Conor McGregor banned for 6 months following post-fight brawl

Conor McGregor banned for 6 months following post-fight brawl

Some believed in a grimmer outcome, with both fighters getting a 6-month suspension in addition to the time they were suspended during the NSAC investigation.

McGregor, meanwhile, has been given a six-month ban and a fine of 50,000 United States dollars (£38,054). Then Nurmagomedov jumped over the cage and attacked one of the coaches in McGregor's corner.

The promotions included Bellator, which is the UFC's chief competition in North America, and ONE Championship, the promotion that recently landed former UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez, as well as Sage Northcutt.

Khabib Nurmagomedov's hearing over the brawl in the aftermath of his fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 began on Tuesday.

There's no love lost between the pair though with Nurmagomedov retweeting a vide of McGregor tapping out to the Russian.

"I don't think it's fair", Abdelaziz told ESPN's Ariel Helwani.

Milwaukee Public Schools closed Wednesday ‘due to inclement weather’
All schools and district offices are closed as well as all district after school, recreation and athletic programs and events. Some Stateline school districts are already making long-term arrangements in anticipation of severe weather.

"That's fair. They'll both get six months".

In addition, Nurmagomedov cornermen Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhogov were fined $25,000 and suspended for a year.

As expected, the UFC lightweight champion has claimed that he will not compete in mixed martial arts until his teammates are free to fight again.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is held back outside of the cage after fighting Conor McGregor in a lightweight title mixed martial arts bout at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on October 6, 2018. The UFC is in in a tough spot because a rematch with McGregor and Nurmagomedov would be huge, but Ferguson is more deserving than McGregor for a title shot.

He was the first fighter to simultaneously hold two UFC titles at once when he beat Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight strap at UFC 205 in 2016.

Conor McGregor was also handed a $50,000 (£38,095) fine for his troubles.
