Conor McGregor Granted Continuance in NAC Case Regarding UFC 229 Post-Fight Brawl

By Tristen Critchfield Dec 4, 2018

Conor McGregor will not appear before the Nevada Athletic Commission on Dec. 10 as originally anticipated.

The former UFC champion was granted a continuance in his case regarding the post-fight brawl that occurred following his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, according to multiple outlets. McGregor has also been removed from next Monday’s agenda on the NAC website.

It is currently unclear when McGregor’s case will be heard. As of now, Nurmagomedov remains on the agenda to have his disciplinary complaint heard before the commission. The UFC lightweight champion is not expected to be in attendance on Monday, however.

Both McGregor and Nurmagomedov are facing punishment for the melee that began when the Dagestani fighter jumped out of the Octagon following his UFC 229 victory to attack McGregor cornerman Dillon Danis. In the meantime, McGregor climbed the cage and took a swing at Nurmagomedov training partner Abubakar Nurmagomedov. Then, Zubaira Tukhugov and Esedulla Emiragaev entered the cage to confront McGregor, and Tukugov landed a punch on McGregor from behind.

The NAC has launched an investigation into the incident. Half of Nurmagomedov’s $2 million disclosed purse was withheld until the case is resolved. Both he and McGregor could face further fines and suspensions from the commission.
