Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor suspended for UFC 229 brawl
- Fighters banned at least 10 days by Nevada Athletic Commission
- Saturday’s event in Las Vegas ended in brawls
- Nurmagomedov threatened to quit UFC over treatment of friend
The Nevada Athletic Commission has suspended Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov for at least 10 days after their fight at UFC 229 ended with brawls spreading into the crowd. The suspensions are effective from 15 October but could be extended once the events of last Saturday in Las Vegas have been investigated further.
Meanwhile, Nurmagomedov says he will quit UFC if one of his fellow fighters is punished for his role in the aftermath of the Russian’s victory over Conor McGregor last Saturday.
