Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Ne­vada fight reg­u­la­tors ex­tended the suspensions of UFC fighters Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGre­gor, but al­lowed some prize money to be re­leased to Nurmagomedov fol­low­ing a brawl in­side and out­side the Oc­tagon af­ter their match in Las Ve­gas. Ne­vada Ath­letic Com­mis­sion chair­man An­thony Mar­nell III said Wednes­day the suspensions will last un­til an in­ves­ti­ga­tion is com­plete and the two fighters are re­quired to at­tend a Dec. 10 dis­ci­plinary hear­ing in Las Ve­gas. The five-mem­ber board voted unan­i­mously on the suspensions and the re­lease of US$1 mil­lion of the $2 mil­lion with­held from Nurmagomedov im­me­di­ately af­ter the Oct. 6 brawl at T-Mo­bile Arena.
