He was clearly right.
Chaos erupted inside and outside the cage immediately after Nurmagomedov finished off a mauling of McGregor by forcing a tapout with a rear-naked choke at 3:03 of the fourth round Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena.
Nurmagomedov leaped over the cage after the win and appeared to be going after Dillon Danis, a Bellator fighter who serves as McGregor's jiu-jitsu coach, who was yelling from outside the cage.
The skirmish between Nurmagomedov and Danis sparked a massive brawl with fans pushing their way through barricades and attempting to join the fray.
As all the attention was focused on Nurmagomedov, more scuffles were ignited inside the cage when two members of Nurmagomedov's team began trading punches with a startled McGregor, who had tried to follow Nurmagomedov over the cage fence only to be thwarted by security.
