Khabib Nurmagomedov beat Conor McGregor in four rounds at UFC 229 on Saturday night.
The fight was marred by a massive post-fight brawl, which ensued after Nurmagomedov leapt into the crowd after McGregor’s friends.
Among McGregor’s entourage was rapper Drake, who sported an Irish flag when he attended the pre-fight weigh-in on Friday.
While Drake was probably safe in a luxury VIP suite, it didn’t stop people from joking that he would have been terrified to see the Russian flying towards him in the stands.
The memes are now coming thick and fast.
It was pretty much the wild night everyone had expected — and more.
