It looks as though throwing a water bottle at a press conference will land you a hefty fine.
Today, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) met to discuss the punishment that Conor McGregor will receive for throwing a water bottle at Team Diaz at the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference.
Following much deliberation, the NSAC found that a fine of $150,000 and 50 hours community service is what Conor McGregor will receive.
$150,000 & 50 hours of community service has been approved by Nevada Athletic Commission for @TheNotoriousMMA . Excessive to say the least

Prior to the deliberation, The Nevada Attorney General recommended a $25k fine & 25 hours of community service for McGregor.
The eventual fine for McGregor is 5% of his $3 million purse for his fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 where he earned a majority decision win over Diaz.
