Nevada Athletic Commission to suspend Conor & Khabib, mulls indefinite ban
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) is suspending UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor starting Monday. A hearing is set to determine if they will be banned for good.
Both fighters will be temporarily suspended on October 15, pending a hearing on October 24, ESPN's Sports Center reported on Thursday, citing a decision by NAC Executive Director Bob Bennet.
The severity and length of the punishment that the two men are expected to face will depend on the outcome of the hearing. The worst case scenario on the table for both is indefinite suspension. The commissioners will vote whether to go that far after reviewing the materials of the ongoing investigation into the fracas that followed McGregor's fourth-round submission to Khabib, RT reports.
