When Featherweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor is on the card, entertainment is guaranteed. Whether you love him or hate him, the rowdy Dubliner draws attention that other fighters envy and promoters love.
Unfortunately for the champ, that attention can be costly. Case in point: the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) recently fined Conor $150,000 for throwing bottles at Nate Diaz before their fight at UFC 202. It also gave him 50 hours worth of community service.

Predictably, Conor was less than apologetic and took to Twitter immediately to taunt the boys and girls in the NSAC.
I get fined more than these bums get paid

Fans of the pugnacious Irishman can see him fight next month when he takes on Eddie Alvarez in a lightweight championship super fight at UFC 205.
