Conor McGregor vows to never fight in Nevada again after $150k fine

Published

on

UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has vowed to never fight in Las Vegas again after being fined $150,000 by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Monday for the infamous water bottle throwing incident with Nate Diaz prior to UFC 202.

UFC president Dana White appeared on the Herd show early today and told Colin Cowherd that McGregor contacted him yesterday and stated he never wants to fight in Nevada again.

“Conor McGregor hit me up yesterday and said, ‘I don’t ever want to fight in Nevada again. Ever,'” White said. “How does that make sense for the state of Nevada? That you’re gonna try to fine this kid and Nate that kind of money, it just makes people not want to come fight in our state. And that’s not a good thing.”

“Guess what?” White said. “Conor McGregor doesn’t need Nevada. He can fight anywhere. He can fight in Iowa, OK? We can put his fight on an island off the coast of anywhere. This makes no sense for the state. It’s terrible.”

McGregor was fined 5% of his 3 million dollar purse by the commission and he will also serve 50 hours of community service for his actions. Both McGregor and Diaz were involved in the altercation when both sides threw water bottles at each other prior to UFC 202. Dana White has said the fine posed to McGregor is ‘insane’.

Nate Diaz will appear before the commission in the near future to face disciplinary action. McGregor will face Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight title on November 12th in Madison Square Garden in New York City. It will be the first ever UFC card in the city and if McGregor stays true to his word New York could become the new home for McGregor’s future fights.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions.

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
