Conor McGregor has been granted continuance in NSAC case

Conor McGregor's legal team has had a busy few weeks.

McGregor has recently settled his lawsuit with the MGM Grand security guard who claimed he was hit by a Monster energy drink during the infamous press conference incident ahead of McGregor's UFC 202 meeting with Nate Diaz and then the Irishman's legal team filed a motion to dismiss a complaint made by fellow UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa in his lawsuit against 'The Notorious' in relation to the Brooklyn bus attack in April.

The latest move from McGregor's legal representatives has seen the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion request for a continuance in his pending Nevada State Athletic Commission case.

The commission granted McGregor's request, meaning he will not be in Las Vegas next Monday nor will his case regarding his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl be discussed at the scheduled hearing.

MMA Fighting report that McGregor will have to wait a little while longer before discovering how he will be punished for attempting to punch a member of Khabib Nurmagomedov's team after the 155lbs title fight in October.

Nurmagomedov, who has yet to be paid half of his purse for UFC 229 after jumping out of the Octagon to confront Dillon Danis, is also not expected to be in Las Vegas for next week's hearing but a continuance for 'The Eagle' has yet to be confirmed.

As well as McGregor and Nurmagomedov, several members of the rivals' teams also remain suspended for the melee which marred the biggest UFC card of 2018.

Neither McGregor nor Nurmagomedov will be booked for their next fight until their respective NSAC cases are concluded, while UFC President Dana White has hinted at something of a lightweight tournament which will see 'The Notorious' run it back with former foe Dustin Poirier and Nurmagomedov defend his title against Tony Ferguson.
