Conor McGregor was fined $150,000 by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Monday evening, for his role in the UFC 202 press conference fracas.

Conor McGregor has received a heavy sanction from the Nevada Athletic Commission for his role in the UFC 202 press conference debacle in August, in which he threw bottles of water and cans of Monster Energy at Nate Diaz and his camp.

McGregor will have to complete 50 hours of community service, and pay 5% of his purse for the fight.

McGregor apologised for the incident over the phone at the hearing.

However, he has taken aim the the rest of the UFC roster, making light of the fact that the sizeable fine, which was 5% of his purse for the fight, amounts to more than the other fighters usually get paid in total.
