I’m not surprised, motherfuckers.

You shouldn’t be either, as Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) previously promised to reduce the fine and suspension for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) something-weight Nate Diaz following last summer’s water-bottle war with Conor McGregor.

The commission loves to stick it to the Diaz brothers (then take it back when no one is looking).

From MMA Fighting:

Diaz’s punishment was dropped to a $15,000 fine and 15 hours of community service during a Wednesday meeting of the NSAC. The adjusted amount marks a sharp departure from the $50,000 fine — or 2.5 percent of Diaz’s $2 million purse for UFC 202 — and 50 hours of community service initially handed down to him by the commission in December.

McGregor’s punishment was reduced to a $25,000 fine (chump change) and 25 hours of community service. “Notorious” will have to serve a (somewhat) stiffer penalty foreign the aggressor during the incident, according to NSAC.
