Conor McGregor appears satisfied with the ruling made by the Nevada State Athletic commission.

The Irishman was handed a six month suspension — retroactive to October 6 — and a $50,000 fine for his involvement in a post fight brawl in the T-Mobile Arena. Due to the retroactive nature of the suspension, he’ll be eligible to compete in April.

And, according to McGregor, the verdict found by the commission was a fair and reasonable response to the actions made at UFC 229.

“I am thankful for the Nevada athletic commissions fair assessment and handling of the brawl incident,” McGregor wrote on his social media. “It was not my intention to land the final blow of the night on my opponent’s blood relative. It’s just how it played out. I look forward to competing again soon. Thank you all.”

McGregor’s next fight is uncertain, but it seems a meeting with Donald Cerrone could be on the cards.
