NSAC Drastically Reduces Conor McGregor's Fine Stemming From Altercation With Nate Diaz

NSAC Drastically Reduces Conor McGregor's Fine Stemming From Altercation With Nate Diaz

The incident dates back to last August, just days before McGregor's rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Diaz and McGregor and members of their groups yelled at each other and eventually began hurling water bottles at one other. His punishment, while not as severe as McGregor's initial ruling, remains much higher.

Last October, McGregor was fined $75,000 by the NSAC and tabbed with 50 hours of community service. Surprisingly, the UFC lightweight also stated with absolute certainty that Mayweather will not be able to knock out the Irishman. After four months, the commission agreed the fine was too steep. "Good luck trying to get it".

London [U.K], Mar.21: Conor McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, has vowed to shock the boxing world by defeating unbeaten American Floyd Mayweather in a potential fight, whose deal the former claims is "very close" to being confirmed. Trouble erupted when Diaz launched a water bottle at McGregor, prior to engaging in an argument with his entourage at the press conference. On Wednesday morning, Deputy Attorney General Caroline Bateman argued that "basing an athlete's fine on a percentage of his or her disclosed purse could be unfair, based on the wide discrepancies in fighters' pay". Bennett cited gym visits and speaking to youth as an example of community service that McGregor could do to fulfill the requirements. We shall see what happens. No, I mean if he's all about business and being a punk he needs to vacate that belt but, I don't know. And just keep knocking them out and finishing them. I think it will be a case of daddy day care looking after my daughter Luisne. "And I think that's one of the main reasons the chairman decided for us to have a meeting and to make this motion for reconsideration".

More and more signs are turning up, indicating that Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather could in fact go down, and now Kevin Lee has added to that list.

It appears Diaz will also benefit from today's news. He has 6 months to complete the community service.
