UFC 229: Conor McGregor suspended for six months for post-UFC 229 melee

Conor McGregor has been suspended for six months and fined $50,000 (£38,095) for his part in the ugly scenes which marred UFC 229 in October.

His opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov, received a nine-month suspension and has been fined $500,000 (£380,950).

Russian Nurmagomedov began a brawl by the octagon after beating McGregor, before the Irishman was involved in a bust-up with his opponent’s team.

Both suspensions have been backdated to the date of the Las Vegas fight.

However, Nurmagomedov’s suspension could be reduced to six months if he participates in an anti-bullying campaign in Nevada.

If it is, it is not expected he will return to action until after 5 June because the practising Muslim will honour Ramadan.
