Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will both have to wait until the New Year to learn their disciplinary fate, following the fallout from their UFC 229 fight.
Nurmagomedov beat McGregor via a fourth round submission in October but the fight was soured by an unseemly post-fight melee, which saw the UFC lightweight champion dive into the crowd to confront McGregor cornerman Dillon Danis.
McGregor was then involved in a fracas with members of Nurmagomedov’s team inside the octagon.
Both fighters had originally been scheduled to appear at a Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing today but they have sought and received continuances.
The next time that their cases can be heard now by the NSAC is at the commission’s next meeting on January 29, although there is the possibility that they could reach settlement agreements with the NSAC before then.
The NSAC are still understood to be holding half of Nurmagomedov’s $2million fight purse following the October fracas and while McGregor’s purse was not withheld, the commission have requested that both men appear in person to explain their actions.
