Proposed McGregor Vs Mayweather Clash Just Got A Massive Boost From The Nevada Athletic Commission

Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor could be about to take another huge step towards a boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather as the Nevada Athletic Commission dramatically reduces the sanction imposed following the infamous UFC 202 bottle-throwing incident with Nate Diaz.

Initial sanctions for this fracas saw fine reported to be anything from $75,000 to $150,000 imposed on McGregor. Additional to this was the order to complete 50 hours of community service.

Now, following a re-hearing of the case this week by the Nevada Athletic Commission, these sanctions have been scaled back to a $25,000 fine with 25 hours of community service, to be completed in the next six months.

Asa reported by MMA Mania, this revision reflects the originally suggested sanction put forward last October when the initial hearing took place.

In what appears to be a conciliatory move by the NAC, MMA insiders have now quickly come to one very obvious conclusion.

To those in the know, the door has now blown open for McGregor to seek the Nevada State boxing license which would then permit the much hyped, but as of yet unconfirmed, boxing match with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor’s failure to obtain a boxing license in Nevada was has been seen as a major hurdle in scheduling a clash between the pair as Las Vegas is seen as the only logical place for this mega-fight to take place.

With both fighters continuing to make noise about wanting this fight to happen, it seems now that another hurdle has been cleared and we are one step closer to what was originally thought to be a fanciful notion.

As the weeks and months pass, these notions are slowly becoming a reality.
