In what really is not surprising news, both Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be temporarily suspended beginning this Monday, according to Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett.
You know, what with the UFC having its first ever match go overtime this weekend at UFC 229 when—after regulation ended with Nurmagomedov defeating McGregor by fourth-round submission—the Dagestan native sent it into overtime by jumping over the Octagon cage and into the crowd in an attempt to fight members of McGregor’s team. While this occurred, McGregor climbed over the cage as well and threw a punch at a member of Nurmagomedov's team who came at him.
Which is why a hearing will take place October 24, when the NAC chairman and commissioners will vote on whether McGregor and Nurmagomedov will be indefinitely suspended pending the results of their investigations.
Nurmagomedov is likely to receive a sanction for starting the post-fight brawl. According to sources, it is likely McGregor will also receive a sanction for jumping on the cage.
And what is even more likely is the suspension will be lifted before either of them fight in Vegas again.
Because the only thing crazier than what those two did would not be letting them do it again—well the fight part.
Not the brawl.
