Judges/Referee Assigned For Conor-Khabib
The Nevada State Athletic Commission has assigned the third man in the cage and the three people set to score Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s highly anticipated showdown at UFC 229.
Herb Dean has been assigned by NSAC for the lightweight title showdown on October 6th, where Nurmagomedov will make his first title defense against McGregor who was stripped of the title in April due to inactivity.
Dean will be paid $1,900 for his work in the main event, where McGregor will fight in the UFC for the first time in two years, as he faces off against his rival Nurmagomedov, nearly six months after McGregor and over a dozen associates would attack a bus holding Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 Media Day.
Judges assigned for the title bout are Derek Cleary, Sal D’Amato and Junichiro Kamijo who each will receive $1,600 for their work.
