Nurmagomedov was suspended from fighting for 9 months and was fined 500 thousand dollars. McGregor get suspended for six months, and fined 50 thousand dollars. The timing of the disqualifications are counted from the 6th of October.
“Is the decision of the Commission? You see, what’s the difference – and the periods of Ineligibility, and the amount of the fine. I with this decision do not agree. View – the command of Habib fined $ 550 thousand, and McGregor is just 50 thousand dollars. It is unfair, this is double standards.
To reduce the term of imprisonment is necessary in any way. Will try to do everything to the period of Ineligibility has been reduced from nine months.
I don’t know what to tell the team. We have two fights (coming) – Habib and Islam Makhachev. Somehow will try to make the most of what we can do in this situation. We’ve lost so much time waiting for the decision of the Commission already and January is over and December has passed, and November, and October. In fact, four months we lost.
Let’s see what can be done. But the decision we don’t agree with the fact that double standards are applied, it is obvious to all,” said Nurmagomedov as a senior.
As reported by the portal Znayu, Nurmagomedov wants to leave the UFC.
