Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have bans extended following post-fight brawl

There were ugly scenes following their UFC lightweight world title fight.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will remain suspended at least until December following their UFC bout in Las Vegas, but the Nevada Athletic Commission has allowed some prize money to be released to Nurmagomedov.

The pair were caught up in ugly scenes following their UFC lightweight world title fight, which Nurmagomedov won, earlier this month.

Both will remain banned until the conclusion of an investigation into the brawl which happened at the end of the fight, Nevada Athletic Commission Chairman Anthony Marnell III said.

The commission voted to release half ($1 million) of Nurmagomedov's purse after initially holding all of his earnings.

Both fighters have been requested to attend the hearing in person.

The fracas began after Nurmagomedov earned a fourth round submission win and then leapt out of the Octagon to attack a member of McGregor's team, Dillon Danis.

McGregor was also involved in a conflict with three of Nurmagomedov's teammates inside the cage before security intervened.

The Notorious also released a statement this week where he broke down his fight round by round with Nurmagomedov, which can be read in full here.
