When Conor McGregor was punished for throwing water bottles at the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference by the Nevada State Athletic commission, you knew he wouldn’t take the punishment lying down. Now we have our answer.
The UFC lightweight champion has filed a notice for judicial review with Clark County civil court, as reported by MMAjunkie on Wednesday.
The commission fined McGregor $75,000 fine, as well as 50 hours community service, and a public-service announcement.
speaking to MMAFighting NSAC director Bob Bennett said that McGregor had applied for a boxing license in Nevada recently, but he would not be granted one until after his judicial review is done.
“Once this is resolved and if he wants to become a boxer and is requesting a license to be a boxer, at that point in time I would request a video that shows his skillset in boxing,” Bennett said. “Or, if he’s in Las Vegas, I’d be happy to go to where he’s working out and observe him training, specifically sparring.”
No date has been set for the hearing as of this article.
