Conor McGregor earned himself a hefty fine for his actions at the pre-fight press conference before his fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 202. On Monday the Nevada State Athletic Commission fined “The Notorious” $150,000 for his actions, which included throwing bottles and cans at Diaz and his crew.
McGregor responded in typical Conor McGregor fashion:
That’s an insane fine but the actions of Diaz and McGregor at the press conference were completely unacceptable, as fans or assembled media members could have been injured in the crossfire. Still, that’s a fantastic response to the fine.
McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight championship at UFC 205 on November 12.
