Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov suspended for ten days by Nevada regulator

Nevada Athletic Commission executive Bob Bennett says letters were sent Wednesday informing both fighters they'll be suspended for ten days, effective Oct. 15.

The fighters' managers did not immediately respond Thursday to messages seeking comment.

After McGregor tapped out in the fourth round of UFC 229 on Saturday, Nurmagomedov scuffled with a fighter in McGregor's corner and members of Nurmagomedov's entourage climbed into the octagon and attacked McGregor.

Bennett says video shows McGregor also tried to climb out of the cage at T-Mobile Arena.

Bennett says the fighters can appeal his action to the commission. It meets Oct. 24.
