Even After Receiving Their Suspensions And Fines Both UFC Stars Are Continue To Firing Shots At Eachother
NSAC hearing was held on January 29 where both Khabib and Conor finally received penalties for their involvement in disgraceful UFC 229 post-fight incident.
Khabib Nurmagomedov was fined with $500,000 dollars and a nine-month suspension, which could be reduced to six months if he completes an anti-bullying program.
On the other side, “Mystic Mac” slipped through with $50,000 and he won’t step inside the Octagon for six months.
But things are far from over between two angry rivals. Conor McGregor posted a very interesting photo and status on his Twitter account to troll “Eagle”. “The Notorious” described “a perfect left straight counter punch”.
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.

Khabib Nurmagomedov fired back at Conor’s provocation and reminded The Irishman who landed the final blow of UFC 229 and also took a shot at NSAC’s “anti-bullying” proposal.

Even a few months after UFC 229, things are still heated up, as both fighters very often go back and forth on social media.
If he doesn’t complete an anti-bullying campaign, “Eagle” will be eligible to fight again in the summer of 2019.
But the undefeated Dagestani said he was done with matches in Las Vegas. Actually, Khabib targets November return in New York City! Read the tweet below!
Just reported on @SportsCenter: Khabib Nurmagomedov is “done” fighting in NV due to the one-year suspension they handed his teammates today, his mgr Ali Abdelaziz said. He will also not fight until their suspensions are over and is now targeting a return to action at MSG in Nov.

On the other side, Conor McGregor accepted Donald Cerrone’s callout, but nothing is officially set yet.
What do you think, will Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor meet again?
