NSAC Tells Conor McGregor To “Keep His Mouth Shut”, No More Trash Talk

“The commission is saying they need to take an active role in holding fighters accountable for their language and conduct at press conferences. They don’t seem happy with the dialogue from McGregor leading up to the fight. Chairman Marnell called it “embarrassing.”

“Marnell: We are going to start fining and suspending for what you say as opposed to what you do.

“Conor McGregor suspended six months, fined $50,000. Eligible to return as early as April 6.”

“Nevada State Athletic Commission has suspended Khabib Nurmagomedov nine months and fined him $500k for his role in the post-fight brawl at UFC 229 in October. Suspension can be reduced to six months if Nurmagomedov participates in an anti-bullying campaign.”

“Khabib Nurmagomedov’s teammates Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov have each received one-year suspensions and $25,000 fines. Suspensions retroactive to Oct. 6, 2018.”
