JNPO: A reality check for UFC 229: Melee at The Mobile

Image: Las Vegas Review Journal

It was an unbelievable scene in the moments following UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov's submission victory over Conor McGregor at Saturday's UFC 229, one that is overshadowing the actual finish itself.

Helping me sort through all of the opinion clutter following the happenings is old friend Dave Doyle of MMAFighting.com. 

We discuss what our immediate thoughts were when everything happened, my prediction for what the Nevada State Athletic Commission is going to do to Khabib and what happens after that, the roads for both men over the next year. why ultimately this isn't that bad, and more.

We also discuss being a little worn out by Tony Ferguson's act, why Anthony Pettis' new fighting style may take him out of title contention, and more.

In case you missed any of what happened, here's our fight night recap and a Sunday morning update on everything that happened overnight.
