Ne­vada: Conor McGre­gor has been given 50 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice and fined $US150,000 (£121,000) fol­low­ing a con­fronta­tion with Nate Diaz in a press con­fer­ence. The Ne­vada Ath­letic Com­mis­sion in­ves­ti­gated McGre­gor, 28, and Diaz, 31, af­ter they threw bot­tles at each other be­fore their Ul­ti­mate Fight­ing Cham­pi­onship re­match in Au­gust. The Ir­ish­man went on to win the UFC 202 fight on points. That fol­lowed Amer­i­can Diaz’s vic­tory over McGre­gor at UFC 196 in March. McGre­gor tweeted: “I get fined more than th­ese bums get paid”. Diaz’s case will be heard at a later date.
