BREAKING: Conor McGregor has been suspended by the UFC.
Following Conor McGregor’s recent fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas, the Irish Superstar has been suspended by the UFC.
It is understood that the decision to suspend McGregor is based on medical grounds and nothing to do with the brawl after the fight. He will not be allowed any contact until October 28.
The Official UFC list of medical suspensions reads simply: ‘Conor McGregor: Suspended until 6/11/18, no contact until 28/10/18.’
However, McGregor’s opponent Khabib, who defeated the Irishman at the weekend, escaped suspension on medical grounds after finishing the fight relatively unscathed.
Khabib passed post-match medical examinations but he will also likely be suspended for his role in the brawl after the fight.
