Conor McGregor And Khabib Nurmagomedov Suspended After UFC 229 Brawl
| Last updated
It has been confirmed both Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett has made a decision, with a hearing taking place on 24 October to determine whether they should be indefinitely suspended pending their investigations, according to ESPN.
It's been almost a week since Khabib Nurmagomedov retained his lightweight crown against Conor McGregor and we still don't know the scale of Nevada State's punishment.
Khabib jumped the cage moments after his win and attacked McGregor's coach, Dillion Danis.
Seconds later, three people from Khabib's team were arrested after attacking his opponent. McGregor decided against pressing charges, partially because of his involvement in the incident.
It was revealed earlier this week that punishments will be enforced as a result of the brawl.
NSAC executive direction Bob Bennett confirmed to MMA Junkie that a 'comprehensive investigation' is currently taking place.
So, what does UFC president Dana White think about Nurmagomedov's situation following the events of UFC 229?
In an interview with TMZSports, White revealed that he thinks the fighter should get a $250,000 (£189,000) fine and a hefty suspension.
"You should not be able to keep his whole purse."
Khabib has still not received his $2 million (£1.5m) purse since winning the bout, while Conor McGregor has received his pay check for the fight in Las Vegas.
"I think they should take ($250,000) from him," White added.
"(He) absolutely keeps his title. And he's going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six months suspension."
