Conor McGregor given one-month medical suspension

6 October 2018 Conor Mc Gregor following defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in their UFC lightweight championship fight during UFC 229 at T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada USA

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has met Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the leader congratulating Nurmagomedov on his win over Conor McGregor - which Putin described as "worthy and convincing".

Now both Nurmagomedov and McGregor face possible sanctions from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their role in the mayhem that unfolded after the event ended. "And he's going to get suspended (by the NAC), so maybe you give him a four-to-six month suspension".

"He absolutely keeps his title", White said.

"He came up to me and he was like 'hey man, '" Ortega told TMZ of the moment when Danis approached him in a bar, in the hours immediately after the fight.

White said the NAC has not given Nurmagomedov his prize money pending an investigation of the situation and could impose a fine for his actions.

Hubble usually uses three gyros at a time for maximum efficiency, but can continue to make scientific observations with just one. Hubble has made numerous outstanding observations of the cosmos since it was deployed in 1990.

"They're talking about keeping his purse".

"I will ask you father not to punish you too strictly, because you achieved the main task, worthily and convincingly", Putin said of the Dagestani fighter's fourth-round submission of McGregor. White said the UFC will allow the NSAC to conduct its hearings before making a decision on Nurmagomedov's next fight.

You'd think going after White's auto would add more punishment for Nurmagomedov after that, but then again, smashing a motorized vehicle controlled by White has never really led to serious repercussions from the UFC. "He's the world champion". So that right hand, you know... he was very disappointed he got caught with a shot like that. "You won. The guy who's yelling at you means nothing". We'll see what happens with Khabib and what's next.

Nurmagomedov's teammate at American Kickboxing Academy, Luke Rockhold, said on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday that if the UFC wants Nurmagomedov to fight a rematch, the promotion will have to pay him more than McGregor, who is by far the highest-paid fighter in MMA.
