Arman Tsarukyan Suspended, Fined For A UFC 300 Fan Altercation

Arman Tsarukyan has been fined and suspended for an altercation with a fan at UFC 300.

The incident took place before his win over Charles Oliveira at UFC 300. However, the win was marred by the following incident. The clip shows the UFC lightweight appearing to punch a fan as he walked out for his fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has given Tsarukyan a 9-month suspension, which could become six months, a $25,000 fine and $471.12 for the relevant legal fees. The NSAC also increased Igor Severino’s suspension to 9 months, a further three months, for biting Andre Lima.

He was also fined $2,000 and $471.12 for the relevant legal fees. The news means Tsarukyan can fight on January 12, 2025. It is a huge blow as Tsarukyan is the number-one-ranked contender to fight UFC Lightweight Champion Islam Makhachev.
