Dana: Khabib May Lose $2 Million Purse

UFC President Dana White spoke with TMZ on Monday, following the massive brawl that followed the main event of UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

While still knee deep inside the fallout of the fight, confirmed that not only is the Nevada Athletic Commission withholding Khabib Nurmagomedov’s purse from UFC 229, they are talking about potentially keeping it as a fine.

“They took his whole purse right now and they’re talking about keeping his purse,” the UFC honcho said on “TMZ Live.”

“You should not be able to keep his whole purse.”

White does believe if the fine does come down, it will be closer to $250,000 and not his entire fight pay, on-top of what could be a 4-6 month suspension.
