The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Wednesday extended its temporary suspensions of UFC stars Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor for their postfight actions on Oct. 6 at T-Mobile Arena.
McGregor returned from a nearly two-year UFC absence to challenge Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title.
He tapped to a neck crank in the fourth round. Nurmagomedov left the Octagon immediately after his victory to confront McGregor’s corner. McGregor was caught on camera throwing punches at members of Nurmagomedov’s team in the ensuing chaos.
The NSAC placed Nurmagomedov and McGregor on 10-day suspensions on Oct. 15 and it said necessary administrative is in motion as it conducts investigation into thier actions.
The commission voted to extend those suspensions indefinitely until the investigation is over and formal complaints are filed.
The commission did, however, vote to release a portion of Nurmagomedov’s $2 million purse, which it elected to freeze on Oct. 6.
Once the NSAC completes its investigation, it will file complaints against Nurmagomedov, McGregor and potentially other individuals involved.
