LAS VEGAS — UFC fighters Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor are being suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission for a brawl that erupted inside and outside the octagon after their lightweight title fight last weekend in Las Vegas, an official said. A commission investigation is pending and the panel can extend the temporary suspension when it meets October 24, Bennett said. Members of Nurmagomedov's entourage climbed into the octagon and attacked McGregor, and McGregor also tried to climb out of the cage during the brawl. Nurmagomedov's $2 million for the fight has been withheld by the commission pending the outcome of the investigation, Bennett said. UFC President Dana White said three members of Nurmagomedov's camp were detained by police but released because McGregor refused to press criminal charges.
