Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor have reportedly been suspended for 10 days by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their post-fight brawl at UFC 229.
According to multiple reports, this is a temporary suspension pending a further review.
The NSAC will meet again Oct. 24 to discuss further penalties.
Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor by rear-naked choke to defend his lightweight title Saturday at UFC 229.
He then got into a confrontation with McGregor’s jiu jitsu coach Dillon Danis, who currently fights for Bellator. Nurmagomedov scaled the cage and got into a fight with Danis, which started a chain of events with punches thrown both inside and out of the octagon.
McGregor is being reviewed for possibly throwing a punch at one of Nurmagomedov’s teammates. He was pushed and punched by two of Khabib’s other teammates after the fight ended.
Nurmagomedov posted on Instagram on Thursday he would quit the UFC if the promotion cut ties with his teammate Zubaira Tukhugov, who was one of the men seen punching McGregor in the cage after the fight.
