Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Conor McGregor Fined $25k and 25 hours of Community Service.

“Slap on the Wrist”

In a tweet earlier today by MMAJunkie Journalist Chamatkar Sandhu, it was revealed that lightweight champion Conor McGregor received a $25k fine and will have to complete 25 hours of community service as per the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

It was also revealed that his community service could come in the form of appearing at local schools and getting involved with members of the community in Dublin or Vegas. This wouldn’t exactly be a stretch for the Irishman who is regularly seen attending local events in Dublin.

This judgement is pretty much a slap on the wrist from the original $150,000 dollar price tag initially proposed, but it seems appropriate. While it’s definitely not acceptable to have violence before the fight – especially in an auditorium full of fans – ultimately it was inconsequential and no one was seriously harmed.

In case you have no idea what we’re talking about, this all started during a press conference on August 17th when UFC 202 headliners Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz got a little out of hand. Their trash talk escalated into a bottle throwing alteraction in which bystanders and members of the press were harmed.  The Nevada Attorney General referred to the incident as “A disrespect to the commission and a disrespect to the sport.”

The real question is what will this community service look like? Will it be playing “touchbutt” in the park with Gunnar Nelson, lizard walking to pick up trash, or balloon animals and ice cream floats made out of Guinness? Only time will tell. But one things for sure, Conor McGregor always keeps things interesting.

How do you think Conor McGregor should spend his community service?
