Chaos erupted during a Lil Wayne performance in Atlanta over the weekend. Get the deets, plus see how YBFers reacted to the brawl that broke out AFTER an official UFC fight inside...
Chaos was unleashed while Lil Wayne was performing over the weekend.
The Young Money honcho, who recently released his highly anticipated Carter V album, hit the stage during the A3C Festival held at The Georgia Freight Depot in Atlanta when his set was cut short after someone yelled out that bullets were being fired.
According to reports and witnesses on the scene, Wayne was half way into his set when someone declared there was a gunman in the midst of them and that caused folks to scramble as they attempted to get out of harm's way. However, it doesn't appear to have been a shooter at all.
While no one was shot, people did get injured as they tried to escape. Peep a few clips of the chaos below:

Lordt. That had to be scary.
“There have been approximately 12 minor injuries reported to police such as ankle injuries and lacerations from attempting to jump fences," the Atlanta Police Department told PEOPLE magazine in a statement.
When people began rushing from the scene, bodyguards grabbed Weezy and hauled him off the stage
Here's a clip of Wayne leaving the venue below:
After the drama, Wayne hopped on Twitter, hoping everyone was OK

Glad no one was seriously injured.
By the way, Wayne's Carter V has already gone gold, it debuted #1 on Billboard 200, which makes it his fourth #1 album. It's also the 2nd largest U.S. streaming album of the year, so far.
Speaking of drama....
So this happened at UFC 229...
Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov were tapped to fight at UFC 229, which was promoted as one of the biggest fights in MMA history. Well, it certainly held up to all the hype.
Khabib Nurmagomedov got the best of McGregor and was ultimately crowned as the winner. However, after the fight ended, he wasn't done. Nurmagomedov ended up hopping over the fence and started a fight with one of the members of McGregor's team. McGregor was also attacked.
Eventually, both fighters were escorted away and Nurmagomedov never received his UFC belt.
Naturally, Twitter went into a frenzy and everyone had something to say about the brawl AFTER the actual fight.
