Khabib Nurmagomedov Suspension: Full Story & Must-See Details


Khabib Nurmagomedov has been punished for his role in a UFC 229 brawl that occurred after the bout and spilled outside of the cage. According to reports, Nurmagomedov has been suspended for 12 months and fined $500,000.

The suspension is retroactive, so Nurmagomedov will only need to remain on the sidelines for nine months.

“The five-strong commission agreed on Tuesday to slap perhaps the biggest name in world MMA with the half a million dollar fine, which is a quarter of his $2 million fight purse, and a 12-month suspension, backdated to the fight date, and which will expire on October 6, 2019,” the report from RT.com reads.

Nurmagomedov is currently the UFC lightweight champion.
