The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has approved reduction in the suspension sentences of Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov, both Khabib Nurmagomedov’s training partners, by 35 days. However, they are required to complete community service of ten hours.
Talking to MMA Junkie NSAC Director Bob Bennett said:
“Provided it is significant and productive for the youth, upon my approval and recommendation to the commission, the commission would then reduce their suspension 35 days, thus allowing them to fight on or after after Sept. 2.”
Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov’s Manager Ali Abdelaziz in an interview said:
“It’s been a rough process that cost us a lot of money and time. I’m glad it’s over. Now Abubakar and Zubaira can get back to do what they love to do and pursue their dreams.”
“I want to thank Mr. Hunter Campbell for his help throughout the process. Without him this couldn’t happen.”
