'I get fined more than these bums get paid' - McGregor reacts to severe UFC 202 presser fine
The Notorious was fined $150,000 by the Nevada Athletic Commission after the infamous bottle-throwing incident at the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference.
The Dubliner was lumped with a substantial fine over the fracas at the presser, as well as a heap of community service hours:

The UFC featherweight champion was unlikely to take the hit lying down.
In typicial McGregor fashion, he lambasted the NAC's decision to land him with such a hefty financial punishment:

It would seem suggestions that the Crumlin fighter required media training were taken with a pinch of salt.
These are the scenes that led to McGregor's fine:
