Khabib Reacted To His Nine-Months Suspension With $500,000 Fine: ‘Wake Me Up When It’s All Over.’

Khabib Nurmagomedov Got The Best Response To His NSAC Suspension

UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov didn’t attend today’s (Jan. 29, 2019) hearing with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after agreeing to settlements for his involvement in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.

In today’s meeting, a five-member committee voted in favor of a settlement agreement, as a result, Khabib handed down with nine months retroactive disciplinary suspension when he jumped over the cage after defeating Mcgregor last October and coughing up $500,000 fine. Commission currently withholds Nurmagomedov’s $1 million fight purse. They will take the fine from that payday.

Khabib’s teammates Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov, who also took part in the melee were fined $25,000 and suspended for one year.

Mcgregor meanwhile, slips through with six months of suspension and fined $50,000. The suspension is retroactive to Oct. 6, 2018, that means he’s eligible to compete again by Apr. 6.

On Irishman’s suspension, UFC lightweight champion said ‘politics forever.’

A fan replied to Khabib’s tweet:

Shortly after the suspension was announced, Khabib took to social media to offer the best reaction and then took a nap.

“Wake me up, when it’s all over.”
