UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former two division champion Conor McGregor were scheduled to have their cases heard tomorrow by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for their roles in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
However, instead of having those cases heard tomorrow, members of the NSAC will instead vote to either accept or deny a settlement agreement that both fighters have entered in to.
Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal first reported the news and states that all five members of the panel have to vote unanimously on the settlement before they can take affect. It is unknown at this time as to exactly while the settlements entail, but that should be made known during the hearing.
Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov, both of whom were also involved in the post-fight brawl, have also reached settlements as well. It is unknown if those settlements are similar to the ones that McGregor and Khabib have reached or if they are different.
UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will also take part in the festivities tomorrow, as the panel is expected to approve or deny the title holder a license to fight in the state. Jones is expected to defend the light heavyweight title against Anthony Smith in the main event of UFC 235 on March 2.
