Conor McGregor has been banned for six months and fined $50,000 (£38,095) for his part in the ugly scenes which marred UFC 229 in October last year.
A five-member of the National Athletic Commission during hearing on Tuesday, January 29, voted in favor of a settlement agreement that will see McGregor fined $50,000 and receive a six-month suspension.
They said “it should be noted that commissioners are unhappy with McGregor’s behavior in recent years, because it appears to be escalating in intensity (pointing specifically to the bus attack in New York). Simply put, he’s walking on eggshells in “Sin City.”
McGregor’s suspension will be retroactive to Oct. 6, 2018, allowing him to compete again by April 6.
Meanwhile, his opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov, received a nine-month suspension and has been fined $500,000 (£380,950).
The Russian started a brawl by the octagon after beating McGregor, before the Irishman was involved in a bust-up with his opponent’s team.
How the fight started
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.
It is however understood that Nurmagomedov’s suspension could be reduced to six months if he participates in an anti-bullying campaign in Nevada.
