Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov's punishments for UFC 229 revealed

Nurmagomedov given 9-month suspension Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov Receive Suspensions, Fines From UFC 229 Incident

The suspensions for both fighters are retroactive to October 6, the day the fight took place, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The Nevada Athletic Commission handed down the bans and fines during a hearing on Tuesday.

Don't expect Khabib Nurmagomedov to take a fight in the state of Nevada again.

Conor McGregor has been suspended six months and fined $50k (the equivalent of €43,765) for his role in the post-UFC 229 melee. Should he serve the full ninth months, the 30-year-old Nurmagomedov will be eligible on July 6, which typically falls during International Fight Week in Las Vegas as one of the UFC's' biggest pay-per-view cards of the year.

Nurmagomedov's suspension can be reduced by three months if he contributes to an anti-bullying Public Service Announcement - which results in the two fighters able to return to the Octagon around the same time.

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is targeting a return to the Octagon at New York City's Madison Square Garden in November, his manager told Ariel Helwani of ESPN. "Khabib gets $500,000 and Conor gets $50,000?"

If they do so, McGregor may have a lot of heavy fines and suspensions levied his way. "I think it's bulls--".

The suspension is dated retroactively to October.

Abubakar Nurmagomedov, who jumped the cage wall to punch McGregor, and fellow Nurmagomedov teammate Zubaira Tukhogov were each suspended one year and fined $25,000 for their actions.
