Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor Agree To Settlements
There is, for now, light at the end of the tunnel, with Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov reportedly agreeing to settlements. Both the fighters were involved in a melee after their UFC 229 fight. The Nevada State Athletic Commission had originally fined — and suspended — both the fighters temporarily.
As we had earlier reported, both the fighters, along with Jon Jones were scheduled to appear before the committee on January 29th. Conor and Khabib will not be in attendance tomorrow, but according to Las Vegas Review – Journal, both the fighters have agreed to settlements. The terms of their settlements haven’t been disclosed, and a five-member panel will vote tomorrow, if the commission agrees to their settlements.
Khabib’s teammates Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov have also reportedly reached settlements, and their terms will be reviewed by the commission.
Jon Jones’ case will be reviewed separately. The SAC will take a decision regarding Jones’ license in the state of Nevada, with him scheduled to defend the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship against Anthony Smith at UFC 235 inside the T-Mobile Arena.
Stay tuned, as we provide all the updates as they unfold.
