Conor Mcgregor Reacts To His NSAC Punishment: ‘I Look Forward To Competing Again Soon’

Yesterday (Tues, 29, 2019) Nevada Athletic Commission handed out former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor Mcgregor six months of suspension and fined him with $50,000 for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.

Khabib Nurmagomedov meanwhile, received nine months of suspension with whopping $500,000 fine. However, ‘Eagle’ has an opportunity to knock down three months if he’d agree to do an anti-bullying public service video.

UFC lightweight champion’s team isn’t very happy with the punishment and his manager Ali Abdelaziz reacted to a difference in McGregor, Khabib’s fines, stating it’s bullshit. Moreover, Ali said Nurmagomedov is “done” fighting in Nevada. It’s not he’s upset on his punishment but rather very disappointed with teammates Zubaira Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov’s one-year suspensions and $25,000 fines.

Early Wednesday morning, Conor Mcgregor took to Twitter and said he’s happy how commission handled the matter.

“I am thankful for the Nevada athletic commissions fair assessment and handling of the brawl incident,” the post read. “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.”

Irishman also doubled down on his statement said it wasn’t his intentions to land the final blow of the night in another tweet.

McGregor suffered a fourth-round submission loss to Khabib back in October.

‘Notorious’ will be eligible to return to Octagon in April once his suspension ends. McGregor and Donald Cerrone are interested in fighting each other, but according to renowned boxing coach Freddie Roach, Georges St-Pierre wants one last fight against Mcgregor.

Who do you think McGregor fight next?
