The futures of probably the biggest stars in the history of the sport in former double champ Conor McGregor and lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov with respect to their UFC 229 post-fight choas was decided in a meeting of Nevada Athletic Commission couple of weeks ago.

The NAC issued a nine-month suspension and a six-month suspension to Nurmagomedov and McGregor respectively. Nurmagomedov’s suspension can be reduced to six months if he chooses to enroll in an anti-bullying program. NAC also fined Nurmagomedov $500,000, while McGregor only $50,000.

That obviously didn’t go well with Nurmagomedov as speaking in an interview with Russian-language website Sportbox.ru, the lightweight champ called out the hypocrisy of the NSAC.

“The state of Nevada is where drugs, prostitution and gambling are officially permitted,” Nurmagomedov (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC) said. “Let them work on themselves.” Nurmagomedov also dismissed the offer of participating in the anti-bulling program to reduce his suspension by three months.

Nurmagomedov also revealed that he is planning a hiatus until November and is targeting a super fight against former double champ Georges St-Pierre at Madison Square Garden. A fight against former interim champion Tony Ferguson and a rematch against Conor McGregor has always been associated with Nurmagomedov however that might as well be delayed.
