Nate Diaz Punishment Handed Down for UFC 202 Bottle-Throwing Incident

During the UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor 2 pre-fight press conference on Aug. 17, Nate Diaz abruptly walked off stage. As he walked through the crowd of onlookers shouting expletives and making obscene gestures toward McGregor, the two began hurling water bottles at each other.

On Thursday, the Nevada Athletic Commission handed Diaz his punishment for the incident.

Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor - UFC 202 Weigh-inDiaz has agreed to pay 2.5-percent of his fight purse ($50,000) and perform 50 hours of community service. He’ll have to pay the fine before his next fight, or before Feb. 1, 2017, whichever occurs first. His community service must be performed before Dec. 1, 2017.

“In the event the Commission determines that Diaz has breached the terms of this agreement by failing to perform the obligations set forth, the Commission shall order him suspended for a term of not less than 18 months,” read the agreement.

Diaz did not attend Thursday’s meeting, but he and his lawyer, Sam Awad, each signed the agreement. 

Diaz lost to McGregor in the UFC 202 rematch by majority decision and has not competed since.
