McGregor & Diaz Will Not Be Punished For UFC 196 Press Conference Incident

As you can see in the video above, things got heated between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz at the pre-fight press conference for UFC 196. McGregor swatted Diaz’s hand away from him, then the two and their respective camps had to be separated.

The Nevada Athletic Commission announced on Friday that they would not be reprimanding anyone following the scuffle.

“UFC president Dana White handled the situation,” Bob Bennett, NAC executive director said in a statement.

Back in 2014, a much more physical press conference incident between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones resulted in fines and community service for both men.

Diaz did not suffer any type of wrist injury from the contact.
