McGregor, Nurmagomedov agree to agree before hearing the NAC

UFC stars Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will not be present at the Nevada Athletic Commission Tuesday meeting after agreeing to their involvement in UFC 229 melee melee.

The settlement was first reported by the UBS Las Vegas Review Journal.

The terms of the settlement agreements have not yet been announced. However, instead of hearing requests from McGregor and Nurmagomedov, a five-member jury will vote on whether to accept the terms or not. Nurmagomedov employees Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov have reached settlement agreements instead of appearing at the hearing.

Both McGregor and Nurmagomedov have been in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas since the incident in question on October 6. After Nurmagomedov's fourth-round submission to McGregor at the main event of the evening, the UFC lightweight winner left the cage and joined McGregor's fool Dillon Danis. In the meantime, McGregor was involved in a physical altercation with Abubakar Nurmagomedov, Tukhugov and Esedulla Emiragaev inside the cage.

All fighters involved may be faced with suspensions and / or fines is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. His recent return to the UFC 232 competition on Dec. 29 was controversial after the NAC refused to allow him to enter competitions in Nevada, as test samples were discovered in his last 1

8 months. The UFC sought to relocate the Las Vegas event to the Los Angeles area, where the California State Athletic Commission had tested and licensed Jones less than a week before. Jones defeated Alexander Gustafsson over TKO in the UFC 232 Main Event at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Jones will receive a license from the NAC to defend his title against Anthony Smith's event, the UFC 235, which will be held on March 2 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
