McGregor Challenging UFC 202 Fine

Though it may be a long time until we see Conor McGregor in the octagon again, the superstar is still in the news. MMAjunkie’s Steven Marrocco is reporting that McGregor has submitted a petition for a judicial review of sanctions the Nevada State Athletic Commission laid down following an incident at the UFC 202 Press conference.

The NSAC fined McGregor $150,000 and ordered him to serve 50 hours of community service, "10 percent of which was to go toward his participation in an NSAC-branded public-service announcement on anti-bullying," for his conduct at the press conference. McGregor tossed several water bottles in the direction of his opponent Nate Diaz, though footage seemed to show Diaz instigating the confrontation with a bottle toss of his own. 

McGregor went on to defeat Diaz via majority decision to avenge his March loss to the 31-year-old.

"I just want to apologize for the incident; it was a very unusual incident that unfolded. I acted wrong, and all I can say is I’m sorry," McGregor said in October.
