Well Conor McGregor's pre-fight/press conference antics have finally caught up to him, as he received a $150,000 fine and 50 hours of community as a punishment from NSAC today for his water bottle incident with Nate Diaz before UFC 202. Diaz was scheduled to have his conference last week, but it was postponed, but the assumption is that Nate will receive a similar punishment to Conor, who was fined 5% of his fight purse from 202, which equaled out to $150,000 of his record setting $3 million purse. Diaz will likely be $100,000 of his 2$, and assumedly 50 hours of community service himself.
This whole situation was definitely blown out of proportion in my opinion, and only because of the fact that the fans were involved because one was "hit" by a water bottle. Nate & Conor both bring a fire and passion to this sport that cannot be controlled, and that was evident as the two fighters and their camps almost came to blows at the pre-fight presser.
Hopefully this blows over and this is the end of the debacle, once Nate too gets his punishment, and maybe these two can just stick to verbal wars, not plastic water bottles.
