UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov slammed for sexist comments

The former UFC champion was granted a continuance in his case regarding the post-fight brawl that occurred following his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, according to multiple outlets. The 30-year-old is also still waiting to receive punishment for the melee which marred the end of UFC 229, where he jumped out of the octagon and attacked McGregor team mate Dillon Danis. Then, Zubaira Tukhugov and Esedulla Emiragaev entered the cage to confront McGregor, and Tukugov landed a punch on McGregor from behind.

Khabib, who still has some of this UFC 229 purse withheld, is now weighing up his next bout and could follow McGregor's path and pursue a mega-money boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, although the American is preparing to face Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve.

McGregor and Khabib can not announce their next fight until their Nevada State Athletic Commission case has concluded.

Catterson also alleges that McGregor was not going after Chiesa during the bus attack, so the claims of negligence and emotional distress must be eliminated or changed to claims of battery and assault. He is now facing a fine and suspension from the NAC. Half of Nurmagomedov's $2 million disclosed purse was withheld until the case is resolved.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov had their temporary suspensions extended by the NAC until their disciplinary hearings, and both fighters have been expected by NAC chairman Anthony Marnell III to attend their hearings in person.

Danis, Tukhugov and Abubakar are all now suspended by the Nevada commission as well, pending their own disciplinary hearings.
