Watch: Conor McGregor Handed Hefty Fine By Nevada Athletic Commission

The Nevada State Athletic Commission today held their hearing over the infamous water bottle/can throwing incident that took place at the press conference ahead of UFC 202 in August.

We knew that this day had been coming for some time, but as MMAWeekly.com streamed an hour of the hearing live on their YouTube channel we were able to see exactly what went down.

After reading transcripts of the altercation, the commission judges were then shown footage of the incident from as many different angles as possible, and there was something incredibly funny about the room's silence being broken by McGregor shouting "YOU'LL DO NUTTIN'! YOU'LL DO FUCKIN' NUTTIN!"

McGregor then joined the investigation via telephone, and after being sworn in, he expressed his regret at what had happened and apologised to the commission for his actions, claiming that the circumstances were unusual as this was the biggest fight in his career.

Shortly after, the commission's recommended punishment for McGregor's actions were revealed, and amusingly one of the members suggested that the Irishman take a 'media training course'...



Now that would be some sight. The commission then went back and forth on the fine and any community service that may also be included in the punishment, as detailed by MMAFighting.com:


But eventually they came to a conclusion, and McGregor would have hoped for more leniency.

That is a hefty fine, and quite a substantial amount of community service.
