The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) have voted unanimously to extend its temporary suspensions of Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov following their part in the post-fight brawl.

An investigation into the chaos following the UFC 229 fight is ongoing and the NSAC voted to extend those suspensions indefinitely until the investigation is over and formal complaints are filed.

Speaking to ESPN, Conor McGregor’s manager, Auddie Attar, said that he is confident the investigation will end favourably for his client.

“I understand that the Nevada State Athletic Commission is doing a thorough investigation, which I am confident will benefit my client, Conor McGregor.”

Both McGregor and the Russian fighter were suspended for 10 days on October 15.

The commission did agree to release a portion of Khabib’s winning purse which has been frozen since the fight. He will receive $1 million. McGregor was given his total purse straight away.

Though unlikely, there is no limit on the final punishment the NSAC could levy on Nurmagomedov and McGregor, meaning a lifetime ban could be imposed as per Nevada regulations.
