NSAC Confirms Suspensions & Fines For Khabib Nurmagomedov & Conor McGregor
By FCF Staff
The Nevada State Athletic Commission has ruled on the disciplinary actions Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor are receiving, on account of the post-fight brawl that occurred at UFC 229.
The NSAC has suspended Nurmagomedov for nine months, and fined him $500,000, for jumping over the cage at the October 6th event to get at McGregor’s corner. If the lightweight champ participates in an anti-bullying campaign, however, the retroactive suspension could be reduced to six months (Nurmagomedov would be eligible to compete on April 6th).
McGregor, on the other hand, was retroactively suspended for six months and fined $50,000 for his role in the ugly melee. McGregor lost the October 6th bout to Nurmagomedov via fourth round, submisison.
Nurmagomedov’s teammates, Zubaira Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov, have been suspended for one year and fined $25,000 each for their actions during the incident.
