Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have been suspended indefinitely by the Nevada State Athletic Commission pending the outcome of the investigation into the brawl that followed their UFC bout last month.
Moments after Conor McGregor's tap out in the fourth round of UFC 229 at the T-Mobile Arena, the Russian jumped out of the Octagon and attacked his opponent's jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis, while the Dubliner was involved in a bust-up with a member of Nurmagomedov's team before they were tackled by security.
The ugly scenes meant that Nurmagomedov was not presented with his belt in the Octagon, while White later revealed that the NSAC has withheld his fight payment pending an investigation. McGregor, however, collected his fee after being cleared of any wrongdoing.
Both fighters were handed temporary suspensions which have now been extended until a disciplinary hearing on December 10, while the NSAC has voted to release half of Nurmagomedov's fight purse.
Nevada Athletic Commission chairman Anthony Marnell said: "I have felt half was a good enough amount of money, to release a million dollars, that should cover all expenses, give the fighter some money.
"At the same time, it's still a very substantial amount of money to be withheld, until we can get to the case in December and get all of the testimony or potentially we get a settlement agreement.
"Who knows how that will go over the next 60 days, but it's enough money to keep this contestant's interest in this hearing."
Both fighters have been requested to attend the hearing.
