Conor McGregor Responds to Suspension & Fine in “Notorious” Fashion

Conor McGregor retiring

After finally receiving word on what his suspension and fine will be, as a result of the post-fight brawl at UFC 229, Conor McGregor responded to the news in very “Notorious” fashion.

As you’ve likely heard, McGregor was suspended by the Nevada Commission for six months and fined $25,000, for his role in the incident that followed his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October.

Since news of the sanctions broke, McGregor shared out these comments below:

“I am thankful for the Nevada athletic commissions fair assessment and handling of the brawl incident. It was not my intention to land the final blow of the night on my opponent’s blood relative. It’s just how it played out. I look forward to competing again soon. Thank you all.”

“Straight left hand inside the attackers jab. He attempted to use the big security guard that’s in all the movies as cover, but I could smell him a mile away and landed flush down the pipe. The final blow of the night UFC 229 in association with McGregor Sports and Entertainment.”

So, now the MMA world can truly focus on what’s next for McGregor, since he’s clear to fight again by April 6th.

Nurmagomedov’s teammates, Zubaira Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov, were suspended for one year and fined $25,000 each as a result of their actions during the melee. Khabib was suspended for nine months and was fined $500,000. He can reduce the suspension to six months if he participates in an anti-bullying campaign.
