McGreg fined

LAS VEGAS (AP) – UFC star Conor McGregor has been fined $150,000 by the Nevada Athletic Commission for a profanity-laced bottle-throwing fracas with rival Nate Diaz during a pre-fight news conference in August in Las Vegas, officials said.

The commission on Monday unanimously approved the penalty representing 5 percent of the $3 million that McGregor was paid for his Aug. 20 win over Diaz in UFC 202.

Half the fine and a portion of the 50 hours of community service that McGregor was ordered to perform are expected to go toward producing an anti-bullying public service announcement, Commissioner Pat Lundvall said Tuesday.
