Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will apparently both be hit with a suspension.
According to Bleacher Report, both UFC stars will be suspended October 15. A hearing will be held later in the month to determine if they should be suspended indefinitely following the investigation into the post-fight melee at UFC 229.

If McGregor gets suspended post the upcoming here, UFC fans should riot. He’s not the one who jumped out of the octagon and started swinging on people. That was Khabib and his crew. McGregor was attacked by one of the Russian star’s teammates while in the octagon after the fight. Why the hell should he be punished at all? (RELATED: Conor McGregor

As for Khabib, that dude needs to be hit with a serious punishment. He was out of control last Saturday night, and there’s no other way to describe it. What the hell was he thinking?
Absolutely wild McGregor no so innocent after all

This seems pretty cut and dry to me. One of them stayed in the octagon and one of them didn’t. How is this situation even under review? Hammer Khabib and let McGregor go. If that’s not how this goes down, Dana White needs to step in and pull the necessary strings.
