McGregor meets with NSAC to discuss fine reduction

14 Feb, 2017

McGregor, along with his attorneys and manager, meets Bennett and Mantell of the Nevada State Athletic Commission in Las Vegas, to ask for a rehearing of punishment order for  throwing a water bottle at UFC 202. McGregor has said that the punishment — a $75,000 fine, an anti-bullying public service announcement with a production value of $75,000, and 50 hours of community service — was too stiff. Chairman Bennett says he agrees with McGregor’s position and says the punishment should be reduced to $25,000 fine plus 25 hours of community service. The commission will hear McGregor’s request when it reconvenes on March 22. Once a settlement has been agreed, McGregor can reapply for a boxing license. Bennett:

I think it’s important that the public knows that the chairman, upon speaking with Conor, realized a wrong was done and he’d like to make it right. We don’t always get it right. We’ve made mistakes in the past. The chairman lives by example.
