According to the NSAC decision, McGregor will be eligible to return to the UFC octagon on April 6th.
Khabib has been suspended for 9 months and fined $500,000, ten times the sum of McGregor’s penalty.
Khabib will have his suspension reduced to 6-months if Nurmagomedov participates in an anti-bullying campaign
The mass brawl between the two happened following their UFC lightweight championship fight on October 6, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Don’t expect Khabib or Conor to fight until the latter half of 2019.
