Two police officers have been attacked by a pair of drunken UFC fans in Sydney’s north-west.

Several hundred people gathered at a pub on Sunnyholt Road at Kings Park to watch the UFC fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The fight itself is making headlines around the world for its out-of-control finish.

One of the fighters jumped out of the ring, sparking an all-in-brawl in the crowd which has led to several arrests.

At about 4pm, two officers were approached by two men who were intoxicated at the pub.

One of the men became aggressive after being asked to leave the premises and allegedly attacked the officers.

Police used capsicum spray and a taser to subdue them and place them under arrest.

The 27 and 29-year-old men were taken to Riverstone Police Station and have been charged with assaulting police, affray, resisting arrest and intimidation.

Both have been refused bail to face court today.

The officers were taken to Norwest Private Hospital for treatment to minor facial and hand injuries.
