Martial Arts – UFC: Conor McGregor Suspended
Conor McGregor has been suspended for 1 month on medical grounds after his UFC 229 annihilation by Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor was beaten in Las Vegas when he tapped out in the fourth round after Nurmagomedov directed a neck choke.
Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) endorsed the fight and affirmed that McGregor was suspended from battling until 6 November, with no contact until 28 October.
Altogether, 13 professional fighters on the Las Vegas card have been suspended from activity under medicinal grounds.
Following the battle, there were fierce scenes involiving around the two fighters Khabib and Conor.
Lightweight boss Nurmagomedov vaulted the octagan and battled a member of McGregor’s team. In the interim, McGregor was associated with a beat down in the octagon with individuals from his Russian rival’s group.
Three of Nurmagomedov’s group were captured yet later discharged, with McGregor declining to squeeze charges.
This is so misleading. Fighters who take a beating always get medically suspended, sometimes for up to 6 months. It’s not related to what happened after the fight whatsoever. Hack journalism from @MirrorSport #UFC https://t.co/NW4QaC2EdT

Urg! “Conor McGregor suspended” is not a headline. It’s clickbait. He is medically suspended, along with most of the fighters from the same event. It’s not for his behaviour/antics; it’s a normal, everyday thing in fighting. Bloggers are not journalists. Period.
