The Nevada Athletic Commission has suspended Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov for at the least 10 days after their struggle at UFC 229
The Nevada Athletic Commission has suspended Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov for at the least 10 dates after their fight at UFC 229 ended with brawls spreading into the crowd. The danglings are effective from 15 October but could be extended once the events of last-place Saturday in Las Vegas have been investigated further.
Meanwhile, Nurmagomedov says he will quit UFC if one of his fellow fighters is penalized for his role in the consequences of the Russian’s victory over McGregor.
Dana White said he could restriction Zubaira Tukhugov from UFC after he was involved in a skirmish with McGregor at the end of the fight. Nurmagomedov also pushed with one of McGregor’s trainers after the fight.
In an Instagram post on Thursday before his expulsion was announced, Nurmagomedov referenced McGregor’s attack on a bus carrying UFC fighters earlier this year.
” I would like to address @ufc. Why didn’t you flaming anyone when their squad assaulted the bus and injured a couple of parties? They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, kinfolk ?” wrote Nurmagomedov likewise referring to the slurs McGregor led at him during the build-up to UFC 229.” Why do you have to punish my team, when both teams fought. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started.
” In all such cases, penalise me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that. If you think that I’ll keep silent then you are mistaken. You canceled Zubaira’s fight and you want to dismiss him exactly because he affected Conor. But don’t forget that it was Conor who had smacked my another Brother FIRST, just check the video. If you decide to fire him, you should know that you’ll lose me more. We never give up on our brothers in Russia and I will go to the end for my Brother. If you still decide to fire him, don’t forget to send me my busted contract, otherwise I’ll burst it myself .”
The Nevada Athletic Commission has denied Nurmagomedov’s purse from the fight. Nurmagomedov brushed off the subject of money in the Instagram post.” And one more thing, you are able to impede my money that you are withholding. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won’t get stuck in your throat. We have represented our honor and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end. #Brothers .”
