The Nevada Athletic Commission (NSAC) isn’t happy with Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Due to their actions during UFC 229, both McGregor and Nurmagomedov will receive 10-day suspensions from the NSAC. Those suspensions could go even longer depending on the organization’s investigation, according to Ariel Helwani of ESPN.

The 10-day suspensions will begin Oct. 15. The NSAC plans to vote at a hearing Oct. 24 to determine whether McGregor and Nurmagomedov will be suspended indefinitely.

Both men are under investigation after a brawl broke out following their fight at UFC 229. After defeating McGregor, Nurmagomedov jumped out of the octagon to attack one of McGregor’s teammates. McGregor threw punches at a member of Nurmagomedov’s team as well.

The NSAC is withholding Nurmagomedov’s $2 million paycheck for his actions following the win. McGregor has already been paid.
