The main event of UFC 229, the mixed martial arts championship event on Saturday evening at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, quickly devolved into chaos.

After a fourth round that saw UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov rain down blows on his loudmouthed opponent Conor McGregor, the Dagestani fighter got the Irishman into a brutal headlock, ultimately getting him to submit. Then, Khabib mouthed some words to McGregor, marched over to the edge of the Octagon fence, threw his mouthpiece out, and began shouting at McGregor’s team in the crowd.

Before you could say uh oh, Khabib had scaled the fence and attacked McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis, and a full-on melee ensued. Members of Khabib’s team then entered the Octagon over the fence and sucker-punched McGregor. Both fighters had to be escorted out of the arena separately, and there was no belt presentation. According to UFC President Dana White, three members of Khabib’s team have been arrested over the incident. This is a developing situation, and criminal charges may be filed.
