Conor McGregor’s fighting future will continue to be drawn out as the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has granted the Irishman a continuance.

McGregor was expected to appear before the commission on Monday, Dec. 10. He was set for a hearing for his role in the post-fight mayhem following his UFC 229 main-event loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October. However, the Irishman won’t be in attendance next week because his legal representatives filed for a continuance in the case and it was granted.

MMAFighting.com was the first to report on the McGregor continuance and MMAJunkie.com later confirmed the initial report.

The NSAC filed formal disciplinary complaints against both McGregor and Nurmagomedov last week. Thus setting the stage for their Dec. 10 hearing in Las Vegas.

What McGregor Is Accused Of

The commission has accused McGregor of refusing to comply with “valid orders to return to the octagon canvas” after attempting to jump over the cage into the gallery where Nurmagomedov and Danis fought.

McGregor’s actions also constitute “foul or unsportsmanlike conduct” and a violation of state law.

Potential Punishments

As far as potential punishments for Nurmagomedov and McGregor, they are subject to NSAC bylaws that allow the commission to suspend or revoke their licenses. The commission can also issue up to a lifetime ban and withhold 100 percent of their purses or $250,000, whichever is greater. The fighters are also responsible for attorney’s fees and other punishments the commission sees fit.

Nurmagomedov and McGregor remain temporarily suspended pending their cases. Both men have also been ordered to attend the hearing in person.

What Dana Thinks

UFC President Dana White fully expects both lightweights to be suspended. Thus matchmakers have held off confirmation of any booking until the resolution of their cases. Earlier this week, White eluded to a nightmare scenario in which a one-year suspension would be handed out to Nurmagomedov. A situation White said would be “unfair.”

This isn’t the first time McGregor has had run-ins with the commision. He was fined $50,000 for throwing a water bottle at Nate Diaz during a UFC 202 press conference. His punishment was reduced to $25,000 and ordered to perform 25 hours of community service.

Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is still staying active in the gym.

Following his October loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Irishman is still working out in his spare time, hitting mitts. Recently, McGregor took to his Instagram page to share a touching video of himself, his one-year-old son, and his father all training together.

The video stars with Conor hitting a series of pads, then it moves to Conor Jr. hitting a mini punching bag of his own, dancing after he gives it a whack. And finally, Conor McGregor’s father, Tony, is shown getting some striking work in himself. Check out the video here:

Away from the Octagon, McGregor has been working to promote his new Proper 12 Irish Whiskey. He has expressed interest in rematching Khabib when he returns to the Octagon. However, if that isn’t an option, the Irishman is willing to face the next man in line first.

It remains to be seen how long McGregor will wait before returning to the cage, but as always, it will certainly be a grand affair.

Khabib Nurmagomedov addresses some rumors that have been making the rounds about him potentially walking away and going into retirement early. This would be an interesting move for the UFC lightweight champion, who is on top of his division in the Las Vegas-based promotion.

Over the past few weeks, Nurmagomedov’s manager has claimed to have some big and exciting news on the way involving the UFC lightweight champion. What that big news remains to be unseen. However, as a result of this teaser, fight fans have speculated about various things.

The UFC champion spoke with the media in Russia at a press conference on Monday. This is where he talked about the idea he could hang up his gloves.

‘To me every fight is the last fight,’ Nurmagomedov said (H/T to Metro). ‘I feel that in every fight, and then they start calling you and you start getting ready. I have been thinking about it, I’m 30.”

Before Khabib can do anything, he must face his punishment when he finds out actual sanctions from the NSAC later this year. The commission will meet on December 10th to give a decision on his involvement in the UFC 229 brawl with Conor McGregor.

Nurmagomedov continued to state at this presser that he feels that he’s still in the peak of his career. Thus, it’s not time in his mind to hang up his gloves.

‘Life goes on and I don’t want to be beaten. You have to live when you’re on top, and it’s not just me saying this. ‘It’s always been like this. When you’re at your peak, you can never get back to your top form. But for right now, I’m okay. I can go on.’
