Conor McGregor faces a six-month suspension and a $50,000 fine from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl with Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team.
McGregor’s suspension is retroactive to October 6th.
The brawl occurred shortly after Nurmagomedov’s fourth-round submission win over McGregor to retain his lightweight championship.
With both fighters’ careers put on hold awaiting this NAC hearing after the post-fight melee, it’s unclear who each man will face next.
Earlier, Khabib was handed a nine-month retroactive suspension and a $500,000 fine from the NAC.
Meanwhile, his teammates Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov were handed year-long suspensions and fines of $25,000 each.
