McGregor Headlines UFC 229 Medical Suspensions

Following his submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor has been handed a 30 day medical suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

While this may not be the only suspension McGregor faces following the post-fight brawl between Nurmagomedov, his team and McGregor and his team, with both fighters under investigation from the commission.

In a statement released to FIGHT SPORTS, Anthony Pettis would have the longest suspension from the bunch, as he has been medically banned from fighting for six months by the commission, due to a nasal fracture suffered in his war with Tony Ferguson. Preliminary opponents Scott Holtzman and Alan Patrick would also be put on the bench for six months due to injuries to Holtzman’s right hand and foot, and Patrick’s left orbital bone being fractured.
