Conor McGregor Wants Nevada Re-Hearing

Conor McGregor is requesting a rehearing over his disciplinary case with the Nevada Commission.

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is requesting a rehearing, in person, for his disciplinary hearing with the Nevada Athletic Comision over his bottle-throwing incident with Nate Diaz.

The Nevada Athletic Commission have agreed that a vote to allow the rehearing will take place at their next meeting, March 22nd. Executive Director Bob Bennett and chairman Anthony Marnell recommended in a statement released by the NAC that this requested should be granted.

Conor was fined $70,000 and given 50 hours community service as well as doing a public service announcement estimated to be worth $75,000 for the bottle throwing incident that took place prior to UFC 202.

Diaz was fined $50,000 and given 50 hours of community service also. If Conor’s punishment is reevaluated, Diaz will have his punishment reevaluated too to rebalance the scale of each fighters punishment.

McGregor’s application for a boxing license has been held up by his current judicial review. The review will have to be dealt with before the commission will issue a boxing license. This could be one of the potential last issues that need to be sorted before a super fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor can take place.
