McGregor is currently is Las Vegas and pulled out of a scheduled meet-and-greet event in Dublin this week to go to the States to meet with the Nevada State Athletic commission.
In a previous live interview event in Manchester, the Notorious revealed that he would be jetting out to Vegas to settle his score with the NSAC.
He said: “There’s a lot of business to do out in Las Vegas. They tried to fine me $150,000 for throwing a bottle of water. It was a can but whatever. We’ll call it a bottle of water and say no more about it…
“Ah no look I’m gonna f*** this whole sh*t up again. I love the Vegas commission. We’ve come to an understanding. I’m gonna fly out there and fix it. I’m gonna get my Las Vegas boxing commission and then we’ll see where the f*** Floyd’s at?!”
