Conor McGregor & Khabib Nurmagomedov’s bans extended after brawl following UFC fight


The bans issued to Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have been extended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission until an investigation into the brawl that followed their UFC lightweight world title fight is completed.

Following his victory on 7 October, Nurmagomedov jumped the octagon fence and started fighting his rival’s team.

McGregor then fought with the Russian’s camp as numerous brawls broke out.

The Commission voted to release half – $1m – of Nurmagomedov’s fight purse.

The other half of the Russian’s prize money will be withheld until a disciplinary hearing in December.

Both fighters have been requested to attend the hearing in person.
