Conor McGregor has been hit with a big fine by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, but it sounds like the organization might run into some hurdles trying to collect.

The UFC’s featherweight champ was recently fined $150,000 by the NSAC, for McGregor’s involvement in a water bottle throwing incident, prior to UFC 202 in August.

McGregor recently spoke with the Rolling Stone, and the Irish star had this to say, about the fine:

“I thought they might respect [McGregor calling into the hearing] a little bit more,” McGregor says. “I owned up. I man’d up. I’m here. I apologized. I’m not trying to blame nobody, although they fired the rounds off first. I didn’t think they would even go that route because I didn’t think this was like a real thing. Are they going to come and arrest me or what the f–k is that? I wanted to give them the respect and I felt they would have respected that but they didn’t. So, whatever. It is what it is. Good luck trying to get it.”

McGregor also said that he doesn’t see himself fighting in Nevada in the “foreseeable future”. The fighter is scheduled to fight lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, November 12th, which will take place in New York City.
