Nevada State Athletic Commision is willing to allow a fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor to take place. NSAC executive director Bob Bennett said “What commission wouldn’t want the two biggest fighters in the world right now to fight in their state? Every commission wants Conor to fight in its state. We keep everyone under the guidelines of our codes and statutes. But if we’ve done a wrong, we need to right that wrong. The chairman and I think the penalties were too stiff.” when talking to The Los Angeles Times.
McGregor was involved in an incident with Nate Diaz at the UFC 202 pre-fight presser last August, which left him with a $150,000 fine. He is expected to appear in court for his case to be “re-examined” on March 22nd, in which they will more than likely lower his fine. Before being granted his boxing license in Nevada, McGregor must settle his fine.
Do we think this fight has a chance of taking place this year?
