Conor McGregor has found out his fate following his pre-fight altercations with Nate Diaz during the UFC 202 press conference.
The two clashed on the stage at the press conference with bottles and cans being thrown between the two.
An expensive throw
McGregor was apologetic and humble when he met with the Nevada State Athletic Commission where he took responsibility for his role in the pre- fight events.

Diaz's meeting regarding the events has been given a continuance until their November meeting, but McGregor has learnt his fate.
Once it was announced that he would be given a $150,000 fine for the events that unfolded, he lost his sense of humbleness and took to Twitter.
In a move that is sure to outrage the entire UFC roster, McGregor had an interesting opinion on his fine.
McGregor is certainly one of the most highly paid stars on the UFC roster, but sharing an opinion like this on Twitter is unlikely to win him many friends.
McGregor likely won't care about making friends and with him having previously boasted that he is set to earn $40 million in 2016, Monday's fine shouldn't make a huge dent in his earnings.
The Notorious will be taking on Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 as he goes after his Lightweight title next month.
