Was McGregor vs Khahib post match brawl faked to drum up some publicity

The more you think about it, the more it seems an awful lot of people might have been conned by the kerfuffle at the end of the UFC fight between Conor McGregor and Khahib Nurmagomedov.

Let’s put it this way. If you are a fan of UFC, the post-bout brawl is not going to suddenly turn you off.

If you were not a fan of UFC and had never actually heard of it, chances are you have now.

And you might be intrigued when McGregor next gets into the octagon.

Genuine nasty, disgraceful, vicious, unscheduled mass fight, in which no-one appears to have been significantly injured, despite the participants being trained or steeped in ‘Ultimate Fighting’?

Or PR stunt?

Whatever your take, UFC president Dana White’s faux outrage is exactly that.

False, fake. If it was a con job, plenty have been taken in.
