UFC President Dana White seen a lot of people to to run from the carnage during the brawl, including Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.
“The Governor [Brian Sandoval] was here tonight,” he said at the UFC 229 post-fight press conference. “The Governor went running out of the building. That’s not good. The Governor running out of the building isn’t good. He’s in trouble.”
There has been no comment from Sandoval or any representative from his office at this time.
“And he said, if I have to be arrested, then I have to be arrested, but I want my belt put on me.’ And then finally, [Daniel] Cormier and [Luke] Rockhold did a great job of helping contain the situation and get him out of there,” says White.
No punishments have been handed down to Nurmagomedov at this time, but it would be the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) who would be issuing those.
