Former UFC champion in two weight categories Irishman Conor McGregor admitted that he did not act according to the rules in one of the episodes of the fight with the belt holder Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The knee into the eye socket was illegal yes, from this position. A beauty tho. Never before seen shot. Like many of my shots.
I use the mount defence leg as a spring board, loading the knee below it. Release and straight to the eye socket. Smashed it in! @joerogan. Hey Dana 😂 pic.twitter.com/qZAcbbuIHS

Recall that in a battle that took place in October 2018, Nurmagomedov won a victory by successfully applying a painful hold in the fourth round.
