The next fights for UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former two-division champ Conor McGregor will take place in a hearing room at the Grant Sawyer Building in Las Vegas. Both fighters have been served with formal complaints ahead of their Dec. 10 disciplinary hearings in front of the Nevada Athletic Commission.
