    Conor McGregor has been suspended for a month on medical grounds after his UFC 229 defeat by Khabib Nurmagomedov.

    McGregor was beaten in Las Vegas when he tapped out in the fourth round following Nurmagomedov administering a rear-naked choke.

    Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) sanctioned the bout and confirmed McGregor was suspended from fighting until 6 November, with no contact until 28 October.

    Medical suspensions are routine in UFC.

    In total, 13 fighters on the Las Vegas card have been suspended from action under medical grounds.

    Following the fight, there were violent scenes involving the fighters.

    Lightweight champion Nurmagomedov vaulted the cage and fought a member of McGregor's team.

    Meanwhile, McGregor was involved in a bust-up in the octagon with members of his Russian opponent's team.

    Three of Nurmagomedov's party were arrested but later released, with McGregor refusing to press charges.

    Meanwhile, Nurmagomedov's fight purse has been withheld while the NSAC investigates.

    The Russian apologised following the incident but cited pre-fight trash talk in which McGregor "talked about my religion, talked about my country, talked about father".

    Conor McGregor is a great fighter and an ex-champion.

    I refuse to buy the argument that he was rusty etc. He was prepared both mentally and physically, believe me. He applied Sun Tzu's Art of War for the A to the Z. Did he homework, got personal info, incited Khabib, promoted his whisky, worked with greatest coaches/information money can buy. Both fighters were 30 years old and at their absolute prime.

    BUT

    as they say: "there be dragons" or in this case: "there be bears".

    He was mauled, knocked down, slapped, punched, thumped, humbled and submitted by brute force.

    It is funny how some quickly he apologized

    His corner got what they deserved. Don't forget Connor threw the first punch on the fence to Khabib's corner during after fight brawl.

    Khabib is the biggest MMA star in the world right now. He'll make some serious money and In Sha Allah will retire as the GOAT; à la Muhammad Ali.

    Objectively speaking, he was coming off a long lay off and that is a fact. However, he was dominated for majority of the fight apart from Rd 3 so there's an argument to be made that a couple of training camps behind him may not have mattered. But no one can tell me that they wouldn't enhance preparation, you can do all the sparring and strength/conditioning but nothing beats being active when you've been away for a while, this is why fighters at times have tune ups instead which is the smarter thing to do instead of going straight into a big fight. Dana on the other hand looks to cash out as fast as he possibly can.

    Conor had what was coming for his shameless behaviours, but those punches which were thrown on the fence were after Khabib had left the Octagon; there is plenty of footage from much better angles which highlight that. Lets not paint him as some hero for his actions, he talks about bringing respect back but MMA is still essentially seen by the mainstream as two barbarians having a brainless knock and stuff like that doesn't help; all involved are to blame including the organisers who promoted the fight using criminal footage, that's how desperate the company has been as of late when you look at the PPV numbers drying up.

    What I find extremely disrespectful, it doesn't matter to me if it's Khabib or Anthony Joshua; their casual fans while they can be good for business are so damn moronic it just boils my blood, how easily they are willing to even mention these names in the same sentence as Muhammad Ali is just sickening on so many levels it just makes me puke to be honest.

    @shaz619 I can understand you find it disrespectful but unfortunately, we the casual fans, are like that.

    For example, whenever a short young batsman is scoring (UA, AS or Shaw) they are compared to SRT; lefties to Lara or Left Arm fast to Akram etc etc.

    I mean Ali was on a different planet when it comes to sheer athletic ability, boxing IQ or heart. It's only meant as a complement.

    Objectively speaking, not many can last until 4th round with Khabib.

    Conor received fists of doom but he lasted and lasted. Kudos to him for that. That's why I'm saying he was well prepared.

    No publicity is bad publicity. Believe me that fence jump was worth millions of dollars per second for the UFC brand.

    Mourinho poked his fingers in Pep's assistant coach's eye during a Clásico People, secretly, love this kind of stuff.

    That's just an opinion of yours isn't it because there are fighters who have lasted the distance against him but I am talking about combat, if you believe that a fighters prep can not be enhanced by having tune ups after a long lay off prior to a super fight then ya"ll are either some super human alien athletes that have been dominating the fighting game in an alternate universe for decades or it's just simple ignorance due to a lil fandom, but relax it's not the battle of badr; most of you probably don't even pray 5 times a day But beyond that am not ruling out that it may not have been relevant when it comes to the outcome but am referring to prep here.

    Am not talking about publicity, sure the UFC will do an even bigger buy rate in the rematch but it doesn't necessarily get rid of all the stereotypes associated with MMA. Bruce Lee would spit in the UFC's face.

    I enjoyed it to, even better then WWE the whole build and post fight angle, obviously the action was 'real' to great overall package

    What are you talking about exactly? The pre-fight promo, sure that was acting, but there was an actual fight where he laid a beat down, not a fake one.

    Not the fight itself. The pre and post fight shenanigans.

    finally got to see the match and then my youtube recommends just filled up with all sorts of nonsense. From connor apologists to testosterone fuelled Muslims chest thumping. The fight wa a great fight but the rest was just a big tamasha and as usual Muslims fall for it hook line and sinker..

    ^ @srh Not necessarily. The possible fine will be an investment for future.

    He's already make more money in endorsements than the fight purse

    Heck, I read somewhere, he's got more than 10 million Instagram followers post fight.

    Conor was most likely putting it on but Khabib took things to heart so I feel his reaction was real which is why Conor told him midfight while he was getting pounded that "it's only business".

    Dana has already confirmed he will be champion. Probably receive a 6 month ban and return to defend his title against Ferguson. He will also be fined so wont receive all his purse but will get a good cut from pay per view sales. Also as said he will earn a lot more in future fights now.

    I think he's getting 2 mil and will pay a 250 k fine, not bad imo. Khabib's a simple country boy from the mountains I don't think he cares about the money as much, like he said he's here for the legacy.

    Agree, it's not much of loss in terms of money. Imo he can be the Mayweather of UFC, it wasnt the fact Conor was poor , it was Khabib being brilliant. There is no man in his division who can even compete with him, let alone beat him. Tony Ferguson is a good fighter but against Khabib it would be man against boy. Dana white needs to realise his brilliance and make a lot of fights for him, UFC will become huge worldwide.

    Yeah plus he's got the tough dagestani guy appeal and that huge muslim fanbase. As for Ferguson, I think it's gonna be a tough contest and I'm afraid he might beat Khabib but it's definitely going to be an interesting fight.

    Nobody takes Conor seriously.

    But a good move by Putin, he knows the Russian people would take pride in having a champion and is showing them he personally met and congratulated him. I think both men have mutual respect for each other.

    Speak for yourself.

    The pre-fight was fake, the post-fight was real.

    MMA is so much more interesting than boxing IMO, and the numbers are starting to show. Khabib & Connor did Mayweather numbers, and that is one of, if not the best boxers of all time.

    Khabib had an excellent fight. If you don't like it, that's on you, but most people I know, whether it be casuals or die-hards would much prefer MMA. The Tony Ferguson fight was a bloodbath, and then Khabib was a beat down. Boxing matches are snoozefests.

    Again, my opinion, so to each their own.

    He doesn't care about the UFC's money because he has a Russian billionaire (Ziyavudin Magomedov) backing him up. Of course he cares about money, he just doesn't need the UFC's because he has a huge endorser already, though his endorser was arrested recently on embezzlement charges so that might be an issue moving forward.

    Western culture is very different from Khabib's, he's jist paying respect to the head of state. Khabib is from Dagestan where they have to respect elders and other authority figures, it's not America where conor can say "fook trump" and it wouldn't be an issue. Neither is wrong just different.
