UFC 229 Wiki Update Wiki

UFC 229 was a pay-per-view event hosted at Madison Square Garden on October 6th, 2018. The card was headlined by the highly anticipated lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. The main card also featured Tony Ferguson fighting Anthony Pettis, Dominick Reyes fighting Ovince Saint Preux, Derrick Lewis fighting Alexander Volkov, and Michelle Waterson fighting Felice Herrig.
After the main event, Khabib jumped over the Octagon fence to attack Dillon Danis. Danis, a teammate of McGregor, had been on record casting doubts about Khabib's skills in the buildup to the event, and there have been accusations that Danis had been yelling personal insults to Khabib during the fight.
The event also saw Derrick Lewis make his statement "my balls was hot".
