McGregor Receives 6-Month Suspension, Fined $50k
On Tuesday, five members of the National Athletic Commission voted in favor of a settlement agreement that will see McGregor fined $50,000 and receive a six-month suspension. McGregor’s suspension will be retroactive to Oct. 6, 2018, allowing him to compete again by Apr. 6.
After Khabib Nurmagomedov claimed a fourth-round finish of McGregor at T-Mobile Arena, the Russian exited the Octagon and attempted to leap on McGregor’s cornerman, Dillon Danis. McGregor attempted to exit the Octagon shortly after before members of Nurmagomedov’s team entered the Octagon. McGregor and Nurmagomedov’s teammates exchanged strikes before they were separated by security.
