, Nevada’s governor was in attendance for UFC 229. Per White, the governor went running for his life when the brawl broke out. The governor oversees the athletic commission. That can’t bode well for the Dagestani.

UFC Fight Night 132 emanated this morning (Saturday, June 23, 2018) from Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The slate was main-evented by a welterweight clash between veteran action fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and up-and-comer Leon Edwards. Their fight was contested at a simmer for much of the full 25 minutes, with the Brit controlling most of the action with his power and distance management. Though Edwards earned a unanimous decision in the biggest win of his career, he would not take home any bonus money.

Fighting in the co-main event, Ovince St. Preux did with a Performance of the Night. His short but back-and-forth battle with Tyson Pedro ended in under four minutes. Pedro hit OSP with a head kick and then dropped him to the base of the fence with a right hand. The Tennessean popped up and reversed a takedown attempt to end up in top position. Soon after, he had a kimura grip on Pedro’s arm and transitioned to the straight armlock. OSP’s strength was on full display, as he elicited the tap a moment later, earning an extra $50,000 in the process.

On the undercard, 20-year-old Chinese prospect Song Yadong moved his record to 2-0 in the UFC by taking out Felipe Arantes in the second round. Yadong was able to counter failed takedowns by the Brazilian, get on top, and beat him up. Late in the second frame, with Arantes’ back to the cage, Yadong unleashed a vicious elbow over the top that put down the BJJ brown belt. Coffin-nail punches brought an end to it with one second left in the round. “The Terminator” will pocket an extra $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts.

Also in preliminary action, the Fight of the Night went to featherweight strikers Rolando Dy and Shane Young. The two traded heavy leather on the feet for the duration of the fight. Young hurt the Filipino with a vicious elbow strike late in the second round. Rocked and compromised, Dy covered up against the cage, where “Sugar” Shane swarmed. Dy fell to his knees, forcing the referee to jump in on his behalf, but both men will leave Singapore $50,000 richer for their entertaining scrap.
