LAS VEGAS – It was a big day for three of the UFC’s most bankable superstars, all in Las Vegas.
UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former champ Conor McGregor were formally suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their roles in the infamous UFC 229 brawl. They also each were fined, and two of Nurmagomedov’s corners were suspended and fined, as well.
Nurmagomedov was given a nine-month suspension and $500,000 fine. McGregor was suspended for six months and fined just $50,000. Nurmagomedov will be eligible to return in July; McGregor can come back as soon as April.
And the NSAC voted unanimously to grant Jon Jones a one-fight conditional license to compete at UFC 235, clearing the way for the light heavyweight champ’s fight against Anthony Smith. That move comes in the wake of Jones continuing to show trace amounts of the M3 metabolite of the steroid oral turinabol in his urine.
After the lengthy hearings, let MMAjunkie’s John Morgan fill you in on the pertinent details for all three fighters in the video above.
