UFC president Dana White joined TMZ Sports tonight and was asked whether Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will be reprimanded for the incident, in which a child was allegedly hit with a projectile.
“They’re both getting punished,” White said. “What everybody’s gotta understand is .. we’re overseen by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I guarantee both of these guys will get massive fines. And there’s probably gonna be a hearing too after the fight.”
White says both guys could be hit with suspensions and community service — “It’s gonna be ugly.”
“And the word is that in this thing, somebody was injured. So, there’s gonna be a lawsuit … who knows how it’s gonna play out.”
White didn’t say who is filing the suit — but says “the wheels are in motion on it.”Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Shaun Al-Shatti & Nate Stark.
