Dillon Danis suspension extended after no-showing NSAC meeting in Las Vegas

MMA: Bellator 198-Danis vs Walker Dave Mandel-USA TODAY Sports

Bellator MMA welterweight attraction, Dillon Danis, will remain suspended by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl, after no-showing Wednesday’s meeting in Las Vegas.

He’s not the only one.

Also absent from the NSAC pow-wow were Zubaira Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov, who represented Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, once the shit hit the fan last October in “Sin City.”

Danis was at UFC 229 representing former UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor.

Danis, Tukhugov, and A. Nurmagomedov will be summoned for an upcoming disciplinary hearing in either December or January, according to MMA Fighting, and if they choose to skip the proceedings, then NSAC will decide their respective punishments uncontested.

McGregor is also under temporary suspension and will join Nurmagomedov on Dec. 10 to learn his fate. It’s widely believed “The Eagle” will receive the stiffest sentence, as his leap from the Octagon (see it here) is what started the post-fight debacle.

Until then, he remains king of the 155-pound throne, according to this guy.
