Conor McGregor has been suspended from the UFC following his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The 30-year-old has been suspended on medical grounds until November 6th, with “no contact” until 28th October.

The father-of-one’s suspension comes after he tapped out during the fourth round of the highly-anticipated fight on Saturday.

Khabib has not faced a suspension though, as he passed medical examinations following the fight.

The Russian MMA star is facing bigger problems though, as he could possibly be stripped of his lightweight title and be issued with a fine as a result of the viscous brawl which occurred after the fight.

Khabib jumped out of the octagon to attack Dillon Danis seconds after the fight finished, while several of his teammates turned on Conor while he was still in the octagon.

The news comes after chairman of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Anthony Marnell, revealed that the organisation will be filing complaints against both MMA stars due to the post-fight brawl.
