McGregor will have to open up his wallet for the incident after the NSAC ordered that McGregor pay a $150,000 fine, which is 5 percent of his $3 million disclosed pay and also was given 50 hours of community service. According to MMA Fighting, McGregor will have to participate in an “anti-bullying campaign for the commission.”

The fine came after a unanimous vote from the commission for the incident that took place at the UFC 202 presser at Copperfield Theater inside the MGM Grand.

Nate Diaz will have his hearing at a later date for his involvement in the incident.
