Conor McGregor’s case for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl came before the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Tuesday, where his sanctioning was decided upon.
The infamous post-fight brawl occurred following months of heated exchanges between McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s camps, McGregor’s attack on a bus full of UFC fighters in Brooklyn, and his eventual loss to Nurmagomedov in the cage on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas.
Nurmagomedov leapt over the Octagon fence to engage in a physical altercation with McGregor cornerman Dillon Danis. That incited other members of both camps to engage, including two of Nurmagomedov’s seconds, who climbed into the cage to engage with McGregor.
