UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has been ordered to do 50 hours' community service for his part in a fracas at a press conference in August.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission also imposed a $150,000 (£122,000) fine on the Irishman for the incident in which he and opponent Nate Diaz threw bottles at each other at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas prior to UFC 202.

McGregor won the rematch against Diaz on points, having lost the first fight with the Californian at UFC 196 in March by submission.

Following the decision, McGregor tweeted: "I get fined more than these bums get paid."

McGregor, 28, fights Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 205 on November 12 in New York.
