During the latest edition of his podcast (via Wrestling Inc), Steve Austin spoke about the UFC 229 main event and the post fight brawl that erupted between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s teams…

On The Fight: I’ll tell you, man, going into that main event, the money fight, Conor McGregor, the wonderful showman and mixed martial arts guy that he is, super talented cat, taking on Khabib Nurmagomedov. I hope I said that right. A lot of people had Conor winning this fight. I was really wondering to see, you’ve got to watch that quick left hand, his footwork, his crazy athletic ability. And, man, all the buildup, this thing has been going back for quite a time with that bus incident over there in Brooklyn [New York]. And I’ll tell you what, man, it was a hell of a damn fight. And Khabib had an answer for everything that Conor could attempt to do and just controlled that fight. He ended up tapping Conor out. It looked more like a neck crank than a choke to me. And Conor tapped out. The dude is humble in defeat, talks up a good game. Super game guy, he’s going to be back.

On The Post Fight Brawl: And then [after the fight], Khabib jumps over the damn cage and goes after one of Conor’s teammates, I guess it was his jiu-jitsu coach. A lot of heat there. Threw his mouthpiece. It turned into a spectacle. Big ass melee down there. Security was in high numbers. They really shut that fight down, that brawl, that riot, from really getting bad and hurting people. On one hand, it was interesting to say the least, from any angle you want to look at it. Man, I think the dude kind of worked himself into a shoot, went into business for himself, and did something that wasn’t that smart. And we’ll see what comes out of it, to see if there’s a rematch between those two, if he gets stripped of the [UFC Lightweight] title, if he’s suspended. I know they held up his paycheck. Either way you look at it, it was a pretty wild ordeal.
