Nevada Attorney General's Office files complaint against Conor McGregor following press conference incident

He and Nate Diaz are in trouble...

UFC 202 will go down as one of the most successful MMA events in history with PPV figures showing it will be one of the top three highest selling UFC events of all time with some news organisations reporting it the biggest ever.

But it seems that all the buzz McGregor and Diaz created for the fight has landed them in some hot water. More specifically, the infamous press conference where Nate Diaz walked out and all hell broke loose with water bottles and cans of energy drink being thrown by McGregor and the Diaz entourage.

Direct complaints against Diaz and McGregor have been filed by the Nevada Attorney General's Office as first reported by ESPN.

The complaint alleges that the pair were engaging in acts which were "detrimental to a contest or exhibition of unarmed combat."

The shemozzle took place on 17 August, three days before the pair did battle at UFC 202.

Both men will face disciplinary hearings at a yet unknown date and the pair will face massive fines as well as possible suspensions over the incident according to UFC President Dana White.

Would the PPV of the fight have sold as well as it did if there hadn't been such drama at the press conference? We don't think so...

Could this affect the rumoured plans of McGregor's next fight?
