Conor McGregor has been given a one-month suspension on medical grounds after he was beaten and defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov in the fourth round at UFC 229.
The Irish wrestler was submitted by rear naked choke in the fourth round of their lightweight championship bout after mauling from Russian wrestler, Khabib Nurmagomedov on Saturday.
The official UFC statement reads: ‘Conor McGregor: Suspended until 6/11/18, no contact until 28/10/18.’
The UFC often hands out suspensions on medical grounds and he could yet be given a longer suspension by the UFC and also Nevada State Athletic Commission for the brawl.
McGregor’s team-mate Dillon Danis gestured Khabib to come outside. Khabib then jumped over the cage to attack Dillon Danis.
McGregor landed a seemingly unprovoked punch on the champion’s cousin which could be given him a lengthy suspension from competition.
McGregor and Khabib’s rivalry started when McGregor offered Khabib, who is a Sunni Muslim, whiskey at a press conference in New York and called him a ‘Dagestani rat’.
He also called Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz a ‘terrorist’, ‘snitch’ and ‘rat’.
