Conor McGregor has branded his six month ban from the UFC as "fair".

The Notorious has also been fined €38,000 for the unsavoury scenes after his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov last October.

He tweeted: "I am thankful for the Nevada Athletic Commission's fair assessment and handling of the brawl incident."

Nurmagomedov received a nine-month suspension and a €380,000 fine for his involvement in the post-fight melee.

Posting a picture of the brawl, the Dubliner added, "straight left hand inside the attacker's jab.

"He attempted to use the big security guard that's in all the movies as cover, but I could smell him a mile away and landed flush down the pipe."

"The final blow of the night UFC 229 in association with McGregor Sports and Entertainment."

McGregor appears to accepted the ban, but his opponents team still protest their man's innocence, with Nurmagomedov himself tweeting "politics forever" as two members of his team were also banned for their involvement.

The Russian's ban will be cut by three months only if he partakes in an anti-bullying campaign in Nevada - but his manager Ali Abdelaziz argues that Khabib was not the bully.
