NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett will suggest what action he believes the NSAC should take, but it is going to be up to the counsel as a whole to make a decision as to what punishment(s) that McGregor and Nurmagomedov will get.

Nurmagomedov has been accused of refusing to comply with orders from the NSAC during the brawl, while also been accused of striking McGregor’s cornermen, security guards and UFC personnel.
